Wednesday [BE>DO]:
Think about this week’s questions for group discussion.
  1. How did this week’s message help you better understand what gospel-focus really looks like within the life of a believer?
  2. Why must striving to live such a gospel-focused life begin with rightly placed affections? What does that look like? How do we pursue that?
  3. How can we evaluate our own lives to see whether we are more self-focused or gospel-focused? How can the focus on good things really be obstacles for us living our lives for the best thing? How can making decisions that the wisdom of the world affirms really be keeping us from truly living for Jesus and his kingdom?
