Discipleship Matters – Making a commitment to follow Jesus

Understanding the Message of the Bible:
What gives you confidence that you are going to heaven? How do you know you have eternal life?

Dig Into the Bible:
1 John 5:11-13,
11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may [continue to] believe in the name of the Son of God.

Have you ever been in court? During a trial testimony is given and the expectation is that the testimony is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. The Word of God is the testimony about eternal life, what it is, and how it is received.

Discover what the Bible says by answering the following questions:
1. In this verse who gives us eternal life?
2. How does He give us eternal life?
3. Where is this eternal life?
4. How did it get into the Son?
5. What happens if we have the Son?
6. What happens if we don’t have the Son?
7. What does one have to do to get the Son?

Apply God’s Word:
8. Describe how you invite the Son of God (JESUS) into your life?
9. Where is the Son of God now?
10. In verse 13 what does God want for us as a result of your belief?
11. How are you feeling now about your decision to follow Christ?
12. What steps can you take to strengthen your faith?
13. How will memorizing this verse be a strength to your faith?

Digging Deeper:
1. What is the most important part of this lesson to you?
2. How do you see applying aspects of this lesson to your life?
3. When do you feel would be the best time to make that application?
4. What do you hear the Lord speaking to you about this right now?
