October 4 – Love and Devotion to Others

Alternate Title – Love that Intercedes

Alternate Title #2 – Love That Helps Friends

Bible Lesson: 1 Samuel 19:1-7 (KJV)

Key verse:
1 Samuel 19:4 (KJV) - "And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to theeward very good."

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Background Review: God had decided that David would be the next king of Israel and He sent Samuel to anoint David.

When Samuel anointed David, the Spirit of the Lord came upon him (1 Samuel 16:13). In contrast, the Lord sent a tormenting spirit to fill king Saul with depression and fear (1 Samuel 16:14).

David was brought into Saul's presence as a harp player to help calm Saul of his tormenting spirit (1 Samuel 16:23). Saul liked David so much that he became a member of his staff (1 Samuel 16:21).

Armed with only a slingshot, David gained much providence when he killed their enemya giant named Goliath. Saul was impressed favorably with David and he made him a commander in his army (1 Samuel 18:5).

However, Saul's opinion of David changed dramatically when he started viewing David as a competitor for the admiration and adoration of the people. In particular, he became very angry when the women sang this song as the victorious Israelite army returned:

This was their song: "Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands!" (1 Samuel 18:7).

Saul now viewed David as a competitor for his position as king (1 Samuel 18:8). This incident made Saul very jealous of David and one day he tried to kill him with a spear (1 Samuel 18:11).

In the meantime, David and JonathanSaul's sonhad become very close friends:

"And Jonathan made a special vow to be David's friend, and he sealed the pact by giving him his robe, tunic, sword, bow, and belt." (1 Samuel 18:3-4).

Lesson Synopsis
: Even though David's presence on the battlefield had brought glory and victory to the army of Israel, Saulthe king of Israelwas jealous and fearful. He wanted David killed (1 Samuel 19:1-2).

This is similar to the jealousy that Joseph's brothers had toward him (that we studied last month). Some of the brothers had such a jealous rage that they wanted to kill him (Genesis 37:18). But Reuben talked them out of killing Joseph (Genesis 37:21).

In the case of David, it was Jonathanthe son of king Saulwho talked the king out of killing David by pointing to many good things David had done while he had done nothing to harm Saul (1 Samuel 19:4). This appeased Saul and he relented in his effort to have David killed (at lease temporarily).

Because of his good friend Jonathan, David was then out of danger (1 Samuel 19:6). Unfortunately we will find that, in the future, the tormenting spirit will come upon Saul again and he will renew his efforts to kill David (1 Samuel 19:9).

What does this all have to do with our lesson title?

First, it shows the advantages of having good friends who will stand up for us when others are bent on causing problems for us like spreading disparaging gossip.

Secondly, the way we live will affect the opinion our friends have for us. We play roles in both sides; the side where we need a friend to speak up for us, and the side when we will speak up for a friend.

Finally, what kind of friend does the Lord want us to be? He answered this question in Mark 12:31 NIV:

"The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

A good friend is one that will be there for you in a time of need. That friend is ready to offer good and godly advice but will also stand ready to do something helpful for you. This also describes how we should be towards our friends.

October 11 – Love Your Enemies

Alternate Title – Love For Enemies

Bible Lesson: Luke 6:27-36 (KJV)

Key verses:
Luke 6:27-28 (KJV) - "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Our reference Scripture says to love our enemies ... which on the surface seems like an impossible mission. Also, some of us might say we have no enemies. Neither assumption is accurate.

The dictionary gives this definition for enemy:

"A person who feels hatred for, fosters harmful designs against, or engages in antagonistic activities against another; an adversary."

An enemy is therefore one who doesn't like us for any of a variety of reasons and would do us harm physically or verbally if given the opportunity.

When we associate with or identify with certain people or organizations we may have enemies by no fault of our own. If you identify as an American, you automatically have enemies who hate you. If you identify as a Democrat or as a Republican, you have enemies. If you identify as a Christian, you have enemies. If you believe in something as innocuous as climate change due to pollutants, you will have enemies.

If you are African American, or Caucasian, you have enemies. If you are a policeman, you have enemies. If you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, an enemy who doesn't even know you may choose to rob or kill you.

The fact is, there are people who plot against us without even knowing us on a personal basis or what we stand for. We could go on and on but the point is clearwe all have enemies or can be faced with enemy-like behavior at any time.

To love our enemies doesn't necessarily mean we want to be around them all the time or share a bowl of ice cream with them. It means we don't wish them any harm and instead wish them a change in their life that would bring them closer to the Lord.

We even can have enemies in our church family. Offering an olive branch to someone we consider an enemy in our church is all it might take to change the relationship with that person. It might mean simply speaking to him/her when they would otherwise walk right pass us without saying a word.

There were two members of my church who had a relationship problem. One member showed wisdom, understanding, and humility by asking the other member if he would like to go fishing with him one day since they both liked to fish. Surprisingly, he said yes and the relationship became a friendly one after that first fishing trip.

Luke 6:30 has caused a great amount of discussion and some controversy. However, if we remember that as believers all we do should work toward the glory and will of God then we should give to anyone who asks of us to help us fulfill our quest. Our life should be dedicated to Him and not ourselves.

With this in mind, if another believer should ask for something from us that is in the will of God and serves his glory, then Luke 6:30 determines our response. If it is asked of us to help with vacation Bible school, we should give of our time. If donations are needed for a mission trip or activity, we should give of our money.

For God's glory, we should give whenever we can to help others who have an honest need or help others advance the kingdom of God on earth.

The key verses: Luke 6:27-28 (NLT) - "But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you."

October 18 – Loving Your Neighbor

Alternate Title – Love For Neighbors

Bible Lesson: Luke 10:25-37 (KJV)

Key verses:
Luke 10:36-37 (KJV) - "Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)

What shall we learn from this lesson:

This lesson is about loving our neighbor as we love ourselves. This doesn't mean we should first love ourselves as in a conceited or self-centered manner. To love ourselves means we should care enough for ourselves to provide what we need for our physical, mental, and religious wellbeing.

The lesson text opens with a verbal discourse between Jesus and a Jewish expert in the law (Mosaic religious law). He wanted to know what he needed to do to gain eternal life (salvation from God). He correctly recited the following commandment according to the Mosaic law:

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." Luke 10:27 KJV

Then the lawyer asked Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?" Jesus taught the answer by using a parable rather than providing a straightforward response.

In His parable, the hero was a Samaritan who showed an injured man an act of kindness that probably saved his life. We know this parable as the "Parable of the Good Samaritan."

Today, the term "Good Samaritan" refers to anyone who is generous in helping those in distressa person who does good deeds out of compassion and not because of any hope for reward.

In fact, many states have Good Samaritan laws which protect individuals who, in good faith and without payment, come to the aid of someone in distress. It could involve something like using CPR on a stranger or just trying to make the person more comfortable.

An example is one that occurred in 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. A newspaper photographer who was covering the annual Christmas parade collapsed. A pastor from a nearby church, acting as a Good Samaritan, used his church's Defibrillator to save the photographer's life. Since the pastor acted in good faith, he was protected by Tennessee's Good Samaritan laws.

We may never be called upon to aid someone using CPR or a defibrillator. So what other types of action could qualify us to be a Good Samaritan? Sympathetic words and advice may be all that's needed to aid a person in a time of emotional distress. A person in desperate financial distress may only need money.

We could go on and on with other examples but they all center around loving our neighbor as ourselves.

Discussion of the Parable of the Good Samaritan (as told by Jesus to explain who our neighbor is.)

An injured man desperately needed help because someone had attacked and robbed him, stripping him of his clothes, as he traveled from Jerusalem to Jericho, leaving him injured and half-dead (Luke 10:30 NIV). A priest and a Levite passed him by and did not help. They even went to the other side of the road to avoid getting too close to the injured man. They avoided taking action.

If any of us had been beaten and robbed and left half-dead, what would we want for ourselves? The answer is obvious. We would want someone to stop and help us; to take action.

To love someone as we would love ourselves would then imply that we should help someone who is in need and not seek to avoid them. This type of thinking promotes action on our part.

Jesus' parable in many respects parallels the thought behind what we call the "golden rule" (also taught by Jesus):

"Do to others as you would have them do to you." Luke 6:31 NIV

In this usage, the word "do" indicates action and not a passive response such as what the priest and Levite did in the parable.

What makes the choice of a Samaritan so important in this parable? Why is this choice better than selecting a random person not affiliated with any culture?

One of the most important factors is that Jews and Samaritans generally didn't like each other and some would say they despised each other. We can get some idea of this from the time Jesus asked a Samaritan woman for a drink from the well (John 4:9 NKJV).

The fact that Jews didn't associate with Samaritans can lead to two approaches to the parable which both indicate why the herobeing a Samaritanis so important.

One approach is that the Samaritan stopped to knowingly help an injured man who was a Jew. With this point of view, we see that a Samaritan, whose people the Jews didn't like (and vice versa), set aside any feelings of prejudice he might have to help someone who would most likely not even want to associate with him under normal conditions.

This approach would have a sobering effect on the Jewish lawyer listening to the parable. It meant that anyone could be considered as our neighbor. It would mean to the Jewish listener in our story that the commandment he had recited so well about loving our neighbor also applied to people he didn't like, such as Samaritans.

Let's look at another possible approach to the parable. The King James Version of the Bible doesn't specify in our reference text whether or not the injured man was a Jew. Neither do most other versions (including NIV, NASB, and ESV). Let's look at the King James Version:

"And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead." Luke 10:30 KJV.

In this passage, the injured man was referred to as "a certain man" not specifically a Jew. We can see that the man was also described as "half dead" and therefore he was possibly not able to speak fluently or speak at all. In that case, he couldn't indicate that he was or was not a Jew. The man's clothing had been stolen, so he could not be identified by any traditional Jewish attire.

Therefore, we can speculate that perhaps the Samaritan didn't know or even care what culture the injured man identified with. He helped him regardless.

Both approaches have a common theme: To think that Jewish "church" leaders like a priest and a Levite would pass the man by while someone like a Samaritan would stop to help would be shocking to the Jewish lawyer listening to this parable. It shows that sometimes the most unlikely people could help us as a neighbor when others—who we might call friendsmay pass us by.

Therefore, choosing a Samaritan as the only one who helped the injured man would have a great impact on the Jewish listener who most likely did not think much of Samaritans.

We can see the choice of a Samaritan was, therefore, important not only to the theme of the parable but also for the benefit of the Jewish lawyer who was listening to Jesus.

The answer to his question of who was his neighbor was probably more than the lawyer had anticipated. The answer revealed to him that the neighbor he must love as himself could be anyone regardless of race, creed, or color.

Jesus asked the lawyer which one of these three was a neighbor to the injured man? (Luke 10:36 NIV). The lawyer answered correctly that it was the person who stopped to render aid (Luke 10:37).

So, the one who stopped to help exemplified a person loving his neighbor as himself.

Both approaches to the parable mean loving our neighbor must include showing compassion to anyone in distress regardless of who they are or who we think they are.

But how can we react to a person's need for compassion if we don't understand their pain? A man would find it difficult to completely understand the pain associated with childbirth. He has never been pregnant and never will be.

The slave owner would have found it difficult to understand the pain of enslavement because he would never be a slave. Someone who has never had a drinking problem may find it difficult to understand the challenges of living as an alcoholic. A person who has never experience chronic depression would have a difficult time understanding the lasting feeling of despair associated with that illness.

Therefore, to love someone as we love ourselves implies we must be able to empathize with people who are in pain or distress. We must show compassion. Even if we haven't experienced the exact same pain that someone we know is experiencing, we know what pain is and how terrible it can feel.

With the help of the Holy Spirit, we should endeavor to be somebody's Good Samaritan when we are needed. Our goal is to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Probably all of us can remember someone in our life who has been a Good Samaritan to us. Because of their act of kindness, their act of forgiveness or love, it is possible we underwent a fundamental change in our attitude toward helping someone else.

Perhaps their act of kindness resulted in us becoming more forgiving or more likely to give someone a second chance, or more likely to do the same type act of kindness for someone else.

So, one major purpose of this parable is to help transform us into being more compassionate; to love our neighbor as ourself and to be moved to action.

When faced with whether or not to help someone in distress or in need; the words of James 4:17 should be our guide:

"Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it." James 4:17 NLT

So, the next time we are faced with an opportunity to help someone, let us remember the Parable of the Good Samaritan and the lawyer's conclusion that the one who loved his neighbor is the one who showed mercy.

Jesus' instruction to the lawyer (and to us) is to "go and do the same" (Luke 10:37).

October 25 – Love Devine

Alternate Title – Love Never Fails

Bible Lesson: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (KJV) (complete chapter 13)

Key verse:
1 Corinthians 13:13 (KJV) - "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. "

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Background: In the King James Version, the original Greek translation to English uses the predominant word "charity." Most other Bible translations (early and recent) uses the word "love." We have chosen to use "love" in this discussion because it is more appropriate to our understanding.

To understand some important parts of our reference text, a preliminary discussion of "spiritual gifts" would be in order. The following comes from "The Book of the Holy Spirit - Joyful Living"

"All believers are given a spiritual gift (or gifts) which can be used to help each other (1 Corinthians 12:7), and advance God's kingdom on earth. It is the Holy Spirit alone who decides which gift each of us will receive. He alone distributes the gifts (1 Corinthians 12:11), which may or may not be what we consider a talent.

"You may have the talent of singing, but your spiritual gift may be encouraging others, or teaching the Word. It could be anything which helps you love and honor God or helps others love and honor God because of you.

"Just as a pastor may be called by God to minister to a group of believers, you are also called to use whatever spiritual gift you have received.

"The Holy Spirit will enable and help you use your gift if you call upon Him for help. You are not alone. You will not fail in using the gift because it is a declared blessing from God. He is never going to ask you to do something you are not capable of doing ... and doing well."

Lesson Discussion
(Love is the most important thing): 

The Lord wants us to be loving people; loving to our God; loving to our neighbor; loving even to our enemies, and to return hate with love. The following Scripture will help explain His desires:

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." Luke 10:27 KJV 

"But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you." (Luke 6:27 KJV)

Spiritual gifts are facilitated by love, and have love as their basis and foundation. Through love, we apply the gifts to those who will benefit. We can draw an analogy to a wonderful bucket of paint. By itself, the paint is a great item but it doesn't fulfill its purpose until it is applied to something. The paint on a house makes it beautiful. The paint on and artist's canvas can make a masterpiece.

If we have the spiritual gift of faith so to move mountains, if moving the mountains doesn't benefit someone through love then moving the mountains is just an exercise. "If I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing" (1 Cor 13:2 NASB).

Let us consider some of the other spiritual gifts: encouragement, discernment, evangelism, giving, healing, knowledge, leadership, mercy, pastor/shepherd, teaching, and so on. Notice that these gifts have little function unless they are applied to someone. That application is through love.

As an example, the gift of teaching is of little value if there is no class or individual to teach. Having the gift of being a pastor is great, but if there are no people to pastor, how can it help advance the kingdom of God? The Lord wants us to be loving people and therefore we apply our gifts to others through the love we have for them.

As a loving person, the teacher has love for the students and cares about them and their future success. As a teacher, Jesus had love for those He taught and He taught them to love others.

Paul said that we should clothe ourselves with love which binds us together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:14). He also said, "Of the three things which will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love (Corinthians 13:14)." Therefore, love is the most important thing.

As a believer, our true desire should be to live a godly life. We want to be like God. It is said that God is love (1 John 4:8). To understand what this statement means all we need do is to read some of Paul's description of the attributes of love in Chapter 13 to see that they apply to God.

From 1 Corinthians 13:4-6, 8a NIV

"4. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

"5. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

"6. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

"8a. Love never fails."

We will come to realize the description is that of God when we substitute God for love in this Scripture:

4. God is patient, God is kind. God does not envy, God does not boast, God is not proud.

5. God does not dishonor others, God is not self-seeking, God is not easily angered, God keeps no record of wrongs.

6. God does not delight in evil but God rejoices with the truth.

8a. God never fails.

It is God's love that saved us: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 ESV)

November 1 – Loving by Serving

Alternate Title – Serving Love

Bible Lesson: John 13:1-15, 34-35 (KJV)

Key verse:
John 13:15 (KJV) - "For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)

What shall we learn from this lesson:

Jesus' hour had come. It was time for Him to prepare to give His life so that we could have salvation through His blood. In the past when His life was in jeopardy, no one took Him because His hour had not come:

So they were seeking to seize Him; and no man laid his hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.
(John 7:30 NASB)

These words he spoke in the treasury, as he taught in the temple; but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come. (John 8:20 ESV)

Before the Passover celebration, Jesus knew His hour had come and it was time to leave this world and return to the Father (John 13:1). He said, "The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified" (John 12:23 KJV). His whole life and ministry had lead up to this point.

It was time to prepare the disciples for what would come. The setting of the reference text was at the last supper Jesus would have with His disciples before He would be betrayed by Judas and then crucified.

He did something to His disciples which demonstrated how important humility and love were. He washed their feet. He was the most important one in the room but He did what was normally expected of the least important one.

He didn't just say for them to not be proud ...He showed them. This was akin to Him telling a parable to make a point except He acted it out in a dramatic way. This would be something they would never forget and would help mold their lives.

Jesus came to the world not to be served but to serve (Matthew 20:28). As a member of the body of Christ, we are to humble ourselves so we can help others. If we always are focusing on what pleases us and bragging about ourselves, how can we help others?

His disciples had been arguing about who would be the greatest in the kingdom (Luke 22:24). Washing their feet showed them that their importance was secondary to their love and desire to serve others. This attitude focused on the cravings of the world; pride in our achievements and our own self-worth. The Bible warns us to avoid this type of thinking:

"Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world" (1 John 2:15-16 NLT).

You may have an opportunity to see this type of thinking in action if your church is like another I have attended. It amazed me to see the deacons serving the congregation at a fellowship meal. It didn't matter to them what their secular position was ... from a college calculus instructor to a manager and even a judge, they still served those of us who had no position of authority.

In the Body of Christ, the first must be last and a servant to all (Mark 9:35). "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5)" is one of the Beatitudes and means meekness and humility is valued more than arrogance and pride.

If we want to please God, our life must be dedicated to first advancing His kingdom and not our own importance. It is He that we must love and give thanks, for it is He that made us and not we ourselves.

All our success and human value we owe to Him. Therefore, we should approach life with humility and not pride. Even though Jesus came to earth as the long-awaited Messiah, He demonstrated, by washing His disciple's feet, that they (and we) should not focus on self-importance.

Key verse:
John 15:5 (KJV) - "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."

(Pop-up references come from The New Living Translation courtesy of Faithlife Reftagger)

What shall we learn from this lesson:

In the reference Scripture, we are led to understand our dependence on Jesus and His teachings is paramount. He is the vine and we are the branches. Therefore, our spiritual nurishment and spiritual life depend on Him.

Just as with any plant, we must remain connected to the source of nurishment if we are to live and produce fruit. We remain connected to Christ through the Holy Spirit and the word of God. We have an internal committment to live as He desires us to.
