FAMILY DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: (1) In what ways do people add things to Jesus? (2) Why is the word “alone” so important when it comes to Scripture, Christ, grace, faith, and God’s glory? (3) Is faith a gift from God to sinners or something sinners do on their own? (4) How might faith be understood as a work or as merit that earns salvation from God? (5) Why does the “alone” in “Christ alone” provide you with comfort, peace, and joy?
