Wash Your Heart - Discussion Questions

  1. What is your reaction when presented with the idea that you can live free from sin in this life?

  2. Do you find yourself happily willing to pursue a holy life, or do you find that you“push back” against the idea of present freedom from all sin?

  3. According to 1 John 2:15-17:  Can the one who loves the things of the world love God?  Describe the one who lives forever.

  4. Keeping in mind Scriptures like those listed in the video, does a Christian seem to have an active or passive role in living a pure life?  Consider what Jesus said in Matthew 18:8-9.

  5. When you sinned last, did you have to, or could you have chosen otherwise?

  6. Can you stop sinning for a day? How about an hour?  A whole minute?  If you can choose not to sin for a minute, great!  Now, trust God, and walk in faith a minute at a time.

  7. What sin do you have to commit tomorrow?

  8. According to 1 Cor. 10:13, will God allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able?  What does God provide for the believer in every instance of temptation?  In what ways might the escape be provided?

  9. Consider Rom. 12:1-2:  Does a sacrifice continue to live, or does it die?  How should the Christian’s life be like that of a sacrifice with regard to the world?  How does this enable us to know the will of God?

  10. Is being tempted a sin?  Read: James 1:14-15, Hebrews 2:18, 4:15

  11. Temptations come to everyone (even Jesus!), but sin is optional.  Discuss the following Scriptures:
    Genesis 4:7, 1 Corinthians 15:34, John 5:14, 8:11, Acts 23:1, 24:16, 2 Timothy 1:3, Hebrews 9:14, 1 John 1:6-7, 2:28-29, 3:3-24, 4:17, 5:18, 1 Peter 4:19, 2 Peter 2:19, Romans 6:1-14, John 8:31-36

  12. Using the definition of “the world” from the video:  Identify what “the world” is to you, and prayerfully consider how God wants you to deal with it in your own life.
