BIBLE STUDY #1
One of the most important habits to get into that will help you grow as a new Christian is memorizing Bible verses. In Psalm 119:11 the Bible says, "I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You." Memorizing Bible verses and doing what they say, will help you to fight against temptation and instruct you to do what is right. We encourage you to memorize the verse below to give you a better understanding of the topic of salvation.
John chapter 3, verse 16, or abbreviated, it would look like this: John 3:16. "
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life
John 3:3, 7 - In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God... You should not be surprised at my saying 'You must be born again.'"
Our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us saying, "You must be born again." In this lesson you should learn:
Why we need to be saved.
How God has provided for our salvation.
How we can have that salvation personally.
Before you start,
. Ask God's Holy Spirit to open your heart to receive His Word and to show you how to apply it in your life. Do not copy the scriptures, but answer the question briefly and in your own words.
Sin is the failure to obey any of God's commandments or laws.
1. How does the Bible describe sin?
I John 3:4
2. What is the result of sin?
To better understand the effects of sin, think of death as
Spiritual death -- Your sins have
you from God.
Physical death -- It
the spirit and soul from the body.
Eternal death -- If you remain lost in your sins, they will
you from the mercy of God forever. (This is the greatest punishment of Hell.)
means "to do right: to be totally innocent before God in regards to obeying His commandments."
3. How many of us are righteous?
4. How many of us have sinned?
5. What word explains why God would send His only Son to die for us?
6. Does He love us as sinners or do we have to become good enough for God to love us?
7. Read each of the verses below and indicate if we are saved by Jesus only or if God allows another way for salvation.
I Timothy 2:5
God's Word says sin causes death. Jesus took that penalty upon Himself in our place.
8. How did Jesus take the penalty of sin for us?
I Corinthians 15:3
9. What must we do to have Him save us from the penalty of sin?
means "to cling to, trust in and rely on."
means "to admit guilt or acknowledge one's sin."
10. The Bible uses several words to show the contrast between "works" and "faith." Next to each of the following scriptures write the words that describe how we are saved.
11. Why does the Bible say we are not saved by our works?
is getting what we deserve. If God were only a just God, we would all perish.
is not getting what we deserve. It is by His mercy He can forgive us.
is getting something we don't deserve at all. By God's grace (not our own merit) He sent us His Son.
is accepting as truth, things which cannot be proved by the senses. Faith is trusting God.
12. What should be the result of God's goodness and kindness to us?
means "a change of mind." It is through change in the hearts of men, away from sin and toward God. It should include:
A genuine sorrow for our sins.
Cleansing from continually sinning.
A desire to submit to God's will.
13. When we repent, what happens in Heaven?
Have the angels rejoiced over you? All you have to do is pray this simple prayer and mean it in your heart: "Jesus, I know I am a sinner. Forgive my sins and take control of my life, Amen."
From memory, write out your memory verse from the top.
Do you have any prayer requests? Please enter them below and a Counselor will pray over them.
