  • How would you describe your relationship with God?
  • Are you relying on the power of the Holy Spirit to live the Christian life?
  • What are you doing to pursue your relationship with God?

Memorize: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
