Bible Study Questions – August 26

In Family Training Hour Questions, The Pastor's Blog on August 26, 2009 at 9:08 PM

We had another great bible study tonight at Liberty Lighthouse Church of God. There was some very good discussion, and we learned some new things, too. It’s good to see people getting involved in these studies; everyone has something to add and no one knows it all. We can certainly learn from each other.

The questions we discussed tonight were not particularly difficult, but they did gender lots of interaction. I really like to dig into the background to get details. It’s important to read more than just the answer so we can determine why we’re there in the first place.

Ready? Here are the questions:

  1. What is our reward when we keep our mind stayed on the Lord?
  2. Where is the story of a man lame for 38 years?
  3. Where is the tongue compared to a fire?

Okay, let’s put up the answers. Please don’t hold back answering because someone else did. You might have more to add to the discussion or might look at it from a different angle.

  1. Dear friend,

    Thank you for visiting my recent blog post and leaving such encouraging comments.


  2. my feeble attempt at answering the 3 questions:

    1. eternal life would be the greatest reward…spending eternity with the Father. the obvious reward in keeping our mind stayed on the Lord is a sound mind. “pastor, this would explain a lot where i’m concerned…LOL”

    2. i know it’s not hezekiah 4:14…ashamed yet not ashamed to admit…i do not know. would the lame person be naaman…did i spell that right???

    3. again…it’s not hezekiah 4:14…the tooter verse…please forgive the ignorance of the Bible. it’s been a long time since i had a wonderful pastor to lead this lost sheep.

  3. Brother Ron,
    The cripple at Bethesda’s Pool met Jesus. He, like me, was waiting for someone else to help him in the pool when all he needed was Jesus. What is the most pointed to me is that he was made whole because of his faith. As the woman with the issue of blood. She KNEW in her heart that if she could just touch his garment, she would be healed. And once again, HE said, “Your faith has made you whole”. Oh, but for just a fraction of that kind of faith with no hesitation and no question.
    I didn’t answer your question but once more Christ has answered mine. Thank you.

    • Larry, it’s great seeing you here on this blog. Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comments. Thirty-eight years is a long time to be in need like the man in question was. There is help when we put our faith in God.

  4. Pastor Ron,
    What do you think of this:

    A blog post I read shares how the war veterans are being “encouraged” to consider ending their lives.

    So sad, what is happening to America.


    • Lidia,
      I didn’t read the whole article, but did scan it. Oh, my! I am a veteran, too, and don’t like the thought of what some are encouraged to do. How sad!

  5. Jas:3:6: And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

    Joh:5:5: And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

    Isa:26:3: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

    • Samuel,
      Thank you for dropping by and taking part in our weekly Bible exercise. My people really enjoy this format and have really picked up their studying quite a bit. You are always welcome to drop in.
