THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE

Scripture Reading: Luke 6:17-40.

Memory Verse: Luke 6:19.

  1. From what cities were the people gathered together? Luke 6:17.

NOTE:  They had come from a distance of about 50 miles or more, which was a great effort since in those days walking was the main way of travel.

  1. What is said about all the sick in that great multitude? Luke 6:18,19.
  2. In what way did the Savior prepare Himself for this great gathering? Luke 6:12.
  3. After spending the night in prayer, with what was His body charged? Luke 6:19.
  4. Was the apostle Paul also possessed with this magnetic, healing virtue? Acts 19:11,12.

  7. We being enriched by Him in knowledge and speech, what will be the result? 2 Corinthians 8:7-14.

NOTE:  It is Satan who misleads people in their conversation, and causes them to carry a reproach about someone. When you tell anything that is not true about a person, you are guilty of reproach (Psalms 15:1-3.) When enriched by the master, seeking for the Holy Spirit, and separating ourselves from evil talkers, we can then be partakers of the divine nature and be filled with heavenly virtue.
