Memory Verses: John 3:16-17

Day 1: Read Matthew 7:21-23 & discuss: What important word (just four letters) does Jesus use in these verses that indicates the number of people who are actually saved are not in the majority? What practical effects should this have in your own life?

Day 2: Read Matthew 7:21-23 & discuss: Do a little research on the major tenets of the (false) religions of the world.

What is the major difference between Christianity and false religions when it comes to the doctrine of salvation? What does the Bible teach?

Day 3: Read Matthew 7:21-23 & 19:16-23 and discuss: What is “easy” about the way that leads to death? What is “hard” about the way that leads to life? What is repentance? Is it a one-time thing or does it happen many times in your life? Both? Explain your answer.
