FRAMING IT UP
In remembering the sermon, answer these questions: 
 
Read Romans 15:1-7. What is our ultimate purpose?
Read Matthew 3:16-17 and discuss the following characteristics of the Father’s nature:
— He is there
— He is engaged
— He is vocal
— He identifies us as His own
— He expresses His love out loud
— He praises and adorns us
 
FILLING IT IN
Take some time to meditate on the same truth in these verses:
 
Romans 15:1-7; Ephesians 2:17-20; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Galatians 4:4-6; Psalm 18:1-19; Romans 8:15-16; James 1:17; Psalm 45
 
WORKING OUT YOUR SALVATION
As God's Word exposes my heart, what does this mean for my life?
 
In what ways do we project our experiences with less than perfect fathers onto our understanding of God as Father?
 
How does the reality of God as our Father energize to live as faithful, obedient, and loyal children?
