Small Group Questions:
1. Give as many reasons as possible from Philippians 3:36 why Paul could have boasted in the Law.
2. How did he ultimately view his credentials?
3. What advantages/credentials do you have to boast in your “righteousness?”
4. Why does justification exclude any possibility of boasting?
5. How can we be more intentional about ignoring our cultural distinctions and embracing our unity in Christ?
