Meditation on the Commands of Christ is most effective when we understand the essential meaning of each command. By asking questions, we can go beneath the surface and discover the powerful truths and applications that God intended for each one.
Daily Success participants will find study questions and answers provided online to stimulate their thinking on specific commands.
- Why did God deliver Abraham and Sarah in spite of the lie that they told to Pharoah and Abimelech and yet destroy Ananias and Sapphira for the lie that they told to Peter?
- Since God requires openness and honesty in all of our dealings, why did God bless Esther and Mordecai for withholding her true identity from the one whom she married?
- God created man to have fellowship with Him on earth and throughout eternity. Why, then, would He allow Satan to set up an opposing kingdom and deceive whole nations into following him to eternal destruction?
These study questions are motivated by the method Jesus used when He revealed Himself to His disciples on the road to Emmaus. “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24:27). Later those disciples commented on the experience by saying, “Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” (Luke 24:32).
Learn from the study questions and answers we provide, but don’t stop there! Ask God to give you other questions that you can research to gain an even deeper understanding of His commands. Remember that God promises to instruct us and reveal Himself to us if we focus on Him and His commands. (See Psalm 16:7 and John 14:21.) Ask Him to give you questions as you go to sleep and then enjoy searching for the answers and applications!
