On Sunday, February 21, 2016, I preached a sermon based on Romans 5:1-11 at Wildwood Community Church.  This message was part 3 in the “ABC’s of Faith” series.  Below are a set of questions for group discussion or personal reflection related to this message.

Sermon Questions for Reflection or Discussion:

  1. Read Romans 5:1-11
  2. When was the last time someone tried to sell you something?  What was their strategy?
  3. Paul’s strategy and sharing the Gospel did not begin with its benefits, but began with our need for salvation (Romans 1:18-3:20) and Jesus full payment for our salvation that we receive by faith (Romans 3:21-4:25).  Only after presenting those two pillars does Paul expound upon the blessings of believing in Jesus (5:1-11).  Why do you think Paul chose to present the Gospel in this order?
  4. What does it mean to have “peace with God” (Romans 5:1)?
  5. What does it mean to have “access to grace” (Romans 5:2)?
  6. What does it mean to have “joy in suffering” (Romans 5:2b-4)?
  7. What does it mean to be “indwelt by the Spirit” (Romans 5:5)?
  8. What does it mean to be “loved by God” (Romans 5:6-8)?
  9. What does it mean to be “saved from wrath” (Romans 5:9-10)?
  10. What does it mean to be “reconciled to God” (Romans 5:11)?
  11. What stood out to you most from today’s message?  Any particular application you are taking away from this message?
