Challenge 1:

Recall God’s Love

Challenge: Take some time alone this week to journal what God’s love means to you, and how it has changed your life. Recall when you became a Christian and how God’s love has transformed your life since you accepted Christ as your Savior. Think about Christ’s sacrifice, and consider all the times God has displayed His love for you. This will help you to reflect God’s love, which we so often take for granted.

Scripture: Romans 8:37-39

Challenge 2:

Return Your Love

Challenge: Compose a love letter to God expressing gratitude for your salvation. Take some time this week to write a letter to your Lord and Savior and thank Him for all He has done for you. Make a list of all the things you’re grateful for and thank Him for them. Thank Him for saving you from an eternity of condemnation and for accepting you into His family. Praise Him for His greatness. This will be a good reminder to count all the blessings God has given you.

Scripture: Psalm 118

Challenge 3:

Express God’s Love

Challenge: This week, in your small group, Sunday school, or even on your Facebook page, find ways to tell others what God’s love has done for you. Share your testimony with at least one person, with more if you can, and express your thankfulness for God’s love. This will give you practice in sharing your testimony with others in the future.

Scripture: Philemon 1:6

Challenge 4:

Share God’s Love

Challenge: Think of someone in your life that is not a Christian, and seek an opportunity to share your faith with them. It can be a co-worker, a friend, or a relative. Take some time this week to talk to them about your faith and tell them about God’s everlasting love. Prepare for that opportunity by praying God will give you the words to say and that you will be an effective channel of His love.

Scripture: Psalm 96:2-4

Challenge 5:

The Power of Love Learned

Challenge: In the book of 1 Corinthians, Paul reprimands the church members for valuing other gifts over love. While reading through the chapter, journal your thoughts on how effective you are as a 1 Corinthians 13 Christian. Write down the importance of love in God’s eyes, and why Paul describes love as the greatest gift. Compare this lesson to your own life. Consider where love is on your list of priorities.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13

Challenge 6:

The Power of Love Prayed

Challenge: Based on what you’ve learned about yourself last week as a 1 Corinthians 13 Christian, compose a prayer written to consecrate yourself to be more loving to others. Discover what areas in your life may need improvement in order to become a Christian who reflects God’s love fully. Pray for guidance in learning to be more like Christ, and consider putting love at the top of your list of priorities.

Scripture: John 13:35

Challenge 7:

The Power of Love Expressed

Challenge: This week, think of someone that is important to you—someone you may have failed to fully express your love and appreciation to. Let them know how much they mean to you—you can do this in person, with a letter, through an email, etc. Let them know how much you care about them and let them know that you are praying for them. While doing this, you can practice praying for those in your life that you might occasionally take for granted—and you can also let them know you love them.

Scripture: 1 John 4:7

Challenge 8:

The Power of Love Demonstrated

Challenge: The Bible constantly talks about sacrificial love. This week, seek an opportunity to gather friends and family together to help someone in need. Practice being selfless, and display God’s love by helping someone who is in need. Get a group to volunteer at a homeless shelter, visit the elderly, help someone in your church in need—the opportunities are endless. Share God’s love with others through your works. In doing this, you will learn to put others first just as Christ did. Remember: “You might be the only Bible some people read.”

Scripture: Isaiah 58:10

Who I Am In Christ
Fold-Out Booklet

What Exactly is a "New Creation"?

When you believe in Jesus Christ, you become a new creation. But what exactly does that mean? And what does that look like?

Who I Am in Christ reminds us what God has done through His Son, Jesus Christ, and includes a list of God’s new names for you.

It is excellent for personal study, or for group use - adult Sunday school classes, Bible studies, discipleship and mentoring, biblical and pastoral counseling, recovery/addiction groups, hospital and hospice work.

The foldout booklet fits inside most Bibles, contains 14 pages, measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches and unfolds to 38 inches long.

The Final Priority--Pursue Love (Pt. 2)

The Bible lists the kinds of fruit that should be evident in a believer’s life. How can you make them a reality in your life? One word holds the key. Dr. David Jeremiah focuses his message on obedience. Without it, love and the other fruits of the Spirit remain just words on paper.

Go Deeper: study Questions for your small group - 1 of 8

Previous

List the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and discuss their correlation with the characteristics of love in 1 Corinthians 13:

  1. What is the human role in manifesting love in our lives? (1 Corinthians 13)
  2. What is the divine role in manifesting love in our lives? (Galatians 5:22-23)
  3. How do we love in obedience to the Lord?
  4. If we view loving others as a commandment from God (John 15:12) instead of a suggestion, how will that change the way we treat people?
  5. Discuss the difference between the definition of our love in our culture and the kind of love God commands us to have.

What was the “new commandment” Jesus gave His disciples in John 13:34?

  1. Why did He single out this one behavior? Of what is love the primary evidence? (John 13:35)
  2. How “new” was this commandment? (Leviticus 19:18) Was it the commandment that was new, or the way it was to be used as a marker for the community of Jesus’ disciples?

What impact does lack of love have in terms of identifying the Christian community?

How can your group work on reflecting God’s love to those in the community around you?

What is the measure for how we are to love one another? (John 13:34) Expand on ways in which we can do that.

Love Lost (Our Missing Identity)

Love Lost (Our Missing Identity)

March Edition of Turning Points Magazine & Devotional

Love is manifestation of the life of Christ in us. It is that part of our Christian life that points others to the Christ we follow. It is part of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. It is no surprise that the apostle Paul named love as the greatest virtue of all. In fact, he chastised the Corinthian church for trying to act like Christians without love. Love is the oil of the Spirit that gives all we do for Christ a fragrant aroma that draws people to Him.

This free download of the March Turning Points Magazine will draw your attention to the virtue that is the greatest of them all: love. May we display the love of God so as to draw people to the God of love.
