背诵经文

约翰一书 5:1


开始祷告(5-10分钟)


团队建造(5分钟)


课堂起头(10分钟)


一般讨论:

• 如果有人跟随你三年,那个人会发现你的缺点吗?

• 你的跟随者会发现什么缺点?

• 为什么约翰没有发现耶稣有任何缺点?


当我们进入约翰书的最后一章时,我们将面对一位认识耶稣的使徒传递的真理。约翰在他生命的尽头,与他亲爱的孩子(基督信徒的下一代)交谈。他所说的话只是为了澄清主耶稣的信息,还有什么人比主最好的朋友更知道祂的信息呢?(约翰是耶稣所爱的人。)


深入学习(15分钟)


一般讨论:

• 如果你要去外国传讲福音,你会强调什么?


++++++++

实际上,有关于美国传教士去非洲的故事,他们带着食物、衣物、圣经和钱财前往。在抵达后,传教士收到当地牧师奇怪的请求。他们说:“请带走你们的物质财富,把它们带回你们的故乡。我们需要的只是耶稣,其他都可以带走。”

++++++++


• 无论身处哪个国家,基督徒的标志是什么?


今天的课程将引导我们进入每个基督徒都应该拥有的三个基本特征:信,爱和顺服。我们今天将研读约翰一书中的一段,这一段在我们当前的文化氛围中有很多话要说。在这一段中,约翰将结束他的书信。他重申了贯穿全书的三个重要测试,并展示了它们之间紧密的联系。约翰所阐述的三个测试分别是信、爱和顺服。


英国著名基督徒和福音运动领袖约翰·斯托特总结约翰的这三个论点如下:“我们不能相信耶稣基督而不爱神和祂的子民(约翰一书5:1-2a);我们不能爱神而不遵守祂的命令还能胜过世界(约翰一书5:2b-4a);我们不能胜过世界同时又不相信耶稣基督(约翰一书5:4b-5)。"


读 约翰一书5:1-5

问题讨论:

1.这些经文中,约翰说从神生的特征是什么?(信,爱和顺服)

2.根据第1节,一个真正的基督徒相信什么?(耶稣是出于神的,每个爱神的人也爱祂的子民)

3.根据第2节,你如何知道自己相信?(你爱神的子民,爱神,并遵行祂的诫命)

4.你应该爱什么?(神和祂的儿子)

5.根据第3节,你如何知道是否爱神?(你是否遵守神的诫命)


换个角度思考,神是王,祂的国度是关乎爱的。如果神(王)这样说,我们就应该去做。


一般讨论:

1.信耶稣是什么样的?(爱,顺服,服事)

2.不信是什么样的?(叛逆,缺乏爱,自私。)

3.相信耶稣是基督,最难的是什么?

4.在过去的一个月/一年里,你的信仰有了怎样的改变?


跟随耶稣的第二个方面在于我们对他人的爱。


一般讨论:

1.爱他人,最难的是什么?

2.我们能在多大程度上像神一样去爱他人?


如果我们说我们爱神,那么我们对他人的爱应该是显明的。作为基督徒,我们的心改变了,我们可以为他人舍己。


一般讨论:

1. 跟随耶稣的第三个特征是什么?(顺服)

2. 作为基督徒,我们有什么诫命要遵守?

3. 顺服如何彰显了爱和信?


应用(15分钟)


在白板上绘制以下图表。



问题讨论:

1.如果你有爱和信,但没有顺服,会得到什么?(没有顺服的爱和信是虚伪的)

2.如果你有顺服和信,但没有爱,会发生什么?(没有爱的信和顺服只是一堆宗教噪音。哥林多前书13:1-3)

3.如果有顺服和爱,但没有信呢?(没有信的爱和顺服根本就不是信仰)

4.这些组合是否可能发生?

5.当这三者都不是你生活中积极的部分时,会有什么结果?

6.你有过类似的经历吗?


正如约翰一书5所说,我们需要努力朝着这三个方向努力,以按照神的意愿,对福音作出回应。


结束祷告(2分钟)

让孩子们站成一个大圈。手拉手,开始祷告。因为这一章着重于真实的信仰,一个好的祷告重点是求神加强我们的信、爱和顺服。

1 John

Lesson 5: The Marks of a Believer

LESSON OBJECTIVES

Goals

1. To give students an overview of 1 John 2. To help students understand that there is a way to live in response to the Gospel 3. To inspire students to live in obedience to Jesus born out of their love for Him

Topics

Believing, Love, Obedience, Serving

Scripture Memorization

1 John 5:1

OPENING PRAYER (5 to 10 minutes)

GROUP BUILDING (10 minutes)

How Well Do You Know Me? (Activity) Click here

GETTING STARTED (10 minutes)

General Discussion: • If someone followed you around for 3 years, do you think that person would find flaws in you? • What kind of flaws would your follower find? • Why don’t you think John found any flaws in Jesus?

As we enter into the last chapter of John’s letter, we are going to be confronted with truth from a disciple that personally knew Jesus. John is at the end of his life when he speaks to his dear children (the next generation of Christ-followers). The words that he speaks are simply to help clear up the message of Jesus, and what better person would know Jesus’ message than His best friend? (The one whom Jesus loved.)

DIGGING IN (15 minutes)

General Discussion: • If you were going to a foreign country to preach the Gospel, what elements would you make sure the people received?

There are actually stories of U.S. missionaries that have gone to Africa armed with food, clothing, Bibles, and money. Upon arriving in the foreign country, the missionaries were greeted by local pastors with a strange request. They said, “Please take all your material possessions and send them back to your homeland. Our people need Jesus and only Him, you can take back everything else.”

• What is the mark for every Christian no matter which country he or she lives in? Today’s lesson leads us into three essential areas that every Christian should possess: belief, love, and obedience. We are going to look at a section of 1 John today that has a lot to say about our current cultural climate. In this section, John is bringing his letter to a close. He reiterates the three important tests given throughout the letter and shows just how intricately they are connected to each other. The three tests that John has expounded have been the tests of belief, love, and obedience.


John Stott, a noted English Christian and leader of the evangelical movement, summarized these three arguments of John’s in this way, “We cannot believe in Jesus Christ without loving the Father and His children (1 John 5:1-2a); we cannot love the Father without obeying His commands and overcoming the world (1 John 5:2b-4a); and we cannot overcome the world without believing in Jesus Christ (1 John 5:4b-5).”

Read 1 John 5:1-5

Discussion Questions: 1. In these passages, what criteria does John give for being born of God? (Belief, love, and obedience.) 2. According to verse 1, a true Christian believes what? (That Jesus is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves His children as well.) 3. How can you know you believe, according to verse 2? (You love the children of God, love God, and carry out His commands.) 4. What are you supposed to love? (God and His Son.) 5. According to verse 3, how do you know if you love God? (You keep His commands.)

Another way of thinking about this is that God is King. His Kingdom is about love. If God (the King) says it, we should do it.


General Discussion: 1 What does belief in Jesus look like? (Loving, obedience, serving.) 2. What are elements of disbelief? (Rebellion, lack of love, selfishness.) 3. What is the hardest thing about believing in Jesus as the Christ? 4. How has your belief been shaped over the last month/year? The second aspect of following Jesus is in our love of others.


General Discussion: 1. What is the hardest thing about loving others? 2. To what degree is it possible for us to love others the way God does? If we claim to love God, it should be evident in our love for others. As Christians, our hearts are changed and we lay down our lives for others.


General Discussion: 1. What is the third aspect of following Jesus? (Obedience.) 2. What are some of the commands that we are given as Christians? 3. How does obedience display love and loyalty?

MAKING IT REAL (15 minutes)

Draw the following diagram on the whiteboard.


Discussion Questions: 1. What do you get if you have love and belief, but no obedience? (Love and belief without obedience is hypocrisy.) 2. What happens if you have obedience and belief, but no love? (Belief and obedience without love is just a bunch of religious noise. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3) 3. What about obedience and love, but no belief? (Love and obedience without belief is not a faith at all.) 4. Are these combinations even possible? 5. What is the result when all three are not an active part of your life? 6. Have you ever experienced this?

As 1 John 5 says, we really need to strive toward all three to live in response to the Gospel the way God intends us to.

CLOSING PRAYER (2 minutes)

Have the group make a large circle. Hold hands around the circle and begin praying. Since this chapter focuses on real faith, a good prayer focus would be to ask God to stretch our belief, love, and obedience.
