- Verses 17-21. When confronted by the adverse influences of the world, what are we to do, and what will God do, to maintain our spiritual development?
- What should our attitude be as Christens to those around us who may be going astray, and what to the sin that has corrupted them?
- What may we learn from verses 24, 25 concerning the grounds of our confidence, the source of our joy, and the object of our aspirations? What should such awareness move us to do?
