SERIES TITLE: VICTORIOUS

SESSION TWO: VICTORY OVER DOMINATION

TEXT: ROMANS 8:5-17

INTRODUCTION. This chapter of Romans is one of the great mountain peaks in all Scripture. It expresses some of God’s most wonderful promises, and inspires grateful praise. Over four weeks we will explore these themes of victory, which is life as God intended.

DISCUSSION. Did someone ever bully you as a child, but then stopped when you grew older? Was it you that changed or the bully that changed or both?

EXAMINATION. vv.5-8 What are the contracts between flesh and Spirit in these verses? vv.9-11 What positive, encouraging truths and promises do you notice here? vv.12-13 Since “putting to death the deeds of the body” is in the present tense, what does that mean for the Christian life? vv.14-17 Which of these ministries of the Spirit blesses you the most and why? Four Gifts the Spirit Gives You to Make Victory Possible: 1. You have a new mind-set, vv.5-8 2. You have a new life NOW, vv.9-11 3. You have a new obligation, vv.12-13 4. You have a new identity, vv.14-17

APPLICATION.

• How do you go about setting your mind on the things of the Spirit? What does that look like in everyday life?

• What do you think are some of the obstacles that keep us from enjoying the abundant life now that Jesus came to bring us?

• How do you battle sin as a Christian?

• Do you struggle with the concept that God unconditionally loves you, accepts you, and approves of you in Christ? If so, why? What needs to happen for you to overcome that?

• Fact: What is a key truth that you understood from this passage?

• React: What did you feel?

• Act: What are you going to do?
