1. Who makes us aware of our spiritual condition?1 John 4:13, NKJV- “By this we know that we (a)_____ in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His (b)______.” The Holy Spirit is the one who reveals to us our true condition, whether we are right with God, or whether we have fallen short (John 16: 8-11). In fact, we cannot live the Christian life if we have not given control of our lives to the Spirit (Acts 5:32).

2. On whom should we focus, if we are to remain faithful?
1 John 2: 6, NKJV- “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to (a)_____ just as (b)_____ walked.” Jesus is our supreme example. When we are not sure what we must do, we must ask the question, what does Jesus want? Or, what would He do if He were in my place? If we are to be His followers, then we must let Him lead.

 3. How important is prayer in maintaining the Christian walk?
 Mark 1:35, NKJV – “Now in the morning, having risen a (a)_____ while before daylight, He went out and departed to a (b)_______ place; and there He prayed.” Jesus spent quality time in prayer, because He needed to commune with His Father to gain strength for His daily ministry. Could frail, sinful mortals such as we are, overcome with little or no prayer? ...“pray without (c)___________” 1Thess. 5:17, NKJV.

4. How does regular Bible study reinforce the believer’s relationship with the Lord?
 Psalm 119:105, NKJV- “Your word is a (a)____ to my feet And a light to my (b)_____.” Peter urges that we should “grow in the grace and (c)__________ of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18, NKJV. David said: “Your (d)_____ I have hidden in my heart, That I might not (e)____ against You!” Psalms 119:11, NKJV. Feeding on the Word of God lifts the mind. It draws our focus away from the cares that capture the best of our attention. It aids in rearranging our priorities. The study of its lofty themes expands the mind and cultivates a taste for sublime and holy issues. It transports the seeker for truth to the unseen things that are more real than the things that are seen.

5. How important is it for the believer to share his faith?
Matthew 28:19-20, NKJV- "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am (a)____(b) ____ always, even to the (c)_____ of the age." The call to witness is a command as explicit as “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13, KJV). God calls his followers “witnesses” (Acts 1:8).  The Lord saves us to save others. Love is excited about sharing the gifts and blessings one has been privileged to receive. However, sharing your faith also helps you to focus personally on Christ and His saving truth. The sharing that you do serves to bless you and reinforce your faith. The promise of Matt. 28:19, 20 is that as you diligently witness and teach the gospel, God’s presence will abide with you always.

I choose to surrender all to Jesus. I choose to follow Him to baptism and beyond. By His grace, I will stay the course, for “he who endures to the end shall be saved” Matt. 24:13, NKJV.
