BIBLE PASSAGE - Matthew 5.8

In some ways being a Christian is really tough - you've got to stand up, stand out and be different from the world around

What did Jesus say in Luke 12.49-53?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

One area that is tough is in an area called PURITY. What's that? It means being pure in your ways and in your thinking. We all find this hard. It means thinking like Jesus does about things and not as other people do.

Areas where this is difficult can be not thinking sexually about people, not being jealous about what other people have, wanting things we don't need and fighting...

What other areas and things do Christians struggle in & with?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

What areas does the Bible say we need to change in? Read Galatians 5.19-21 and discuss some of these things with people in your group or Christian mates

The Bible tells us ways we can be pure - Galatians 5.22-23 for example. There are 7 'fruits' of the Spirit listed here - that means 7 things that show God's Holy Spirit is at work in our life - what are they? (Try and learn these verses)

1 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

2 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

3 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

4 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

5 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

6 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

7 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Ask God to change you to be like this...

We need help to be pure - Galatians 5.25 gives us the answer - the Holy Spirit

Sometimes it's not cool to do what's right - it seems much more risky and cool to do what is wrong. This is called rebellion (also referred to as 'witchcraft' in the Bible) - it's what caused Satan to fall from heaven. Romans 8.6-7 says if people are controlled by sin then the result is death. Where people are controlled by the Spirit there is life and peace. Feel stressed or unhappy deep inside? It's time to deal with sin

Read 1 John 1.8-10. Now read Isaiah 1.18 - Jesus is waiting for you to pray today.
