Family Devotional Guide - 12/8/19
Scripture: Philippians 1:9; 1 Timothy 4:16
Discussion: In Sunday’s message, Bro. Tom focused on three areas that are requirements for righteousness. The first is devotion. If you’re going to live a righteous life in Christ Jesus, you must be devoted both in love and in growth in your faith. How have you seen the Lord growing you? Are there any areas in which you see your devotion to the Lord is lacking? What will you do about what God is leading you to change in your life?

Discussion: The 2nd area from the sermon is doctrine. Where do you get your beliefs? Are you careful to follow Scripture alone? What is your initial reaction when encountering truth from God’s Word that might go against what you have believed? What should your reaction be?
