"THE CHOSEN "

A Bible Study

- Lesson 3 -

Preface to Lesson 3

The Bible is not a textbook.  It is God's Breath, God's Voice calling to you.  It is The Portal into His glorious, yet mysterious, Kingdom.  This Kingdom is our Promised Land.  A place of restoration and the salvation of our lives now and our souls for all eternity, and it is more real than the earth you stand upon.

1 Peter 1:6  "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,

WHY?

7  so that the tested genuineness of your faith—which is more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

 

WHAT?

8  Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,

WHY?

 

9  for obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

1 Peter 1:6  "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,

1.  You expect me to rejoice while I am being "grieved by various trials"?  What is the point of that and what kind of mystery is this? 

 

 

v6  "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,

 

2.  How can I "rejoice" while enduring trials?  Isn't that a bit crazy?  And, is that even possible?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

​​3.  If God is such a loving God, why does he allow us to suffer fiery trials?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7  so that the genuineness of your faith is tested (which is more precious than gold, which perishes when it is tested by fire) may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

4.  So, I must suffer to prove my faith?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8  Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,

 

5.  What is the significance of loving and believing in someone you have not seen?  Why would loving and believing Jesus bring with inexpressible joy filled with glory?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9  for obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

 

8.  What is the point of all of this?  What does it mean that "the outcome of my faith is the salvation of my soul"?
