Pastor Brent looks at 1 John to see the important role obedience plays in our ability to truly know and experience God.
- Are you more compliant or strong-willed? How easy is it for you to obey when someone asks (or requires) something of you? Why do you think this is?
- How have you tried to substitute other things, like religious activity or legalism for obedience to God?
- Is God calling you to obedience in some area of your life? If so, what area and what is one tangible action you can do this week to move toward obedience in that area?
