  1. Describe a time where you felt God didn’t love you and how you responded…what brought you back knowing He does love you continually?

  1. What are your thoughts on the new way to consider:

    1. Westminster Confession: “The chief end of man is to glorify God AND enjoy Him forever”;

    2. John Piper: “The chief end of man is to glorify God BY enjoying Him forever”;

    3. New Thought: “The chief end of man is to LOVE God, THEREBY GLORIFYING Him forever”.

  1. Adoption: What does it mean to be “adopted” by God “through Jesus Christ”?

  1. For what purpose are we “adopted” (Vs. 5) and what does that mean?

  1. What does Paul mean in verse 6, that we have been adopted “to the praise of [God’s] glorious grace”?

  1. What do Christians receive from the Triune God when “adopted” that physical adoptees do not and why is that?

  2. Someone once said, “The pay isn’t much but the rewards are out of this world!” How does this affect the way you live your life now knowing you will receive an inheritance?
