Principle for Bible Reading

Plan to Do, Not Just Hear

As you read the Word, remember the commandment of Jesus, reiterated by James, to be doers and not merely hearers of the Word (Matthew 7:24–27; James 1:22–25). Seldom does anyone wander into obedience. Often we must take time to not only digest what we have read, but to plan for how we can practically obey God’s will.

Study Questions

  1. Do you think that Satan can ruin your faith? Why or why not?
  2. Why is the devil roaring (1 Peter 5:8)? If a lion wanted to eat you, wouldn’t he silently sneak up on you?
  3. Watch the lab. What does Pastor John identify as the roaring of Satan? How can you obey 1 Peter 5:9 this week?
