You must purge the evil from among you. Deuteronomy 19:19
purge = get rid of / evil = ungodly attitude or action

Why is it so important to purge?
Healthy Living / Having only 1 God / Holy Representation / Hearing from God

Today, is purging evil (ungodly attitudes & actions) really necessary?

When it comes to evil, Jesus drew it out, called us out, gave us a way out.

Fruit of the Spirit = love, joy, peace, patience, kind, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control

How could purging evil benefit our transition and journey to our promised future?
Having only 1 God / Holy Representation / Healthy Living / Hearing from God

Internally, what attitude do you need to purge?
Externally, what action do you need to purge?
May you jump into the arms of Jesus and may He push out into the world. May you be healed as you participate in the healing of others. Not because you must, but because you may. This is why we were born!
Beyond Sunday
Like the Israelites in the desert heading toward the Promised Land, we are a faith community heading into a promised future. In this series, Together: Remembering - Experiences that Inform Our Future, we will learn from the Israelites’ story, found in the Book of Deuteronomy, about what they were called to remember in order to follow God well. This week, we focus on remembering how God desires us to purge the evil amongst us.

1. Review: Pick 1 to reflect on and discuss:
---What have you been remembering about what God has done for you?
---How is BLESSing others in your land going?
---What commandment have you been attempting to live into more?
---Where are you with having a posture of fearing the Lord?
---How have you embraced that you are God’s treasured possession?

2. How have you seen evil (ungodly attitudes or actions) cause destruction to a person, family, and community?

3. Reflect on Deuteronomy 19:19. Why is purging evil from amongst the Israelites so important? What is the context of this passage? Why do you think God restates the line, “You must purge the evil from among you” nine other times in the book (v.13:5, 17:7, 12, 19:13, 21:21, 22:21, 22, 24, 24:7)?

4. If purging evil is ridding oneself of ungodly attitudes and actions, brainstorm unhealthy and healthy motivations for purging evil. Why is it so important to have the right motivation when seeking to purge evil in our lives?

5. Why is purging evil individually and corporately so important to us as a church, as we move forward into our future? What did Jesus say and do about purging evil? (Review Peter 1:14.)

6. What attitudes or actions do you need to purge? What would be the benefit if you did? How could drawing near to God help this process?
