Chapter Five, Lesson One
GOD'S GIFT OF SOBRIETY Page 4
V. 4 ** The individuals within Israel who made this covenant with Satan are in total darkness - they do not have a clue about what God is going to do in His judgement of sin. Is that also true about the brethren?
** Will we be caught off guard by this "thief"?
V. 5 ** Why is that, how does Paul describe us?
** Were we ever of the darkness?
** What have we become through our faith in Christ?
** How do you know that Paul is serious about our proper understanding, relative to which side of the battle we belong?
V. 6 ** Since we are very different from the world (like night and day) what does Paul want us to avoid?
** What does that mean?
** If we are not to be of the darkness, not to be lazy or unprepared - what does Paul want us to be?
