GOSPEL FLUENCY

QUESTIONS
GOSPEL FLUENCY
As you study the daily readings, pause and ask these questions to better understand the good news.

1:

Who is God / Jesus?

3:

Who are we in light of that work?

2:

What has He done? What is He doing?

4:

How can we live in light of who we are?

1:

What am I doing or experiencing right now?

2:

In light of what I am doing or experiencing, what do I believe about myself?

3:

What do I believe God is doing or has done?

4:

What do I believe God is like?

How to process feelings or circumstances using Gospel Fluency:
If the answer to these questions is something we know is NOT true about God, then ask the questions again , starting with what we know about who God / Jesus is.
