Questions to Consider:
1. How do you perceive the relationship between faith and works?
2. When you consider the matter of the gospel as a holistic endeavor, involving our head (intellect) our hearts (passions, desires) and our hands (our works), which area do you feel is most accessible to you? Which area(s) seem least cared for or attended to?
3. Do you tend to view works primarily as a means of earning God's favor, or an agreement with His good design for human flourishing?
