The Pilgrim's Progress - Week 6

A Faithful Companion

Personal Meditation

KEY THEMES:

  • God gives us Christian friends to strengthen and encourage us.
  • True pilgrims are doers of the Word, not just hearers or talkers.
  • Pastors teach, equip, and care for God’s people along the way.

KEY VERSES:
 
1 John 1:6–9

If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 2:15–17
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
 
James 1:22
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
 
1 Thessalonians 5:23–24
23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
