Memory Verses: Psalm 18:30-31
Day 1: Read Luke 10:21-24 and discuss: From whom is spiritual truth hidden? How does one know whether or not they are prideful? If you are convicted that you are, what should you do next? How do you “put-off” pride? What should you “put on” instead?
Day 2: Read Luke 10:21-24 and discuss: According to this passage, to whom is spiritual truth revealed? What other types of characteristics are not required, in order to be saved? Though we may have a certain amount of spiritual knowledge, where does the Bible indicate or imply that there are certain things we cannot and will not know? Knowing that you cannot know everything there is to know, how does this make you feel? What should the practical impact of this be?
Day 3: Read Luke 10:21-24 and discuss: In what realm, or ways, is God completely sovereign? In what ways can man exercise free will? According to Romans 9, what is God sovereign over? (Or, what practical effect should God’s sovereignty have in our lives?) According to 2 Tim. 2:20, in what ways can exercise free will? What practical effect should this have in your life?
