Pop Quiz!

Hey, Sweet Things! How about a pop quiz?? Come on, let’s do it! But only under one condition: NO CONDEMNATION. Not one iota and I mean it. If you’re down on yourself today or somebody’s made you feel dumb or if you’ve been compulsively running like a wild woman from every spiritual discipline like we all do sometimes, you get a hall pass. This is just for fun for those who think this kind of thing is a bit exhilarating. Translation: it’s Nerd Day in Siestaville. If you’re not into the classroom thing, pass this post by and catch up on some old ones. We’ll post a new one soon.

For those of you who want to participate, please limit your comments to the question number and briefest possible response. Some of them will be simple yeses and nos. On the questions that apply, you can by all means use your Bibles but try to answer as many as possible without them. You might consider the object of the game to see how fast you can answer all of these amid the page flipping. Needless to say,  you’ll need to answer your questions without reading any of the comments first. Cheating would be a tad counterproductive. Grin. You might do the test on a Word document then copy and paste it in your comment.

1. Have you been in the Scriptures today?

2. If so, what’s the primary verse you remember?

3. What is the major theme God seems to have going with you right now? (Answer in a phrase)

4. What is your favorite translation of the Bible just for the pure pleasure of reading?

5. By what Name did God tell Moses He would be known throughout all generations?

6. To what individual did Jesus say, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me?”

8. For what courageous statement is Queen Esther most well known?

9. What did Potiphar’s wife keep of Joseph’s?

10. What three men did the Apostle Paul consider to be the pillars of the church?

11. What day of the week did the Apostle John receive his first post-ascension vision of Christ?

12. Those of us who are in Christ have not received a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. What exactly did we receive instead according to that same context?

13. Name three characteristics of the Proverbs 31 woman.Try to answer first from memory.

14. Who fell asleep during one of Paul’s sermons and dropped out of the window?

15. When Isaiah saw the Lord high and lifted up, how many wings did the seraphim around Him have?

16. What two godly men had a falling out in the Book of Acts? Who was it over?

17. Name five sets of married couples in the Bible.

18. In one word, what is your biggest challenge right now?

19. Name two people you’ve encouraged today.

20. Why did Jesus marvel in Mark 6:6?

21. Are you actively getting to practice loving someone you’re pretty sure can’t stand you right now? (No names please) If so, how long have you been in this process?

22. What are the names of the firstborn son and his brother in Genesis 22:21?

23. What would the sons of Korah rather do than dwell in the tents of wickedness?

24. Who penned the Book of Hebrews?

25. What runaway slave did Paul send back to his master, asking him to receive him graciously as a brother?

Bonus: Are you memorizing a Scripture right now? If so, tell it to us!

 

Thanks so much for playing today! If you hated it, we’ll try to do something you like better soon.

You’re a huge blast to me.

Beth

By the way, I’m doing your study “A Woman’s Heart, God’s Dwelling Place” right now for the 2nd time (I love it!) with my mom and sister, and after watching one of your recent videos I turned to my sister, Becca and said “I would love to have a slumber party with Beth! She would be so fun to giggle with. “

    Kim says:

    Will have to take quiz tonight when I get home from church. But I wanted to share what I have been studying!

    Today in Romans 5:10-11
    10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

    It is awesome to me that because of Jesus’ death I am a FRIEND of God!

    Recently I also studied Col 1:9, 10 & 11

    Colossians 1:

    9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
    10 Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
    11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, 12 always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light.13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

    This passage really spoke to me about how our Father rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us to the Kingdom of HIS dear son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins!

    So I have prayed this prayer for my siestas:

    Dear Heavenly Father:

    Lord, I ask you give us complete knowledge of Your will and give us spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way we live will always honor and please you Lord, our lives will produce every kind of good fruit! All the while we will grow as we learn to know You better and better. I also pray that we will be strengthened with all Your glorious power so we will have endurance and perseverance that we need. May we be filled with joy, always thanking you Father, for you have enable us to share in the inheritance that belongs to Your people, who live in the light! For You have rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of Your dear Son who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins! Amen

    I LOVE this passage, it makes me praise God for all his goodness! PS notice I substituted the word perseverance for patience in my prayer…I learned long ago, to NEVER pray for patience…because the only way you learn patience is through trails…have I learned enough about patience in the past few years! Shalom! Love to my siestas, Kim
