Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of 1 John: Week 2, Day 2: 1 John 2:3-29

Summary of 1 John 2:3-29

If we obey God’s word, love for God is in us. If we live in God, we must live as Jesus did. If you love your neighbor, you are in God’s light. Your sins have been forgiven; you have overcome evil; you are strong and the Word of God lives in you. Don’t love the world and what is in it; love God instead.

Whoever denies that Jesus is the Son of God is the antichrist. Beware those trying to lead you astray. Continue in Christ.

Questions for 1 John 2:3-29

3) If we obey God’s Word, we have assurance He is in us because our love for God is truly made complete in them. You must live as Jesus did if you claim to live in him. Christians are commanded to love their brother and sister. Christians are commanded to not love the world or anything in the world.

4) Perseverance here is characterized by the words “remain in (or abide) and “continue in.” They hold onto God’s truth. False teachers deny Jesus is the Christ and that he is also God, both fully human and fully God. They speak against the truth in the Bible. God’s Word will help you hold onto the Truth.

5) The world normalizes sin and accepts it. Examples include striving to “have it all” and being materialistic, so anything you desire more than the Father. Believers can put God above all else and let their actions shine God, rather than the world. You can always give God the credit over everything else.

Conclusions to WordGo Study of 1 John 2:3-29

By obeying God’s Word, you can have assurance He is in you. Obviously, that’s easier said than done.

Next, persevere. If you obey and persevere, you cannot be led astray by false teachers.

We are to remain in the Lord, in God’s word, and in faith. We are to lean on him and live in his word.

Obeying God leads to knowing Him more.

Let the Holy Spirit guide you.

Your sins have been forgiven; you have overcome evil; you are strong and the Word of God lives in you. Don’t love the world and what is in it; love God instead.

Whoever denies that Jesus is the Son of God is the antichrist. Beware those trying to lead you astray. Continue in Christ.

Summary of 1 John 3

We are the children of God; He loves us. We are like him. Jesus takes away our sins. Don’t let others lead you astray. You are righteous if you do right.

Love one another. Don’t be surprised if the world hates you. If you don’t love, you remain in death. Love with actions and in truth. We know what love is because Christ died for us out of love. We ought to do the same for our brothers and sisters.

The command: to believe in God’s Son and to love one another as he commanded us. He who keeps God’s commands lives in God, and we receive from him anything we ask.

Summary of 1 John 4

Beware of false prophets. Those who deny Jesus is not from God is the spirit of the antichrist. We are from God.

Let us love one another. Since God loved us enough to send his Son to die for our sins, we should love one another. God lives in us and his love is complete in us if we love others.

We have the Holy Spirit sent by God to live in us. If we acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God, God lives in us.

Jesus has come and given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. When we are in Christ, we are in him.

Questions for 1 John 2:3-5:21

1 ) Love comes from God, and if you love others, you’ve been born of God and know him. God loved us enough to send his only Son so that we might live through him. We should love one another, and if we do, God lives in us and makes us complete. God has given us the Spirit and his Son. Love is from God, and it gives us the power to love others.

2 ) This is a hard one. Unsure what evidence I see. It’s always a challenge to self-evaluate. I hope I love others. I’m not very assured, really.

Conclusions to WordGo Study of 1 John 2:3-5:21

We must depend on Jesus and let His life define and empower us. Sinful people can know God through his gift of Christ to us. Then we can have fellowship with God.

John offers us five tests of true fellowship with God:

  1. Test of Obedience (2:3-17)
  2. Test of Perseverance (2:18-29)
  3. Test of Moral Purity (3:1-4:6)
  4. Test of Love (4:7-21)
  5. Test of Faith (5:1-21)

Knowing God transforms us and the way we live, as we turn from sin. God’s grace allows us to not sin. When we are sinful, the Holy Spirit corrects us, and we repent. We vow to be more like Christ.

The Holy Spirit lives in you and changes you.

Know that you do indeed know God.

Great overview of what we’ll study this week! Themes: God loves us; therefore, we love others. As we love, we turn from sin.

7 Summer Bible Studies You Should Know

Hey all!

If you are like me, you may be struggling with what to study this coming summer when BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) takes a break. It’s important to always be in the Word of God, but it can be challenging to do so.

Here are some suggested summer Bible studies you can try, or see if your local church is doing any to join.

  1. The Faithful by Priscilla Shirer, Kelly Minter, Beth Moore, and more
  2. The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
  3. Seamless by Angie Smith (check out the teen girl’s version, too)
  4. Read throught the book of Proverbs
  5. Pursuing Holiness: Applications from the Book of James by Philip Nation
  6. Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny by Tony Evans
  7. 30-Day Challenges by Nancy Leigh Demoss

I will be using WordGo’s Bible studies and posting my answers, similar to what I did last year. These will begin sometime in June and run through the middle of August. The great thing about these summer Bible studies is that they are short, so they aren’t a big time commitment.

It doesn’t matter which summer Bible study you choose; all that matters is that you pick one.

Have a great summer everyone!

BSF Summer Bible Studies

For many of us, when BSF ends and takes a summer break, we are left scrambling for some way to stay in His word. Without an official study, this can be incredibly challenging for many, and sometimes, Bibles can go unopened all summer until Bible Study Fellowship begins again in the fall.

BSF is now offering summer bible studies for those who want to stay in His word over the summer. This is available via their app, WordGo. You simply go to your PlayStore and download this free app. Once downloaded, you’ll be able to pick a course that lasts anywhere from two weeks to six weeks. These are manageable time slots for many.

These BSF studies of the Bible include questions, so you can dig deeper in God’s Word. You can watch BSF’s explanation HERE

BSF encourages you to do these together. However, in today’s world, going it alone is okay, too. Plus, this may be easier for some who prefer to study their Bibles early in the morning or late at night.

I plan on picking one of these and posting my answers here. I am hoping some of you will at least follow along and maybe chime in the comments when prompted. Or, just read my summeries when you have a bit of time.

There’s a poll on the sidebar. I’d like your input for which study we start with. I plan on beginning this early to mid-June. I will announce that here on my blog.
