Based upon the Workbook by Henry Blackaby
We have studied that God is always at work around us (John 5:17, 19-20) and pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal (Romans 3:10-12). Last week we learned that when God reveals what He is doing, it is an invitation for us to join Him in His work (Exodus 3:1-14). This week we look at how God speaks (Genesis 22:1-18); as a family, reread these verses and review the sermon notes.
Review the MEMORY VERSE (John 8:47). Let’s hide the Word of God in our heart! MEDITATE; what does the verse say to you? Pray for understanding. Review last week’s verse: John 15:5. Review, Review, Review!
DISCUSS: What did I learn in the Sunday School lesson and the sermon about experiencing God through the different ways He speaks to us?
The question is not so much “does God still speak” but, are we listening? There are two types of listeners (read James 1:22-25): 1. A Purposeful Listener listens intently, with a desire to learn, understand and apply the Truth they have heard or read. 2. A Passive Listener is one that hears then walks away and forgets; they do not listen with the intention of applying it to their heart. What has God said to each of you through these verses? Read Ps 81:8 and discuss why you should listen intently. Which type of listener are you? What kind do you want to be?
THIS WEEK: How has God spoken to you and your family this week? Have you listened with purpose?
