Do the Book:

  1. – Discuss with a Partner or group what was the most impacting aspect of today’s message and how it has encouraged you.
  2. – Based on today’s study, write down WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE on a sticky note or card. Place prominently and confess daily.
  3. – As you have ‘freely received’ God’s love, consider to whom you can ‘freely give’ God’s love by words of approval, an act of forgiveness, or words of blessing. Send a note or text to this person. 
  4. – Read Romans chapter 8 several times this week; prayerfully reflect on WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE “In Christ.”
