Application Points to Sunday's Sermon
1. Are there ways that you are flirting with temptation and hanging out on the doorstep of sin?
2. Are you sewing fig leaves to cover your shame or are you taking it to the cross?
3. Do you see God as one who you can run TOWARDS or do you see Him as someone to hide from and run away from?
4. What could you possible hope to achieve by hiding or running away from God?
5. Can you take personal responsibility for your sin rather than blame shift because you believe that the Gospel is big enough and God is gracious enough to completely cover your shame?
6. Are you allowing Christ to bare your shame, take your fig leaves and do you understand that there is NOTHING that you could ever do that could keep you from RUNNING to Him and receiving His all sufficient grace?
