ONE

Intro

ONE moment can define history. One decision can change a life. One person can start a movement. The power of one resounds through Scripture. And in this study, you will travel through the Word to discover a powerful message that God has for you: There is ONE God. And there is ONE way to Him. The Church is ONE family united under His banner. And there is ONE main mission we’ve been entrusted with. ONE is a powerful study that may very well change the way you see your faith and the world around you. But are you ready? HAVE YOU PREPARED FOR THE JOURNEY? Ask yourself: Is my heart prepared to be challenged? Am I willing to be changed? If you can’t answer, “yes” to these questions, this journey might not be nearly as spectacular as it could be. If you need to, take a moment and silently talk to God in prayer. Ask God to radically move in your life. YOU’RE HOLDING YOUR MAP This book you’re holding is the road map for your journey. It will help guide your experiences. Write your name and the date in the front. Hold on to it. You may want to look back and remember this time in your life. LEARN. AND TEACH. Keep your eyes and ears open for those valuable moments where God wants to teach you something. But don’t miss the chance to teach your friends, and to be taught by them. Your friends are with you in this experience. Be open to what God is doing in and through them, and how He might be using them to speak to you. And vice versa.

You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. Deuteronomy 6:5

YOUR JOURNEY IS JUST BEGINNING. BE PREPARED TO BE CHANGED . . .

LARGE group notes SESSION 1

These two pages are designed for you to take notes on during Large Group Sessions. The stuff you’re learning will really build on itself over the next few sessions. So even if you’re not much of a note taker, you might want to at least jot down what you think is important. TRY WRITING DOWN: • Any specific teaching points • Verse references for Scripture passages • Quotes that make you think • Anything you have a question about

Who is number 1 in each category? Work with your group to find out.

2.

You don’t need to be told that the world around you rejects the notion of “one God.” As a teenager, you’re sort of an expert on the ways the world comes against your faith. Your belief in one God is either seen as simplistic or intolerant. Our culture laughs at absolute-truth statements.

HERE’S THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS: GOD’S DECLARATION IN DEUTERONOMY 6, AND THROUGHOUT SCRIPTURE, FLIES IN THE FACE OF SUCH MOCKERY.

2.

The Bible is clear: there is one true God. Only one. He has a name. He has a history. He has a specific nature. He won’t be threatened, diminished, or otherwise moved by the objections of those who refuse to call on Him as Lord. The coolest thing about God? He stands lovingly ready to accept all who will come to Him in faith and submission.

DIGGING IN

Look at verse 6. In chapter 5, Moses had reminded Israel of the 10 Commandments. We just saw how Moses came back around and reminded Israel that there is only one God, and that they know Him! Why is it important that the Israelites have all of this “on their heart”? What do you think that even means?

The One, True God

THERE IS ONLY ONE, TRUE GOD. WORK THROUGH THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS WITH YOUR GROUP TO UNPACK WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOUR LIFE.

1. READ DEUTERONOMY 6:4 Summarize what verse 4 is saying to us.

There’s an additional aspect to verse 4 we can easily miss. Why is the word “LORD” in all caps? Why this is written this way?

Taken together, these two concepts are important in our understanding of God. Why is it significant that the Bible says there is only one God, and that He has a specific name?

Read back over verses 7-9. Let’s write down all the different things Moses told the Israelites to do with their knowledge of God.

From a big-picture perspective, what do you think Moses is doing here? What was he wanting the people to do?

2. READ DEUTERONOMY 6:5 Summarize what verse 5 is saying to us.

What is the connection between what we learned about God in verse 4 and how we’re supposed to approach Him in verse 5?

Look back at your list. If you had to pull out one of the instructions Moses gave the people that really stands out to you as important, what would it be and why?

What does it mean to love God with your entire self?
