“A Gift of Limits” (Philippians 2:5-8)
God has a purpose for each one of us. When we understand our limits, we can fulfill the purpose of our lives properly. When our boundaries are clarified, we are set free from the things that are outside of our limits. As a result, we can live out our full potential. Limits are a gift from God.
For LifeNet groups and personal reflection:
1) Read Matt 4:1-11. During the 40 days of testing in the wilderness, the devil repeatedly tried to get Jesus to go beyond the limits the Father had set for him. What are the limits?
In what way(s) is there spiritual warfare raging over your life around the issue of limits?
2) Share two or three significant limits God has placed in your life.
Instead of seeing these limits as our “enemies,” how might they be our “friends” from God?
3) What does make you resist a gift of limits? What are you trying to prove? What are you so anxiously striving for that you've lost your rest?
4) In what way(s) is that more difficult than living out what other people, authorities, or the culture think you should do with your life?
