Bible Text: Luke 11:33-36 | Pastor Scott LaPierre
Series: The Gospel of Luke
In the parable, The Lamp of the Body is the Eye, Jesus teaches spiritual sight is more important than physical sight. Our beliefs shape our actions and determine our eternity. If we're blind spiritually our lives will be filled with darkness, but if we spiritually see our lives will be filled with light.
Lesson 1: The two metaphors:
- (Part I) Light represents __________ (Luke 11:33; John 8:40-46; Acts 28:18; Eph 5:8; 1 Pet 2:9).
- (Part II) The eye represents our ______________ (Luke 11:34).
Lesson 2: Beliefs are so important, because they determine:
- (Part I) ______________ (Luke 11:35; Psa 18:28, 119:105; Pro 6:23).
- (Part II) ________________ (Luke 11:35; Matt 6:23, 7:22-23; John 8:32).

Memory Verses: Luke 11:34
Day 1: Read Luke 11:33, John 8:40b, John 8:45-46, 2 Cor 4:4 and discuss: What was God’s intention by sending Jesus into the world as it relates to truth and light in darkness? If Satan cannot keep the light from shining what does he do to keep the lost from responding?
Day 2: Read Luke 11:34-35 and discuss: What is the similarity between how an eye responds to light and how a belief responds to truth? (think healthy eye and unhealthy eye). How does what we believe affect the way we live? Why is this important?
Day 3: Read Luke 11:36, Ps 119:105, Pro 6:23, John 8:32 and discuss: What has God left us that is to be a light for us? What does it light for us? What is the difference between knowing of the truth and knowing the truth that will set us free? If darkness is the absence of light, then what does eternity look like for unbelievers?
