Consider this….

To You, from Pastor Tim Avazian,

 
Rev. Tim Avazian
Message: “New Year, Fresh Start: God’s Word”
Scripture: Psalm 1 January 17, 2021
 
Questions to Consider:

  • When you went on a road trip with your family, what
    kept you entertained? Was it singing songs or
    playing car games? Did you read, sleep or just
    keep entertained by watching the scenery?
  •  Read Psalm 1. What observations do you make?
    What descriptive images are used? What type of
    poetic devices are used in this poem? What is
    compared and contrasted in the poem?
  •  Are there “sinners” that you walk with? Is this a
    good or bad thing for your spiritual life? Are there
    some relationships that you should be wary? What
    can you do to make sure these relationships don’t
    “lead you to a path of destruction?”
  •  How are you “velcroed” to God’s Word and God’s
    people? How might you “delight” in the law of the
    Lord? What do you do (or might you do) to
    “meditate” on God’s Word and to be connected with
    God’s people?
  •  What steps can you take this week to be a person
    that delights in God’s Word and is connected to His
    people? Who can hold you accountable to these
    steps?
