2/18 Assignment – Due February 25
We’re laying some memory foundations. My goal is to equip our young people to be able to read, understand, and remember what they read, especially in the Bible. Here’s this week’s quiz:
1. Why do we read the Bible?
We read the Bible because it is the only source of truth. It is God’s power for salvation. It is what the Holy Spirit uses to give faith. When we read the Bible, we hear God’s voice and we are drawn closer to him.
Romans 1:16 – 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.
Romans 10:17 – 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
John 20:31 – 31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
John 6:63 – 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.
2. What did Jesus use to fight against Satan’s temptations?
Jesus used the Word of God to fight Satan. He quoted Bible passages to reveal God’s will. God’s Word is the only weapon that we have that can defeat Satan.
3. Name the passages that Jesus used.
Matthew 4:4 – 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Matthew 4:7 – 7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
Matthew 4:10 – 10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”
4. The Sixth Commandment.
You shall not commit adultery.
What does this mean?
We should fear and love God that we lead a pure and decent life in words and actions, and that husband and wife love and honor each other.
5. Why do we have confirmation class? (3 answers)
a. To equip ourselves for good works.
b. To learn how to enjoy life.
c. God commands us to talk about Him and to teach our children about Him.
d. To learn about life. There’s more to life than what we can see. “We live by faith, not by sight.” – 2 Corinthians 5:7 –
e. Our real challenges are spiritual and eternal, not physical.
