WEEK 6 (Page 22,23,24) - STUDY REVIEW


REVIEW PAGE 22
CHOOSE THE STATEMENTS THAT ARE TRUE & CORRECT:
       ___ The key to a right and intimate relationship with God is knowing the right formula of
               things to do (praise + read Bible + meditate + pray = Intimacy With God).
       ___ It's not just what you do, but also how you do them and why you do them (it's what is in
              your heart).
       ___ The proof of love for God is you trust and love Him enough to submit yourself and your
               life into His hands and follow & obey what He tells you or leads you to do (I John 5:3,..)
       ___ Jesus' idea of prayer and love for God is: "not my will, but your will be done."

TRUE OR FALSE: YOU CAN OBEY AND FOLLOW JESUS CONSISTENTLY WITHOUT FULLY SUBMITTING YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE TO HIM.

READ JOHN 14:15-23 ; MARK T FOR TRUE OR F FOR FALSE:
       ___ You can have a close relationship with God without having to obey and follow God
       ___ Submitting yourself, obeying, and following Jesus and His ways and commands will lead
               you to a closer relationship with Him.
       ___ Submitting, obeying, and following Jesus will also lead to you being able to see Him and
               know Him more and more ("... I too will love him and
show myself to him.")
       ___ Another result of submitting, obeying, and following Jesus: He will be able to fill you
              more and more with His life (abundant life), and He will live & work in and through you.

WHICH OF THESE ARE SOME OF GOD'S PLANS AND GOALS FOR YOU:
       ___ God wants you to ascend up the "church ladder" of status and position.
       ___ God wants to take you from doing kind acts, loving acts, ... to
being a kind person, being
              a loving person,
being a patient person, being a forgiving person,...
       ___ God wants you to be intimate with Him and one with Him and His will and ways.
       ___ God wants you to have full and
abundant life (His life flowing in and through you)
       ___ God wants to make you an instrument of His to reach a lost world ("expanded life")
       ___ God wants to you to become a famous Christian and write books and get on tv.
       ___ God's ultimate goal for you is to become more and more like Jesus.

READ 2 CORINTHIANS 12:2-4 & THEN REVIEW PAGE 23 & 24 ; CHOOSE THE CORRECT STATEMENTS:
     ___ When Paul wrote about being "transformed" and "sharing in Jesus' glory" and about
            eternity in heaven (Rom. 12:1-2; Rom. 8:17-18, 28-29 ; 2 Cor. 3:18,...) he was writing
            about things that he thought or speculated might possibly happen.
     ___  Paul wrote about these things authoritatively, because God revealed them to Him and he
             was allowed to see heaven (paradise) and see God's ultimate goal for His children
             (see
1 Cor. 2:6-10 and 2 Cor. 12:2-4)
  ___ Paul saw and understood that knowing Jesus through an intimate love relationship, knowing
         His life & love & power flowing through Him, and becoming like Jesus was the ultimate
        "
prize" (Phil. 3:14), and he totally abandoned himself to Jesus and passionately served Him.
  ___ Paul clearly understood the truth that our life here will determine
who we will be for eternity,
         and the more like Jesus we become here in this life will determine how much of God's glory
         we will share and have forever in God's eternal kingdom.
