Discussion-based Lessons

The tools God uses to change us

The first tool God uses in changing us is the Bible. Through Scripture he teaches us how to live. Second Timothy 3:16 – 17 tells us, “The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in...

SPIRITUAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT

We believe that what you can't change what you don't measure. Discipleship is a lifelong process of becoming who God has called us to be. Throughout life we enter into different stages with varying struggles, trials, and temptations. It's easy to focus on those...

Evangelicals are thriving, Stetzer says

Is the Church Dying?

Poor Chicken Little. She freaked out about nearly everything and cried constantly about the apocalyptic doom that was going to rain down upon everyone’s heads, literally.1 But in reality, the sky wasn’t falling at all. It was just an acorn submitting to the everyday...

No neutral ground

King Asa brought massive reform throughout Judah. Until in the fifteenth year of his reign he led his people into a commitment to seek God—with dire consequences for any who refused (see 2 Chronicles 15:10-15). The Kingdom of God doesn’t offer any neutral ground....

What to do when you are in Jam

King Asa of Judah was in a jam. With the armies of Israel bearing down on him from the north, Asa formed a hasty alliance with the godless Syrians. From a purely human standpoint it might have been his best move. From heaven’s vantage point it was an act of...

Why Lord?

Throughout the book of Psalms in the Old Testament, we find David lamenting, “Hey God, what’s the deal? How come the wicked are prospering and I’m getting a raw deal? I don’t understand it, and I’m really upset. You anointed me king, but now I’m catching spears from...

How Can I Handle Discouragement?

If you were asked to name the world’s deadliest disease, what would be your answer? Cancer? Polio? MS? AIDS? You probably wouldn’t say discouragement. You might not even think of discouragement as a deadly disease, but it is. And it is more common than any of those...

How to be happy — Randy Alcorn
