November 5 - Session Six

For Here:
Take a look at Jesus' teaching about obedience. Then consider the questions that follow.
Matthew 7:24-29
"Therefore anyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law."

For discussion/reflection:
1. Why do you think Jesus stresses obedience so much?
2. Why were the people amazed at His teaching?
3. Have you ever "built foolishly"?
4. What do you need to put into practice?

To Go:
Take some time to look at the following verses to see what they have to say about obedience. Look them up in your Bible or at http://www.biblegateway.com/
Deuteronomy 10:12-13
Zechariah 6:15 (The Message)
2 Corinthians 9:12-15
Philippians 4:8-9

We're always happy to hear from you. Feel free to post comments or questions.
Blessings,
David
