• Question 01
    To you, what element of God’s grace stands out the most in the stories of Theophilia and the thief on the cross? Why did you find this to be so significant?
  • Question 02
    You are never too bad for God’s grace. Why do you think people choose not to accept this wonderful truth? What would you say to someone who is fighting with the sin of their past?
  • Question 03
    It is never too late and we are never too hopeless for the grace of God. How do the stories of Theophilia and the thief on the cross illustrate this encouraging thought? What does it say to you about God’s grace and your own mistakes, sin and life?
  • Exercise 01
    Is your photo inside the “Showcase of God’s Grace?” Have you received God’s grace yet? Maybe you have questions about grace or how you might come to enjoy this wonderful blessing. Would you mind writing them down and then share them with you Mathetis group? If you are a Christian, reflect on the incredibly simple, yet simply incredible process you went through to receive God’s grace. Compare it with the verses in the digging deeper section and share with your Mathetis group how God’s amazing grace has changed your life. If you are not a Christian or if you are unsure if you have correctly followed the simple pattern God has designed for us to enjoy His grace, consider the verses below and how they pertain to your life. Reach out to your group for prayer. Feel free to ask any questions you might have, no matter how “minor” or “major” you might think it to be. If you wish, you can also request a Mentor to join this study or create a personal group which unites you and a Mentor into a one-on-one personal discussion. We want to do everything we can to make sure you enjoy the incredible gift of God’s grace!
