Title: Obligation to the Spirit!

Text: Romans 8:12-13


  1. In 1 Timothy 1:5 Paul commends Timothy for a “sincere” faith. The word sincere means “without hypocrisy.” How does hypocritical “faith” scare the Body of Christ? What can we do to be sure to maintain a sincere faith?
  2. Discuss Galatians 5:16-25 in light of the statement in Romans 8:12-13 that we have an obligation to the Spirit and not to the flesh.
  3. Dr Douglas Moo says, “Security without responsibility breeds passivity but responsibility without security leads to anxiety.” How do you keep a balance between security in Christ and responsibility to live a holy life as a Christian?
  4. Discuss the “flee then pursue approach” to grow in our faith as revealed in 1 Timothy 6:11-12.
  5. Give thanks to the Lord for the truth of Romans 8:1 and 8:12-13.
