(FINAL EPISODE) GRO #104: Ready Your Weapons

NOTE: This is the final weekly episode of GroTV. Check back here often for future videos, special teachings, and to enjoy the full two year archive of GroTV. All 104 episodes are searchable by topic, scripture and keyword.

Questions for Further Study:

1. Read about the armor of God in Ephesians 6:13-17. Why does Paul equate spiritual concepts with weapons and armor? Is there a risk for Christians who do not “take up the full armor”? How often must we put on this armor?

2. The Word of God is one of the most essential weapons for a follower of Christ. Read what Hebrews 4:12 says about this. What is the Word of God? What power does the Word have over the enemy? … Over our own hostile thoughts and attitudes? How to we activate this weapon?

3. Another critical weapon is the Spirit of God working in a believer’s life. Look at Zechariah 4:6. Why can we trust His Spirit instead of human might and power?

4. Other weapons are found in Philippians 2:9-11 and Revelation 12:11. What are these weapons that will cause “every knee to bow” and your enemy to be “overcome”?

5. A lot of Christians turn their legitimate concern for the age into a fear of the future. Study Isaiah 54:17 and Romans 8:31. Should we fear the enemy and his schemes? Why or why not?

  • GroTV #103: The Invisible War

    Questions for Further Study:

    1. What does 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 and Ephesians 6:10-13 teach us about spiritual warfare? Do you realize you are in such a battle? Is it wise for a Christian to ignore this war?

    2. Many Christians also don’t realize who their enemy is. Look at John 10:10 and 1 Peter 5:8. Who is this enemy and what is his objective?

    3. Where did Peter learn about this enemy? Read what Jesus taught him in Luke 22:30-32 and Matthew 13:37-39. What evidence do you see in your life that reveals the existence of a spiritual enemy?

    4. Satan’s strategy is to deceive you. How? See Genesis 3 and 2 Corinthians 11:14. Can you think of lies the enemy has told you that you have agreed with? How do those lies compare to what God says about you in the Bible?

    5. Do we have power over this enemy? Read Luke 10:19, 1 Corinthians 10:13 and James 4:7.

  • GroTV #102: Focus

    Questions for Further Study:

    1) Does God have a plan for your life or do we make our own path? Study Hebrews 12:1, John 10:27, Psalm 37:23 and Jeremiah 29:11.

    2) Read Hebrews 12:1-3. What is it that entangles you? Where should our eyes be focused on? What must we do to not grow weary of life and lose heart?

    3) Now read Hebrews 12:7-8. Why do we endure hardships and pain? How has God disciplined you in the past? What does it say about those who are not disciplined?

    4) As you face different trials you may feel like your faith is getting weaker. But, like a workout, the weaker you’re getting the stronger you’re getting. See 2 Corinthians 12:10. What does the apostle Paul mean by his “weakness”? Where should our strength come from?

    5) Sometimes negative experiences become magnified in our mind and are played over and over. Look at Philippians 3:13-14. What strategy does Paul use to stay focused on what is in front of him? What past experiences do you need God to help you “forget”?
