INTRODUCTION TO BIBLE STUDY GUIDE

These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.

Bible Study Guide:

Sow in Peace

By Scarlett Stough

 

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, A Harvest of Righteousness.

1. James 3:17; Matthew 5:9 What does being a peacemaker mean? In your experience, how successful are people in general at being peacemakers? Why is peace-loving as a component of wisdom important to resolving conflicts?

2. Isaiah 59:8; Romans 3:17; Psalm 36:1 What do you think the “fear of God” has to do with being able to learn “the way of peace?”

3. Romans 5:1-2; Isaiah 52:7; I Corinthians 1:20-31 Explain from Scripture how Jesus is our “wisdom from God” in relation to becoming a peacemaker.

4. Hebrews 12:5-14; James 3:18; James 1:20 Describe the role discipline has in building a righteous, peace-loving character which includes godly wisdom? What do we “sow” in order to reap “righteousness?”

5.II Corinthians 13:11 Define “perfection” as used in this passage. Describe the quality of being of “one mind.” How can people of different cultures, beliefs, preferences and other differences “live in peace?”

6. After reading these passages, do you have any more insights on the importance of peace to the quality of wisdom? How can we build a peace-loving character?
