Called for a PurposeThe letters of Peter and Jude challenge you to recognize your identity as a chosen friend of God--and therefore, to live a holy life. Originally addressed to persecuted believers of the first century, these words encourage you to face trials with a living hope, certain of Christ's return, and warn you of the danger of false teaching and spiritual lethargy--advice as timely today as it was for the early Christians. If you are serious about understanding God's purpose for you, you've come to the right place. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Living on Solid GroundMost couples struggle at some point in their relationship with hard questions of marriage and family life, such as, what is God's primary purpose for marriage? What does it mean for a man to be the head of a home? Is divorce ever acceptable? How do we raise children who will love God? What does God have to say about the way we communicate, or about sexual intimacy?Authors Steve and Dee Brestin have wrestled with these questions in their own marriage and have found that God's Word is the only reliable blue-print for marriage and family life. This study will guide you through the encouragement that the Bible gives for those relationships. Jesus told us the storms will come and batter our homes, but if we obey him, our house will stand firm.
To be rich in friends is true wealth! These studies focus on the treasure of good relationships. Here you will find vivid profiles of friends in the Bible like Jonathan and David, Ruth and Naomi, Barnabas, Abraham, and Jesus-the preeminent Friend and Brother.
This study guide is designed to help you in your walk toward Christian maturity. If you are hungering and thristing, you are already on the threshold of higher ground.
