Opening Discussion Questions:

  1. When you were growing up, what did you crave that was either “illegal, immoral, or fattening”? 
  2. If you could have it all, what would “it” be?

Note: The World = The word John uses here is kosmos and in this context it means that which is alienated from God and is contrary to who God is.  It refers to pagan culture which is alien to God.

Study Questions for Discussion:

  1. After reading the study verses today of 1 John 2:15-17 which talks about The World and then read what it means in the Note above, what does this mean for John’s first readers?  For you?  
  2. Are human desires and God’s will always opposite? Explain.
  3. Why does John 3:16 tell us that God so loved the world… and John in 1 John 2:15 tell us to NOT love the world?  Explain the contradiction between these two meanings of “loving the world”.
  4. What do you think John is talking about when he says these 3 things…
    1. The lust of the flesh?
    2. The lust of the eyes?
    3. The pride of life? 
  5. What are the 4 soils talked about in Matthew 13:1-8, 18-23?

Questions for Application:

Prayer of Commitment:

In the strong and powerful name of Jesus I stand against the world, the flesh, and the devil.  I resist every force that would seek to distract me from my center in God.  I reject the distorted concepts and ideas that make sin plausible and desirable.  I oppose every attempt to keep me from knowing full fellowship with God.  By the power of the Holy Spirit I speak directly to the thoughts, emotions, and desires of my heart and command you to find your satisfaction in the infinite variety of God’s love rather than the bland diet of sin.  I call upon the good, the true, and the beautiful to rise up within me and the evil to subside.  I ask for an increase of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.  By the authority of Almighty God I tear down Satan’s strongholds in my life, in the lives of those I love, and in the society in which I live.  I take into myself the weapons of truth, righteousness, peace, salvation, the Word of God, and prayer.  I command every evil influence to leave; you have no right here and I allow you no point of entry.  I ask for an increase of faith, hope, and love so that, by the power of God, I can be a light set on a hill, causing truth and justice to flourish.  These things I pray for the sake of Him who loved me and gave Himself for me.  –Amen.

Opening Discussion Questions:

  1. Are you afraid of the dark?
  2. What do you do when a movie gets scary?
  3. What was your parent’s standard “line” or “command” every time you left home?

Read: Read 1 John 1:5-2:11, Proverbs 3:5-6, Psalm 119:105 

Study Questions for Discussion:

  1. From what is said here to counteract the false teachers, what do you think they were erroneously teaching about God?  About fellowship with God?  About sin?  About Christ’s forgiveness for us?  About knowing the truth?
  2. How do the different “claims” stack up (1 John 1:6, 8, 10, 2:4, 6, 9), and how does the author refute each claim?
  3. What does it mean to “walk in the light”?  How is this test useful in distinguishing who is actually a Christian?  How would this test help rule out spiritual counterfeits?  
  4. What command is John writing about in 1 John 1:7?  How is truth seen in Jesus and other Christians? 
  5. How are light and love linked?  Darkness and hate?

Reflect and Apply:

  1. How do you react to a Christian whose actions betray his words?
  2. Which “sin” separates us from God: Unknown sin?  Unavoidable sin? Continuous sin? Unacknowledged sin? One tiny sin? None of these?  All of these?  Why?
  3. As you get older, do you find it easier or harder to forgive your close friends and family?  Why?
  4. In this whole confession/forgiveness process, what is your part?  What is God’s part?
  5. What do you need to do this week to improve your fellowship with other people?  With God?

Prayer of Commitment:

Dear Jesus, I humbly come before You and ask You to lovingly intervene in my life.  Hold me up in my weakness.  Teach my heart how to follow after You and Your will.  I desire to acknowledge You in all of my ways that You will direct my paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).  Lord, teach me Your Word, Your will, that it might be a lamp unto my feet (Psalm 119:105).  Help me to be strong in You, that I will be able to overcome the devil’s schemes and live victorious in You, that You would receive the honor and glory for Your transforming power in my life.  I pray this in the strong and powerful name of Jesus, my Lord and savior.  Amen.

Service 6/21/20

1 John Series – Part 1 – Introduction – Jesus’ Impact on the Life of John

1 John 1:1-4

Opening Discussion Questions:

  1. What childhood memory is as clear today as the day it happened?
  2. Where were you living at the age of 7 and what were the winters like?
  3. Have you ever been to an Island, if so where?
  4. What kind of an impact did your dad have on you?

The Problem of False Teachers:

Apparently, a group with the fellowship got involved in false teaching, split off from the church (2:19), and were now hassling their former friends, probably trying to convince them to accept their “new” and “advanced” views (2:26).  This deeply troubled the church and thus John, as pastor, wrote to assure the believers in and around Ephesus how to be sure that they were true Christians with the assurance of eternal life.

The nature of the false teaching is not completely clear.  John does not describe it.  The recipients of his letter knew well enough what was being taught.  Still, by the nature of John’s defense of orthodox Christianity, certain features of the incorrect doctrine emerge.

In particular, the false teachers had a low view of Jesus.  They did not believe He was the Messiah (2:22; 5:1).  They did not believe He was the Son of God (5:5).  They denied that Jesus had come in the flesh (4:2).  They apparently claimed they did not need Jesus because they already knew God (1:6, 8, 10), and thus they had no need of Jesus’ atoning death (5:6) to provide forgiveness and a way back to God.  It is not by accident that John calls them “antichrists” (2:22).

This group had come to think of themselves as some sort of spiritual elite, claiming that they had a “deeper” understanding of Christianity, probably by direct revelation (4:1-6).  As an antidote to such spiritual pride, John reminded his readers over and over that true followers of Christ are called to love one another; not to look down on their brothers and sisters who do not measure up to their own supposed, superior insight.   

Read: Read 1 John 1:1-4

Study Questions for Discussion:

  1. In 1 John 1:1 the writer states – “the Word of Life” was from the beginning.  Who exactly is he talking about?

In the Gospel of John, John 1:1-2, the writer begins… “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.”

The coming of Jesus inaugurates a new creation.  See Genesis 1:1… “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

THE WORD: This is the translation of the Greek word Logos, a word with multiple meanings.  A popular form of Greek thought taught that the Logos was an impersonal force or principle that gave order and meaning to the universe.  The Old Testament spoke of the Logos as the divine wisdom active in creation and human affairs.  

LIFE: This has a double meaning, referring to both physical life and the supernatural illumination (“the light”) that brings spiritual life to people.  

  1. Why does John make a point of his firsthand experience with Jesus?  Why is it important that Jesus was “seen” and “heard”?
  2. What are the 3 ways John, the author, personally experienced “the Word”?  Why does the author make a point of his firsthand experience with Jesus?

Apply:

  1. When did Jesus become more than just a name to you?
  2. How would you describe your relationship with Him now?
  3. In describing Jesus to others, what have you seen, heard and would you like to testify about.  
  4. What is the message you would like to proclaim about what you have seen and heard?
  5. Describe what these 4 things mean to you and your relationship with Jesus… a) Know God, b) Find Freedom, c) Discover Purpose, d) Play a Role

Prayer of Commitment:

Lord Jesus, thank You for creating me and giving me life; physical life, spiritual life, and eternal life.  I ask You to be the Lord of my life and I want to worship You and have fellowship with You, now and forever more!   I love You Jesus!  Amen.

  • How does your relationship with God change in the midst of the storm?

Read Luke 8:22-25

Vs. 23 – When Jesus fell asleep… Sleeping peacefully can be an indication of trust in the power of God to protect one from harm.

Psalm 4:8  In peace, I will lie down and sleep, for You alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Vs. 23 – A Squall… The sea of Galilee was a deep, freshwater lake, 13 miles long and 8 miles wide.  It was pear-shaped and ringed by mountains, though open at its north and south ends.  Fierce winds often blew into this bowl-shaped lake, creating savage and unpredictable storms.

Vs. 24 – Master… This was a common term of address for a rabbi.  We’re going to drown! As their later response indicates, they had no expectation that He would have any power over the storm. They simply expected Him to help bail out the boat since it was being swamped. All was calm. The picture is that of a sudden, unexplainable calmness replacing what, minutes before, had been a life-threating storm. 

Study Questions for Discussion:

  • If you had been in the boat when it seemed to be sinking what would you have said?
  • Why did the disciples awaken Jesus?
  • What was the tone in Jesus’ voice when He said, “where is your faith”?
  • When a crisis situation comes up, do we expect Jesus to answer our prayers? 
  • When we pray about the coronavirus what do we expect Jesus to do, or not do, in response to our prayers?
  • If we cried out to Jesus and asked Him to help us against this COVID-19 and later today the news began to broadcast that they had found a cure that worked every time administered, would we give credit to Jesus or science?  
  • If we cried out to Jesus and asked Him to help us against this COVID-19 and later today the news began to broadcast that virus had just immediately died all over the world, would we give credit to Jesus then?

Questions for Application:

  • What are you going through now that would cause Jesus to question your faith?
  • What PRACTICAL things would God have you do during this coronavirus storm? 
  • What steps are you going to take to be PRAYERFUL during this coronavirus storm?
  • How or to whom are you going to PROCLAIM Jesus to during this coronavirus storm?

Prayer of Commitment…

Lord, help us to trust You when the storms come.  Give us the peace that comes with Your presence. Also, Lord, help us to know how and when to be practical, prayerful, and boldness to proclaim You to others.  In Jesus’ name, we pray.   Amen.
