- Take a moment to diagnose your spiritual condition using the questions from the sermon notes. How can you turn your attention, affections, and direction more towards Christ in your daily life? What is currently capturing your attention, affections, and direction?
- Do you see personal evidence of knowing God through obedience, bearing his likeness, and reflecting God’s love? What are some practical ways that you can obey, bear His likeness, and reflect His love?
- In verse 16, John describes all that is in the world as “the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and pride of life.” What does this mean? Can you think of examples in your own life?
