            • What is the difference between the spirit, the soul, and the body?
      • Share anything that impressed you from the verses we read in this lesson.
      • In what way is the truth presented in the Bible about God’s purpose the same or different from other influences in your life (such as your family, culture, peers, church, etc.)?
      • In light of  what we have discussed, how can we pray for each other right now?
Consider one person who God has placed on your heart or someone in your life who needs Jesus. How can we bring Christ to them this week?

Some examples of ways to bring Christ to people: 
      • Pray that their hearts would be soft and opened.
      • Show them they matter to you by spending quality time with them (e.g. phone call, video call, workout, get lunch, study together, etc.)
      • Send them a text message of encouragement and include a verse you appreciated this week. 
      • Ask for their perspective about things going on around them in the world.
      • If the opportunity presents itself, tell them what you learned this week about what the Bible says about the God’s purpose for them.
