Points for Thought and Dis­cus­sion From

  1. Isai­ah believes his unwor­thi­ness is also com­mun­al. How might his puri­fic­a­tion affect the com­munity? (Isa 6:1–8)
  2. How should we put to death bod­ily deeds while uphold­ing the hon­our of being an heir of God? (Rom 8:12–17)
  3. Luth­er said John 3:16 is the gos­pel in mini­ature. What could you add to com­plete its message?
