This week our focus is on…

“And don’t let us yield to temptation,
but rescue us from the evil one.”
Matthew 6:13 (NLT)
What pulls you away from God?
Pause for a few minutes to quiet your heart and mind. Then ask God for insight and direction as you study and reflect on this week’s lesson.


Watch this week’s video*, then use the following questions for reflection and conversation. Consider these Scriptures as you study and reflect: 1 Corinthians 10:13; James 1:13-18; 1 Peter 5:8-9.
1. What stood out to you from the video? Did anything specific catch your attention?
2. Where have you taken your desires for God and attached them to people, places, outcomes and things, demanding they come through for you in a way they never can?
3. Think of an area where you struggle with temptation. What need are you trying to fill?
4. When have you experienced the influence of Satan? What in your life is being attacked?
5. Have you ever tried to get closer to Jesus but felt like something was in the way? If so, can you identify what that was? Explain.
6. How can you use Scripture and prayer to help overcome temptation?
7. What does Proverbs 3:5-6 say will happen when we acknowledge God? What correlation does this have with keeping away from sources of temptation?
8. When tempted, what other tools can you use to grow closer to God?
9. Describe a time God helped you overcome temptation.
10. How would your relationship with God be different if you were more aware of the enemy?
11. In what ways do you need God to rescue you?
Guided Prayer
Thank God for His protection and power that allows you to resist the enemy's temptations. Ask Him to reveal any areas of weakness. Pray together for strength to face the challenges you encounter.
Daily Devotional
Spend time with God each day with the Daily Devotional. Available on the App.
Memory Verse
“Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!” Matthew 26:41 (NLT)
Pray for Next Sunday
1. Pray that Brookwood is a church where people come to escape temptation and to call on the Lord with pure hearts.
2. Pray that people resist temptation by rejecting overconfidence and refusing resentment.
3. Pray that people rely fully on God for His protection.
