We begin our Complete Love (Summer) journey with 1 John 4:16-17. We will be looking forward this summer to scripture, experiencing activities together (PDF), and improving our facilities . Future series will be focused on: Love God (Fall), Love Your Family (Winter), and Love Your Neighbor (Spring).
Day 1: Read Galatians 5:1. When you were first on your own, what did "freedom" mean to you? Free to do what? Free from what? How do you need Christ to "liberate you into freedom" in your spiritual growth?
Day 2: Read Romans 6:14. What kind of legalisms do Christians get caught up in? What motivates you to live a good life?
Day 3: Read James 1:23-24. What do you use a mirror for during the day? How is the Bible like a mirror for us? As you look into the mirror of the law, what do you see about yourself? As you look into the eyes of Jesus, what do you see about yourself?
Day 4: Read Romans 6:20-22. “Everybody’s gotta serve somebody.” What’s the difference in your life between being a slave to sin and being a slave to God? If we realize sin is no longer our master, how is your life different?
Day 5: Read Romans 6:23. If you try to earn your relationship with God, you are doomed. Life with God is a gift from God. It’s very important that we understand that we live by grace. How do Paul’s words in this verse give you comfort and hope? Take time today to thank God for His incredible gift.
Day 6: Read John 14:6. How does Jesus describe the great path of freedom in this verse? Since this is the only way to freedom, why do we stray off this path? How have you grown in your relationship with Jesus in the past year? What steps in freedom can you take in the week ahead?
