20 Questions

If you can read 20 Questions, you can lead a Bible Study.

Not sure you know the answer to the questions? No worries.

We provide answers in the form of quotes from people like Charles Swindoll, David Jeremiah, and John Ortberg that will make you sound brilliant.

Why we must discuss

We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. Paul said, “SPEAKING the truth… we grow.” Jesus said it is what comes out of a man that changes him. James said your words are the rudder of your life. Effective teachers lead people to speak the truth, not just hear the truth.

Weary of Struggling to Recruit Teachers?

A common problem in all churches–big churches and little churches–is the need for more workers. Jesus said it would be true. He said, “the harvest is plentiful is but the workers are few.” Question-based Bible Study Lessons makes recruiting teachers a whole lot easier.

Knowing God

“A hundred years from now only a handful of books written today will still be widely read and accepted as Christian classics. Dr. James I. Packer’s Knowing God may well prove to be one of them. A gifted theologian and writer, Dr. Packer has the rare ability to deal with profound and basic spiritual truths in a practical and highly readable way. This book will help every reader grasp in a fuller way one of the Bible’s greatest truths: that we can know God personally, because God wants us to know him.” Billy Graham

The Pursuit of Holiness

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do—and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based lessons have groups talking and changing. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. "Instead SPEAKING the truth (not just hearing the truth) we will grow." Ephesians 4.15

The goal of spiritual growth

THE GOAL OF our spiritual growth is to become more and more like Jesus (see Romans 8:29). We tend to think of this as becoming more like Him in His character, but we need to remember that Jesus came to work—to do the will of the Father. On the eve of His crucifixion, He could say in His prayer, “I have brought you glory on earth...

God’s waiting room

I know what it is like to wait on a vision. Having been in ministry for more than four decades, I’ve had my fair share of the Lord giving me a dream I felt was from Him, only to have it derailed for lengths of time. Even as I write this book, I am in the midst of one of these scenarios. It involves a piece of property God put on...

Changed more by what we say than what we hear

Jesus taught that we are changed as much by what we say as what we hear. Mark 7:15 (NIV) “Nothing outside a man can make him ‘unclean’ by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him ‘unclean.’ ” “What comes out of a man”—what a man speaks is what makes him clean. We are changed by the truth when we speak...

The power of pre-decision

If you were to start applying everything we have discussed so far in making pre-decisions, how might that positively affect your life? Here are three immediate benefits: 1. Pre-Deciding Reduces the Number of Decisions to Make Pre-deciding combats feeling overwhelmed by all of our choices, which can lead to decision fatigue. Steve...

Sanctification by justification

We grow in Christ as we go deeper into, rather than moving on from, the verdict of acquittal that got us into Christ in the first place. It is common in some quarters of the church to think that the message of the gospel initiates us into the Christian life, and then we move on to other strategies when it comes to growing in...

Shadow Christians do the dirty work.

Someone has to change nasty diapers and clean up vomit. When our children were younger, we had our share of handling both eruptions. My wife is a supermom (and an early childhood education specialist) who loves preschool children and probably knows as much about them as anyone. Even so, for some reason, vomit was her Kryptonite....

Worn out? Confused? Afraid

if you’re worn-out, confused, afraid, or a bit paranoid about what others are saying about you; if you’re angry, bitter, lonely, or misunderstood; when your anger makes it clear that your way isn’t working, I urge you to ask yourself a vital question: Am I humble enough to address the cracks? In Genesis 4, God puts a heavy hand...

Famous Last Words

For every person, there will come a last meal, a last breath, and of course, a last statement. And in many ways, what we say in the end is a real insight into what we were in life, what we stood for, and indeed what we lived for. Generally, we die as we have lived. I read about a man who had been very successful in the restaurant...

Thinking deeply about the love of Christ

The first three chapters have primarily been laying the foundation—Jesus Christ’s fullness (chap. 1), our emptiness (chap. 2), and our union with him (chap. 3). Now we begin to get into the actual dynamics by which believers change. We begin with the love of God. My first challenge is not, however, to convince you that God loves...
