~Jesus had to call some of his future aides more than once to follow him from then on. In what way do you feel you’ve only partially committed yourself to a new and deeper spiritual life? What will you do to make it a full commitment?

~Recall a time when you were completely defeated, then after you admitted it, you were thrust into success. Did it make you feel like there was a higher power in charge somewhere who wanted you to know it was him and not you causing the success? Relate that to Romans 8:28 in the Bible.

~Did you ever resent someone who made a stronger commitment to God than you, and, therefore, you resented that person? Did you ever do or say things to put them down? What will you do to encourage that person instead?
