Ever Increasing Glory – August 29, 2019

Job 31.1-33.33; 2 Corinthians 3.1-18; Psalm 43.1-5; Proverbs 22.8-9

Wouldn’t it be nice if when we came to a place where we expressed our belief in God and his redemption through Jesus Christ, we suddenly became perfect? No more wrestling with sin, no more living in the reality of a glory we have inherited, but haven’t fully received. The bad news is that it doesn’t work that way, obviously. But there is good news. God is continuing to work in us and through us and we are being transformed into people who look more and more like him. Praise be to God who changes us into his image!

Questions:

Do we believe that being wicked or doing evil leads to calamity? Why or why not?

In what ways have you discovered that your ability to do good is not based on your own qualifications, but the abilities given to us by God?

How does putting your hope in God eliminate discouragement from your life?

How do you show generosity to others?
