Message Series: Command – Love God
The Command Series
- Week 1: Myth- Rules Based Faith
- Week 2: The New Command
- Week 3: Love God
- Week 4: Love Others
Tonight, we continued our four week conversation on Command. Last week, we focused on how love isn’t based off following rules; God desires to have a relationship with us. This week we will be focusing on the first three commandments, and how they are based around loving God. We will focus on the how the first three commandments relate to our everyday lives.
Some questions for family discussion:
- Do you actually trust and believe that God is always there for you, through the good and the bad? Explain why or why not.
- What things in your lives do you place above God, or make a higher priority than God?Using God’s name in vain is offensive to Him, and there is a commandment forbidding it. Are there any words that offend you or make you cringe when you hear them? Explain why. Is there anything someone has said that made you mad or react negatively? (I react negatively to the word retarded because of my brother Matt.)
- What things in your lives do you place above God, or make a higher priority than God?
So when you think about being a Christian, know that it isn’t about following a whole list of rules. It is about Love. Loving God. And Loving Others.
We pray that great conversations will be sparked between you and your kids. We are praying for you and your family. See you next week!Filed Under: High School, iGroups, Just For Parents, Middle School, Sunday Night Live, Youth, Youth Message Series
