Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

1 Timothy 1:4-6

4 Don’t let them waste their time in endless discussion of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don’t help people live a life of faith in God.

5 The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. 6 But some people have missed this whole point. They have turned away from these things and spend their time in meaningless discussions.

2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.


Q: Jesus tells us in Matthew 28 to obey and then teach others to do the same. Do you think that it is possible to obey all of His commands? Do you study his commands in order to learn them? Do you try to stay ignorant of them so that you don’t feel like you are disobeying?

Q: According to 1 Timothy 1:4-6, the point of Jesus’ teaching was to show us that we are to live for God. Is living for God the point of your life? Do you love him in a way that makes you want to give him all aspects of your life?

Q: 2 Timothy tells us that all scripture is inspired by God. Why does it say that all scripture is useful? Do you allow scripture to teach you in this way? How can you learn to obey if you don’t allow scripture to teach? Are you challenging yourself to memorize scriptures in order to learn?
