This week Pastor Deric preached a sermon entitled Getting a Greater Grip On the Gospel of Grace focussing on 2 Peter 3:18.

2 Peter 3:18
ICEBREAKER: What are you looking forward to most in 2019?
1. How do you define grace?
2. How would you distinguish the difference between growing in grace and growing in knowledge? (v.18)
3. Read 2 Corinthians 3:18. How might this tie in with Proverbs 4:18? How is it contrasted with the way of the wicked in verse 19?
4. Find three other verses from the New Testament that talk about growing in our salvation. What ideas or themes are common to them?
5. What is one aspect of God’s grace that you need to pray for today to help you in your walk?
6. What is one thing (point from the sermon) you can start practicing this week to grow more in the grace of God?
7. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?

Grace is not simply leniency when we have sinned. Grace is the enabling gift of God not to sin. Grace is power, not just pardon.” – John Piper
