Questions 

1) What comfort do you gain from the fact that Jesus knows the environment in which you live?

2) How often do you contemplate Christ’s pleasure in your faithfulness in difficult situations? What might such reflections do for you as a Christian?

3) When do we need courage? When and how is courage exercised?

4) How have you observed and experienced Satan’s two tactics? (Intimidation and enticement)
