  2. Why do you think following God is compared to walking in the light? (see Feb. 2) How do you know if you are in darkness or light?
  3. What is the relationship between love and obedience in our Christian walk? Can you love God and not obey Him? Why or why not? (see Feb. 5)
  4. If you were to write a letter to a younger believer, what would you say?  What advice would you give? (see Feb. 7)
