Doing More Than Listen:

Who Can Find Out?
God reveals mysteries of self when He is trusted.


Read - Romans 1-3
Memorize - Romans 2:1
Apply - Pray for all the people who upset or irritate you this week. Ask God to help you forgive them for the offense that was done. Ask the Lord to reveal to you how you have done the same thing to others. Go and apologize to the people God reveals to you regardless of how much time has passed since the offense. Read these three passages of Scripture each morning, afternoon, and evening until you know them by heart: Matthew 6:14-15; Philippians 2:3-4; and Colossians 3:12-13.

Who Can Be Against Us?
God is always victorious in spite of appearances.


Read - Psalm 23-25
Memorize - Psalm 23:4
Apply - The trials that will be faced this week, physically and spiritually, are often unavoidable. Turn to Godís Word each morning for the direction and encouragement for the day ahead. Share the passage of Scripture with someone else during the day and why it was so encouraging, convicting, or instructive. Praise God in the same manner in the greatest of times as well as in the worst of times. When this happens in your life the words of 1 Peter 3:15 will come to life as people ask you for the reason for your hope.

Who Will Persuade You?
God influences believers and non-believers alike.


Read - 1 Corinthians 4-6
Memorize - 1 Corinthians 6:7
Apply Make sure that all plans are viewed and challenged by the Word of God. How will God be glorified in this decision? What will this decision speak to others about what is the highest priority of my life? How will this decision bring me closer to God? These simple questions can help keep focus on the Lord and following His direction when things become distracting or confusing.

How Can You Be Pure?
Purity is only found in application of Godís Word.


Read - Ephesians 4-6
Memorize - Ephesians 4:17
Apply - Meet with your family members or at least two other people once this week. Read a portion of Ephesians 4-6 together. Share what encourages you. Discuss one thing that you do not understand, or are unclear about. Make a specific plan to put something into practice in your life that you have read together. Check in with one another in one week to see how each of you has made out applying the Scripture.
