Family Devotional Guide - 6/20/21

Day 1

  • Scripture: 1 John 2:1

  • Discussion: One of the reasons that the apostle John wrote the book of 1st John was so that believers might live in holiness and purity (1 John 2:1—“so that you may not sin”). Spend some time searching the book of 1st John for passages that would help us not to sin. Based on what you find, what practical changes can you make in your life to walk in greater holiness?

Day 2

  • Scripture: 1 John 2:1

  • Discussion: John refers to Jesus as our advocate. Discuss the significance of having Christ as our advocate. Why is it important to understand that lost people do not have Christ as their advocate? How might this impact both our understanding of our security in Christ as well as the need for urgency in winning the lost to the Lord Jesus Christ?

Day 3

  • Scripture: 1 John 2:2; Ephesians 2:14

  • Discussion: Christ is our advocate, and He is also our propitiation (1 John 2:2). Propitiation means that Christ appeased God’s wrath and brought the peace that restored us to a right relationship with God. This connects well with Paul’s words in Ephesians 2:14, “He himself is our peace.” Spend some time discussing the implications of Christ being “our peace” and take a moment to express gratitude to the Lord for the shed blood of Jesus by which we have been saved.
