This week as we celebrate personal Bibles given to 3rd Graders, Pastor Burkey gives us a lot to praise God for the great adventure we are on in this weeks message:
Monday: Read 1 John 2:15-17. Why can there be no middle ground between our love for God and our love for the world? What forces pull you the world's way? Why? What forces pull you God's way? How?
Tuesday: Read 1 John 2:15. Why can't we love both the world and the Father? How does the Bible help clarify the issue of understanding the difference between the two? What verses in particular guide you to stand alone on the Word of God?
Wednesday: Read 1 John 2:16. John argues that the pleasures of this world are fleeting. How do you see this in today's culture? In your own life? Which of these three most clearly motivates the people you know and live near: (1) the drive to meet their physical needs, (2) the drive to get things, or (3) the drive to succeed? Which one is most tempting for you?
Thursday: Read 1 John 2:17. How does te realization that the world is passing away lessen its appeal in life? Where do find the "eternal" perspective driving your your you life?
Friday: Read 1 John 2:15-17. John places a great emphasis on knowing and doing (living out) God's will. How will you do the will of God today? How will you know that it is God's will that are doing? Have you taken time to make sure you are doing you God's will and not the world's will in living life each day?
Saturday: Read 1 John 2 How do these verses help us gain a better understanding of our spiritual battle? How has the Bible, as the "sword of the spirit" kept you well armed for the battle ahead? Where would like to grow in your wisdom from you the Bible? Why?
