What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of God's Word?
What do you think it means to say that God's word Is a map for our lives? I what ways or circumstances does having a map help us? It equips us for every good work! It changes everything. See 2 Timothy 3:16-17
What does It look like for you to read, study, and know God's word? What are helpful things you do to spend time with the Lord? Time, place, plan. Proverb of the day. Share your quiet time routine.
What are some of the most common ways that you trust your own map? How can you fight against this? Share some of your ditches or ways that you trust your flesh over God's word.
Read Jeremiah 17:5-6 What does It mean when It says that the one who trusts In himself will be like a bush In the wastelands? Not abiding or walking with the Lord leads to a life marked by pain, guilt, sadness, anxiety, ect.
Read Jeremiah 17:7-8 How can we have a life marked by confidence and trust In the Lord? What does this practically look like?
If someone asked you what Is the point of God's word what would you say? It shows us we are misled, that we have a map to salvation, and gives us our mission for daily life.
