BSF Lesson 18: Psalm 23

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Scripture Memory Verse - Revelation 13:8 (NIV)
"All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast - all whose names have not been written in the Lamb's book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world."

Day One
What was meaningful to you in the lecture?
Satan likes us to be so involved with ourselves that we don't see the lost people out in the world. We talked in church today about 1 Corinthians 13, "Love is kind." And how that kindness isn't just being nice to people but Acts of Kindness. Those acts of kindness and acts of love need to also be towards those lost people in the world. We need to do for others, not ourselves. Share the love! xo

What help did you receive from the notes?
"God keeps us safely grounded in truth through His Word, and His armor shields us from Satan's schemes. When you are well-grounded in god's reality revealed in the Bible, you will recognize counterfeits. . . " Gotta keep a look out!

Day Six
What have you learned about God in this week's study?
Revelation 13 reminds us that since the Fall in the Garden of Eden, suffering has been and will be a part of this world until Christ returns. Suffering calls for perseverance in God's people as we await with assurance the end to all suffering, as revealed in Revelation. After reading a series of passages we were to answer each of these questions.

What does suffering do for God's people?
I found my answer in Romans 5:3-4

Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

What does God give His people to equip them in their suffering? He is with us! Psalm 23

What are we called to do since we have received comfort and God's equipping in our suffering? LOVE EACHOTHER!! John 15:12

12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
