How to Build Your Spiritual House Bible Study Discussion Group

Lesson 1:  Matthew 5-7 -  As we prepare for our study, Building your Spiritual House, read Matthew 5 through 7 from your bible. Read it everyday until our Study begins on September, 26. Zoom information will follow.


Lesson 2:  Read 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Hosea 4:6 -  Part of studying God's word is understanding that scripture is there to benefit us. Let's discuss Hosea's words, "My people perish for lack of knowledge" and gain knowledge and understanding. Did you know that your body is the Temple of God? That is where the Holy Spirit lives. That is why we should glorify God in our body, and in our spirit.


Lesson 3:  Read Philippians 4:13 -  Do you know that you can do everything that God intends for you to do? When you understand that you have the power to do God's will, you will be able to create a Godly life and build the spiritual house that you imagine. Use the discussion board to share your thoughts on this subject.


Lesson 4:  Read Exodus 35:21 -  It is so important we continue with the will and enthusiasm for completing the job of building our spiritual house to God. Let's talk about how we can encourage one another.


Lesson 5:  Read Corinthians 6:14-18 -  How can we assure that we are building our spiritual house in the right neighborhood? Let's talk about building in the right environment.


Lesson 6:  Read Ephesians 2:19-22 -  How do we build a Sound foundation?  What are the spiritual specifications for building our spiritual house? Let's discuss.


Lesson 7:  Read Luke 14:27-30 -  Everyone knows that a good architect, before they begin to build, will take the time to count the cost. What is it going to cost to build your spiritual house? Let's take an assessment.


Lesson 8:  Read 2 Timothy 2:19-23 -  A profitable spiritual builder builds on a sound foundation of godly truth, knowledge, understanding and wisdom. Let's talk about this.


Lesson 9:  Read 2 Timothy 1:13-14, Ephesians 2:19-22 -  What are some of our most important tools of the trade as a quality Christian builder? Let's discuss.


Lesson 10:  Read 1 Corinthians 3:10-17 -  When it is all said and done, we must take heed to how we build. Everyone’s spiritual house is going to be tested and tried by fire right down to the depths of its foundations. So, doesn’t it behoove every one of us to take heed how we build our spiritual house? Let's discuss.


Lesson 11:  Building your spiritual house -  Due Date & Time: Sunday, June 20, 2021 03:00

What I want you to do is write the biblical scripture on your painted popsicle stick. This should represent the life you want in Christ.

Then use the sticks to build your house. You can also drop messages inside your house as well.

The Book of James Discussion Group 

Lesson 1: Read James Chapter 1

Lesson 2:  Trials and Tribulations -  We have all been on this rollercoaster ride called The Year 2020. Knowing how James describes the benefits of our trials and tribulations, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN THROUGH THIS YEAR THAT YOU ARE BETTER FOR? How have you grown from your struggle?

Lesson 3Read James Chapter 2

Lesson 4:  Good Deeds -  "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished." Have you heard of this popular phrase? No, it's not from the bible, but people seem to remember it just the same. James begs us to understand that believing is not enough when it comes to faith. We have to actually do something to back that faith up. 1) DO YOU FEEL HESITANT TO DO A GOOD DEED BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE THE IDIOM ABOUT IT NOT GOING UNPUNISHED? WHY OR WHY NOT? 2) IS THERE A GOOD DEED THAT YOU'RE PROUD OF THAT YOU FELT COMPELLED TO DO WHEN A SITUATION AROSE? DESCRIBE. 3) WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU BELIEVE STRONGLY IN THAT YOU CAN PROVE WITH YOUR ACTIONS?

Lesson 5:  Read James Chapter 3

Lesson 6:  Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil -  James devotes an entire chapter to controlling the tongue. When we consider the words of Jesus in Matthew 12:34 we see why the tongue is given such sizeable consideration. Jesus said, "You brood of snakes! How can you who are evil say anything good? For a man's heart determines his speech." Please understand that how we handle our tongue is a great indicator of our hearts before God. It is our words that give us away. Especially when we're angry! Oh how the colorful words fly then! Worldly wisdom will lead to a tongue infused with bitterness that will show itself through bragging and a denial of truth. Godly wisdom will lead to pure and peaceable speech. DESCRIBE THE HEART WITHIN YOU THAT YOU WANT GOD TO KNOW AND THEN DESCRIBE THE KIND OF SPEECH YOU SHOULD BE SURE TO USE SO THAT THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO.

Lesson 7:  MERRY CHRISTMAS! It's the most wonderful time of the year! A season to usher in the blessings of peace, the beauty of hope, the spirit of love, and the comfort of faith. James 3:18, NLT says: "And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness." In this passage, James has been describing the difference between worldly wisdom and godly wisdom. Worldly wisdom encourages us to be selfish and greedy, and to put our own interests before the needs of others. Godly wisdom, on the other hand, leads to peace, mercy, and sincerity. James concludes his thought from the previous verse with beautiful imagery. He wants us to imagine fields full and ready to harvest. The crop of this field is righteousness, goodness, and everything those who belong to God would hope to see in the world. And how did it get there? The crop was planted by those who make peace. James elevates the role of peacemakers: ones committed to living peacefully in full confidence that God is providing for them. These are believers who know God is meeting every need, giving many good gifts. Such people don't feel the need to fight against others for what they need. Their peace-loving lifestyles lead to fields of righteous choices. SOMETIMES HOLIDAY TIME WHEN FAMILIES COME TOGETHER ARE THE OPPOSITE OF PEACE! HOWEVER, IT IS UP TO YOU TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE, BEING THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD. PLEASE SHARE HOW YOU INTEND TO SPREAD LOVE AND KEEP THE PEACE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WITHIN AND WITHOUT YOUR HOUSEHOLD. Wishing you all a safe and blessed Christmas!
