TEXT: John 8:31-59; Proverbs 30:8

  1. Do you believe in the devil?  What is the devil’s primary weapon of destruction?
  2. Read John 8:31-41.  How does knowing the truth make us free?  From what are we free?
  3. Have you ever thought of yourself as a slave to sin?  Why did the religious leaders have such a hard time with this comment from Jesus?
  4. Read John 8:42-59.  Is it possible to be used by satan and not even know it?  Have you ever been guilty of that?
  5. Jesus seemed to teach that the world was divided into 2 camps: children of satan and children of God.  Do you agree with that?  Why or why not?
  6. How do you protect yourself from being deceived?
  7. Read John 8:31-32. What does it mean for you to “hold to the teachings” of Jesus?
    • Does that characterize your life?
    • What could your life look like if you faithfully practiced holding to Christ’s teachings?
