This is the end of week 1/Beginning of week 2 discussion for Come Back to Jesus–and Don’t Bring your Blackberry.
Good morning! How is the study going — any questions? Please post a reply even if you do not have questions, so I know you’re there.
What did you learn from Chapter 1? Did something sneak up on you, something you didn’t consider a time-stealer or time waster before? I hope you had the chance to clear some time this past week and spend time sitting in front of the Lord.
Please remember the following points, all found in chapter 1:
* It isn’t the ‘thing’ that is bad — it’s our attitude toward it
* When we allow false gods to take over, the honor due to God and God only is given away to a person, place or thing in His creation.
* When these things block us and cause chaos, Satan wins through the use of our favorite toys.
Chapter 2 is about drifting. This isn’t an idol, of course, but drifting away from God/ your Christian walk can lead to false gods, and that’s why I’ve included it right up front. Our walk is never stagnant, we are either moving toward God or away from Him.
Please memorize Hebrews 2:1 (choose your version). Please be sure to do the homework.
Love you much! I will make a video, it will be up by Monday.
Father God, I ask you to bless each of these lovely people. Bring them to see with your eyes the whole of their lives; not to hurt them, Father, but to help them come closer to you. Please wrap your arms around each of them this week.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
