End of week 5
Bible study plan: Come Back to Jesus — and Don’t Bring your Blackberry
I know that by now we should be nearing the end of week 6, but those whom I spoke with have said they are on week 5. So today’s lesson is going to be on pages 65-78. In the video, we will go over 1 Peter 1 so you might want to have your Bible ready.
James 1: 12 says, “blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” It is a good reminder because, as we begin to worship God better, we often experience Satan kicking back at us. Please try to see this for what it is, and don’t let him win!
• True holiness is, both internal and external.
• There needs to be a continuum between who we say we are and how we act.
• We are chosen, just as Jesus is chosen, so…
• We must walk in holiness.
On day 3, we touched again on drifting-this time since we have actively removed a false god. People who have done this can easily begin to drift because of the emotions involved. Remember that the Lord said, “they are my people.” You are his. He is always there for you.
Because of this, he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5). Trust him into your deepest, darkest secrets. Trust your entire self to his care. He will always bring you to victory.
If you haven’t read day 5 of the Bible study, please read it now and answer the questions.
Lord, I thank you so much for those who have joined me here for this study. We have removed false gods, Lord, and we know that you will lovingly continue to show us where our mistakes are and lead us on the right path. Thank you for your care. Thank you for your patience with us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
