Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. Peter, a man of faith and flaws and an eyewitness to the life of Christ, challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. In 1 Peter, he shares his concerns about big picture issues for the early believers, reminding them of the living hope they have in Christ. Peter describes our true identity as believers and points us to humility and submission.

How are the people in the Church to behave? What happens when we hear teaching that is not the truth? Timothy, a young Pastor was told the answers to these questions in a letter written to him. It contains some doctrine, but also very practical instructions for how people in the Church are to live godly lives. From family to finances, prayer to leadership, Paul walks through several facets of life and discusses how to go about them in godly ways.

Max Lucado’s Life Lessons from Acts is a 12-session study for groups or individuals. In the book of Acts you’ll see that the men you read about in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John have been transformed. They may still look the same and have the same mannerisms, but with the Holy Spirit indwelling them, they are not the same and because they are different, so is the world. They founded the early Church and gave us a legacy of faith.

Miracles of Jesus explores all four Gospels with teaching from Jennie Allen, Bianca Juárez Olthoff, Jada Edwards, and Sadie Robertson. Discover the ways Jesus healed, provided for, calmed, and resurrected the people he encountered. This seven-session study is about believing in the power of God who can accomplish anything. There’s nothing too big or too small for us to bring to him.
When we take time to learn about the overflowing kindness Jesus demonstrated to all kinds of people through miracles during his time on earth, we realize that he is radically generous, compassionate, and honoring toward all people. As you watch teaching from the places in Israel where Jesus performed miracles and dig into God’s Word, you will end the study in awe of the Messiah who relentlessly seeks, saves, and restores us.

You Are Christ’s Beloved

John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of His ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom. John was there when Jesus turned the water to wine, offered living Water to the woman at the well, yielded to His Father’s will in the garden of Gethsemane, and gave His life on a Roman cross. And one unforgettable morning young John outran Peter to his Savior’s empty tomb.

Yet God had more in store for the Son of Thunder. As the other disciples were martyred one by one, John remained to write his sublime Gospel proclaiming Jesus’ identity as the eternal Word of God. In his three letters John left a legacy of divine love to ignite the passion of future believers. And while exiled on Patmos, John recorded His risen Lord’s glorious revelation of victory and hope.

John referred to himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” Just as Christ took John on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, He will do the same for you. The Bridegroom’s love is unmatched and inexhaustible, and He is waiting to lavish it on you, His beloved.
