These lessons examine the good influences that motivate us to obey God, and shows how we can either cause them to fail, or nurture and strengthen them.
The Influence of Society —Our social environment is the first influence which affects us. Soon after birth, we began to relate to people around us.
The Influence of Conscience —The conscience is that faculty of human nature which knows to refuse evil and choose good.
The Influence of Intellect —God has given us intellect so that our faith and obedience to him might be that of intelligent choice.
The Influence of Faith —If we truly believe a promise of God, then faith influences and motivates us to obey God.
The Influence of Hope —If life is hopeless in our eyes we have nothing to encourage us and keep us going.
The Influence of Fear —The Hebrew writer uses fear, among other things, to motivate Christians to keep obeying God.
The Influence of Love —The Christian walk, our living in obedience to God, is a pathway paved with a special kind of love.
