BSF Lesson 11: Singing Your Praises

Sunday, December 6, 2015

Scripture Memory Verse - Revelation 5:9 (NIV)
"And they sang a new song, saying: 'You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.' "

Day One
What was meaningful to you in the lecture?
One of the principles from the lecture was, "Jesus is one with God and is worthy of all our devotion." Devotion - attachment, loyalty, fidelity, dedication, commitment.

We were then asked to rate ourselves in these areas of devotion. How attached am I to Jesus? How loyal am I? How dedicated am I? How committed? Definitely things to think about and work on!

What help did you receive from the notes?
Wow! These notes were just amazing and hands down my favorite I've read so far in this study of Revelation. When I read the notes I always have a highlighter and pen to mark anything new, interesting, extra special, etc. And these notes have highlighter and marks all over them!

The help I received from the notes is to continue singing my heart out in praise. The past couple of weeks we've been learning abut God's throne room and now we're reading how Jesus is at the center being sung to by the elders, living creatures and thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand angels

God can deepen your love for Himself through music, especially music that exalts Christ. Music expresses the language of the heart. It has a unique ability to impress on our hearts truths about God even before our minds fully grasp them.

Singing is one of my favorite parts of church and this reminds me to keep singing (no matter how bad I am)!

Day Six
What have you learned about Jesus in this week's study?
I learned a lot in this week's study (like I said, one of my favorites!), but one particular part reminded about the Holy Spirit. After reading multiple passages about the Holy Spirit throughout history - we were asked how is it taking on roles in our lives?

After reading John 16:5-15 I know that the Holy Spirit will guide me to all truth and will help me to glorify Jesus. The Holy Spirit is always with me, helping me to build my relationship and faith and to learn God's word.
