What kinds of things would need to change in your life to get you from here to there?
What do you think God wants your life to look like five years from now?
Read Romans 12:2.
What do you think it means to "conform to the pattern of the world?" What is the "pattern of the world?"
Which is worse: Someone who pretends to be religious at church or someone who pretends to be worldy (acts as if they are not a Christian) in the world? Why?
Is it true that every person is either:
1. A Christian who acts like a ChristianWhat do you think it means to be "transformed?"
2. A Christian who is a hypocrite (because they don't act like a Christian)
3. Not a hypocrite, but not a Christian.
Read Colossians 3:1-10. How are we transformed? Can we be transformed if we continue living exactly as we have in the past? Why or why not?
As you consider these passages, and look at the lists in Colossians; do you sense God calling you to a step of obedience?
How would you like the group to pray for you?
