Revelation Chapter 1
PLANTING SEEDS: (Truth) Truth can only be found in God’s word. People can share their opinion on truth, which I am going to do with you in a moment during my “Coffee Cup Counseling” section but I encourage you to personally start getting into the word and studying scripture. It will open up a brand new perspective and new life for those that take the time to begin or rekindle their relationship with God.
Scripture Discussion: Revelation Chapter 1
COFFEE CUP COUNSELING: (My Personal Perspective)
This is just our personal experience or perspective with scripture. By discussing out loud with one another, it allows us accountability for our thoughts and gives us an opportunity to interact with one another to give testimony on how scripture is personally changing our lives each day. When we do our family study, we go round robin and share our favorite part of what we read, or questions we had about the scripture. I will go first:
The part that stuck out to me today was how at the time John shared revelation with us, he was exiled to a deserted island to be alone probably without any medical attention, companionship, or food or water of any sort. He had to depend on God only. And as he leaned into God, God not only used him to share a warning with him to give to us, but he supplied all of John’s needs. We tend to think, by looking at the world today that we are a very persecuted church, but is that really the case? When God spoke to Noah, how many people were living for God? When Shadrach Meshach and Abednego were being persecuted, how many people were living for God? They were thrown into a furnace. Daniel, was thrown into a lions den, The 12 apostles were all imprisoned, exiled, beat and killed, for their faith. All of God’s people have suffered persecution from even Religious leaders, of some sort for even mentioning Jesus. Isn’t it cool that today, I can freely sit here and share the Gospel with you. We can discuss it freely, currently without any fear of being imprisoned, beat, exiled, or killed. What a perfect time to share Christ with the world, who is currently willing to listen!
So let’s get into God’s word, speak truth and set the captives free.
