Lesson 3

Recommended Posts

The study lists the following reading to be completed before starting the question and answer portion.

Deuteronomy 4:1-9 / Deuteronomy 6:4-9 / Psalms 19:7-14 / 119:11 / 2 Timothy 3:10-17 / Hebrews 4:12

 

My notes on the above:

 

Deuteronomy 4:1-9 - Keeping Gods commandments and word. How could anyone with limited wisdom add to or subtract from God's word? To presume or make changes in God's laws assume a position of authority over God.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 - Our God is the only God. The first and greatest commandment is to love God with all of our being (Matthew 22:37-39). This, combined with the command to love our neighbor (Leviticus 19:18) encompasses all the other Old Testament laws.

Matthew 22:37-39 - 37 Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.

 

Leviticus 19:18 - 18 Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

 

We are also required to teach our children (or be an example to others) to love God and follow His word. We must be diligent to love Him and see Him in all aspects of life, not just those that are church related.

 

Psalms 19:7-14- God's word is perfect, trustworthy, right, radiant, pure, and sure.

Psalms 119:11 - Keep God's word in our hearts, so we do not sin against Him.

 

2 Timothy 3:10-17 - Scripture is God breathed (inspired) and equips those who trust in it for good works. False teachers will not reform on their own. They will go from bad to worse and need to be corrected to true faith in Jesus Christ. God's truth needs to be fought for.

 

Hebrews 4:12 - The word of God is living and active. Every thing is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account.
