Personal Reflection / Growth Groups Questions
1. Theologians call it, sanctification. Sanctification is the process of God at work within you, transforming you from 'old, corrupted self' to 'new, righteous and holy, self'. How comfortable are you with trying your best and letting God do the rest?
Next Steps-
1. Memorize Ephesians 4:22, 24 (abridged), "...put off your old self which is being corrupted. And put on the new self, created to be like God in righteousness and holiness."
2. Contemplate the areas in your life where you need to turn away from deceit, anger, unwholesome talk and theft.
3. Cultivate self-control over your anger and try to look for opportunities to affirm and encourage others.
4. Attempt to be your best and allow the Holy Spirit to do the rest.

Pastor Neal encourages everyone to register and participate. The more who participate, the clearer the road forward will be. 
The last chance to attend What's Next? is Saturday, May 4, 8:30am – noon.
