What one new idea or concept was presented to you in this lesson?

What one idea or concept was difficult for you to integrate into your own life?

What one idea or concept was encouraging to you in this lesson?

In “John, the Nonconformist” Beth Yoe wrote:

John came into the world for a special purpose and he was focused throughout his life on that purpose. John arrived on the scene living out the gospel. Many of us follow after the world and its futile pursuit of happiness simply because it’s the easier path and we want to blend in.

In what ways are you currently “blending in”?

In what ways are you living the special purpose God has for your life?

Yesterday, in “God’s Love … to Us and through us,” Beth included this quote by Oswald Chambers:

God loved me not because I was lovable, but because it was His nature to do so. Now He commands me to show the same love to others by saying, “love one another as I have loved you.”

God loves you! Do you really believe it?

In what ways are you showing God’s love to others?

Write It on Your Heart

Take a few minutes to memorize this verse:

“Go and make disciples of all nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19–20)
