Recite or write this week’s memory verse without peeking.
Take time to journal your interview with both a father and your heavenly Father.
Read John 15:9-11 (This week’s memory verses.)
How has Jesus loved us?
What does it mean to abide in His love? How do we do it?
What are the benefits to following Jesus’s teaching?
There is a BIG if in these verses. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love…
What do you think happens when we fail to follow Jesus’s commands? Does the Father stop loving us?
Remaining in the Father’s love through obedience means we can rest in it. When we, through disobedience, choose another way, we separate ourselves in relationship. He still loves us, but we miss the joy of His love in our lives.
Read John 3:16-17 (Last week’s memory verses)
Consider God’s heart for the entire lost world. Now consider His heart for you as His child.
