July 6th - Lesson 6 - Glorify God with Your Body
Devotional Reading: Ephesians 4:7-16
Background Scripture: 1 Corinthians 6:12-7:40
Printed Text: 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
Key Verse: Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? - 1 Corinthians 6:19
Central Thought: We were brought at a great price and God’s Holy Spirit lives in us. Let’s honor God with our bodies in every way.
Thought to Remember: What we do with our bodies affects our spiritual well-being.
July 13th - Lesson 7 - Exercise Freedom with Caution
Devotional Reading: Romans 14:7-12
Background Scripture: 1 Corinthians 8, 9
Printed Text: 1 Corinthians 8
Key Verse: But take heed lest by any means this liberty or yours become a stumbling block to them that are weak. - 1 Corinthians 8:9
Central Thought: Paul applies Jesus’ command to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” A brother’s or sister’s relationship with the Lord is always more important than the exercise of our own rights and freedoms in Christ.
Thought to Remember: Be a building block, not a stumbling block.
July 20th - Lesson 8 - Overcome Temptation
Devotional Reading: Hebrews 3:7-14
Background Scripture: 1 Corinthians 10:1-22
Printed Text: 1 Corinthians 10:6-22
Key Verse: There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. - 1 Corintians 10:13
Central Thought: Often the best way to overcome temptation is to avoid it altogether. Yet when we are tempted, God will not abandon us and will give us strength to resist and escape.
Thought to Remember: Falling to temptation is not inevitable. God always provides a way out.
June 27th - Lesson 9 - Seek the Good of Others
Devotional Reading: Titus 3:8-14
Background Scripture: 1 Corinthians 14:13-26
Printed Text: 1 Corinthians 14:13-26
Key Verse: How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.— 1 Corinthians 14: 26
Central Thought: Paul responded to a problem in the church at Corinth with instructions about the purpose of speaking in tongues: to convince nonbelievers of the truth of the gospel and to edify or build up the church.
Thought to Remember: Always ask, “Does it edify?”.
