God’s Truth for Trying Times - 9/27/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 John 2:15-17 

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world--the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life--is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. [1 John 2:15-17 ESV]


CONSIDER: All the things we struggle with in the world our Temptations that God wants us to resist in his power and for his glory. God wants us to do his will, thereby proving his work of grace in our life, because the one who does God's will believes in Christ and dwells with him forever.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
