- If you are rescued and given this high calling, do you think that calling is for a life of victory or a life of defeat?
- How do you feel about your identity in Christ making you a target for attack? Would you rather dumb down your faith, disguise your mark, in the hope that you’ll be unnoticed and therefore have a quiet life?
- What would VICTORY look like in your life? If you knew you couldn’t lose the battle, what successes would you like to see achieved in your life?
God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He's set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.
