faithfulness to God

The Parable of the Two Sons; Andrei Moronov (2012)

Summary:
For many people, their embraced faith allows them to believe what they wanted to believe in the first place. But for followers of Jesus, we experience new life when Jesus changes our mind, and sends us in new directions.

Some discussion Questions:
1.Why were the chief priests and the elders of the people reluctant to embrace John and Jesus?
2. According to Philippians 2:1-13, in what ways are my attitudes similar to how Jesus lived in this world?
3. Reflecting on Ezekiel 18:1-4, 25-32, what does the life of a righteous person look like in my time and place?
