Lesson for January 7, 2017.
PROOF OF REGENERATION
Scripture Reading: 1 John 3.
Memory Verses: 1 John 4:7,8.
1. What was said of the Corinthian believers that is true of us today? 2 Corinthians
3:2.
NOTE: Christianity in its true form cannot be hidden from view. It is equally true that the lack of it cannot be concealed by any professing man or woman. We must not only carry the name of Christian, we must strive to
be all that the title implies.
2. By what age-old rule are we still being measured? Matthew 7:20.

NOTE: This is about the only verse some Bible critics seem to have learned. Nevertheless it is true that we should produce fruit to His glory. It is a serious thing to lay claim to another’s name and attempt to perpetuate the characteristics of that individual.
3. What are two marks of regeneration? 1 John 5:1-3.
NOTE: Moffatt renders this: “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and everyone who loves the Father loves the sons born of Him. This is how we are sure that we love God’s children, by loving God and obeying His commands.”
4. How is this stated elsewhere? John 13:34,35.
NOTE: Reversing the logic Christ used in the 35th verse would it not follow that if brotherly love did not exist between one another we would not be His disciples?
5. What is the fulfilling of the law? Romans 13:1-13.
6. How completely must we be separated from the world? John 17:14.
7. When fully surrendered to God, what will be our experience? 1 John 3:9.
8. How could we make our Christian life more pleasant and profitable? 2 Corinthians 6:14.
NOTE: This no doubt includes the marriage question but it is not restricted to it. Many Christians have been greatly hindered in their missionary work, and in keeping the Sabbath as a result of being “unequally yoked together” in business enterprises.
9. How else will our lives show that we have been born again? Galatians 5:24-26.
10. In the final analysis what will we be doing? 1 John 3:24.
