SPEAKER

Steve Hill

SCRIPTURE

1 John 2:15-17

BIG IDEA

When we love the world we become its hostage.

OUTLINE

  1. Beware of Spiritual Hostage Takers.
  2. Breaking Free by loving for Jesus.
    • Focus on the eternal.
    • Trust Jesus not the world.
    • Find rock solid spiritual friendships.

TALK IT OVER

  1. Pastor Steve discussed a spiritual Stockholm syndrome. The kidnapper is the world and the hostages are the Christians. Have you experienced this in your life? Do you see it in others?
  2. How can we love people without loving the world? Where do you find tension?
  3. John mentioned the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life in verse 16. Do you struggle with any of these?
  4. How do you fight temptation on a daily basis?
