Our Belief effects our Behavior
Open your bibles for 1 John 5 and read verses 2 and 3 together.
What we believe effects how we behave. What we believe is our doctrine, and how we behave is our character. How do we know if we’re truly a loving and genuine follower of Jesus? If we love Jesus, obey Him and love people. Do you delight in obeying God’s commands, or are they a burden to you like a chore? Whatever you believe is how you will behave.
Discuss the following questions together:
1. What do you believe that effects how you behave?
2. How do I know if I am a loving Christian, and being a good ambassador for Jesus?
3. Has God ever commanded you to do something that felt like a burden? How did you get through it?
4. What should we do if God’s Word, or His commands become burdensome?
Practical: Go around the table and share your physical and spiritual New Years resolutions. What are you doing to help apply and achieve these resolutions in 2024?
