“I Am” Means “I Must”

Discussion Questions

  • When you hear a command to obey in Scripture that you must obey, what is your first response?
  • What are two ways that God’s commands direct us to flourish as humans made in God’s image?
  • Is it easier for you to think about your identity in Christ or your duty to obey Christ? Why is it important to keep both in proper balance?
