What impacted you from the message this weekend? What challenged you or encouraged you? How did the message impact your understanding of spiritual growth?

What things have helped you grow in Christlikeness during different seasons of your life? What things are helping you become more like Jesus now?

Read Romans 8:28-30. What words and ideas stick out to you in these verses? What is the purpose of God saving people? What does it mean to be “conformed to the image of his Son”?

The Apostle Paul is describing a process of becoming like Jesus. This is often called the process of sanctification. What does it look like to become more like Jesus? What is necessary for that transformation to happen?

Read 2 Corinthians 3:18. Take this verse word-by-word. What words do you have questions about? What is Paul communicating?

The word “transformed” is important to this verse. What does it mean? What does “being transformed into his image” mean in the life of a follower of Christ?

Read Romans 12:1-2. What does this verse tell us about living for God? How does what a person worships (what is most important to us) affect what that person becomes?

What do these verses tell us about being transformed? According to verse 2, how are we transformed? What does this process look like?
