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?

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

    1. Yes
    2. Ahhhhh bad brain—I was in 2 Samuel—actually rereading through “A heart like His” praying and asking God if this was the study to do for my small group, knowing He knew exactly which one would speak to the ladies he placed in it.
    3. To be more intimate with Him. To reach out to those closest to me who know of my faith but who may not have a relationship with Him. To invest in the younger generation of women in my life.
    4. NIV
    5. Duhhhh……come on brain…..uhhhhh…..”I Am?” total guess
    6. Guessing one of the disciples not a clue to which one, sorry I’m an idiot, I’ve studied under you since 1997.
    7. OMGOodness, this harder than my Biology test. 23 years. How embarrassing, why does my brain not hold on to this?
    8. She asked the king to save her life and the lives of her fellow Jews?
    9. His coat
    10. Uhhhhhhhhh? Darn it
    11. Saturday??? So glad we don’t get a grade
    12. Freedom—Praise God, thank the Lord I do not have to remain scared and uncertain about my future and thankfully free from my wretched past.
    13. Oh man I can’t remember his name but it makes me laugh so hard to think about it. I guess that seems a little rude but picture it and besides Paul prayed over him and God granted him back his life. How bad Paul probably felt boring the poor guy to sleep.
    14. 8 two Angels each with four wings? Just pulling stuff out of thin air lol
    15. Paul and Barnabas——don’t remember the young mans name

    20. Yep. Process has been going on for one year even after I sought her out and apologized for opening my mouth. Someone through me under the bus after I opened my mouth even though what I said was not how she repeated it. I actually said it in defense of the person who hates me but for some reason it was repeated differently. I recognize now I should not have said it at all. I called the person it hurt and apologized. She said some very hurtful things about me. I’ve never been in this situation but God is teaching me to keep my mouth shut through it. I want to plea my case because I have been treated unfairly but instead of opening my mouth to anyone I just keep telling Him about it and so far He continues to put me in a situation where I must trust Him to have the courage to show up at events and put a genuine smile on my face and a sweetness in my tone. It is hard but I keep thinking how Christ was treated so unfairly and he still forgave.
    21. Cane and Able???
    22. Go fishing???? JK answering for my sweet husband
    23. No clue. I would guess Paul
    24. Onisemus (spell check)
    25. Mostly I am trying not to “Lose ground” on the memory scripture I did with ya’ll last year. I have 24 that I memorized. I am so surprised how when I don’t say them everyday the word begin to fade from memory. After looking through this test I’m sure it doesn’t surprise you. Hahahaha.
    Thank all of you girls for what you do. Because of your choice to love him and because you all have such a passion to tell us all about what you learn from Him you have changed a sister and hopefully I have turned and changed my daughters and I’m praying it will continue to pour down each generation. I love you girls.

I contrasted that to His amazement of the centurion’s faith in Matthew 8. The same Greek word is used both places. I desire – my goal is – that Jesus be amazed by my faith, not my lack of it.

      No on cop out! Really important to let a long portion get down nice and deep before you stack on top of it. It’s only a cop out if we’re not reviewing the one we’re hoping to retain. With long portions, I try not to move on until I can say it a number of times without a ton of mistakes. Thanks for participating today, Sue!

    Hello Siesta Mama,
    I’m sorry I’m not up for a quiz. I’m not even sure I should even comment as I feel like maybe I’m raining on a parade. There were shootings in Mpls here last week and my friend Keith a UPS driver who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, just delivering a package was shot and killed. He has been one of my closest friends for more than 30 years. I feel like someone has plunged a sword through my soul. Would you pray for me Siesta Mama? I’m in so much pain I can hardly breathe. I keep thinking of Mary Beth Chapman. I know her pain must have run ten times deeper, but right now I can hardly fathom. At night I I crawl in bed and I close my eyes and picture myself curled up in my Heavenly Father’s arms and I tell my Daddy (my Heavenly Father) how much I hurt and I go to sleep.

      Oh sweet friend, as one who has lost a child can I say to you, grief in loss is as unique and individual as the person who experiences it.

Be gentle with yourself as you grieve the death of your friend and know that you have sisters who are praying for you out here. May the Lord bless you with peace, comfort and His precious love.

    Jeremiah 31:15-17 The Message

    Again, God’s message:
    “Listen to this!
    Laments coming out of Ramah, wild and bitter weeping. It’s Rachel weeping for her children,
    Rachel refusing solace.
    Her children are gone, gone—long gone into exile.”
    But God says, “Stop your incessant weeping,
    hold back your tears.
    Collect wages from your grief work.” GOD’S DECREE. “They’ll be coming back home! There’s hope for your children.” GOD’S DECREE.
