Each of us has a "budget" of 186 hours this week. If we don't spend them wisely, it can greatly affect us spiritually and personally. Looking at the pivotal decision of 6 important Biblical figures, this study shows the sharp contrast between using our time poorly and using it wisely and productively.

That's What I Said!

The Bible calls the tongue "a restless evil, able to defile the entire body". Though we might think that we only say damaging words when our emotions are heightened, it is far too common to say what is "unwholesome". Every word that proceeds from our mouth is a choice made by our mind. Ephesians 4 calls us to say only what is pure, edifying and full of grace, because our words reveal our heart and represent how full we are of the Spirit. And we need Him to do daily surgery on our communication.

Everybody's A Critic

We all struggle to deal with the impact of a critical spirit. As recipients, we feel discouraged and defeated, and as the source of criticism, we can get stuck in a chronically negative attitude. Christians should not be characterized by a critical, judgmental mindset. We have to move beyond a preoccupation with self, and ask the Holy Spirit to change a mindset of dissatisfaction and fault-finding, and fill us with love.

Get Up!

The Lord gives believers power to actively advance in maturity, so when He opens doors of opportunity, we need to go forward. Inactivity inhibits growth and usefulness, while advancing brings discernment and blessing. This is shown in the example of Peter in Acts 12, when the Lord miraculously releases him from jail, so the work of ministry can continue. It reveals that the Lord is ready to do greater things than we can imagine, when we get up and get moving.

It's All In Your Head

Our mind is a place of great conflict, battling between holy and unholy thoughts. This determines how feel and function, especially spiritually. In Romans 12, Paul calls us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, which only takes place when we passionately and purposely develop and nurture what brings spiritual life. We have to understand what the voices in our mind are leading us to believe and do, and capture the ones that are enticing us to rebel against God. The Lord is far more powerful than any problems we have, so when we are intentional about abiding in spiritual renewal, He gives us victory.

The Great Beyond

In the middle of Ephesians, between praise of Jesus Christ and the Gospel, and a call to live sanctified lives, there is a powerful promise of the unlimited potential of God's work. This is available to anyone who trusts Jesus as Savior and is walking in the power and leading of the indwelling Holy Spirit. But we need to be careful not to "quench" the fire of His work, because the Lord is able and ready to work in ways that are far beyond our expectations. In the first study of our new series, we are called to a fresh faith about the great potential of God's plans.

The wise men are unexpected participants in the Christmas account--they weren't Jewish, didn't have any connection to anything surrounding Jesus, and didn't have a vision prior to arriving in Bethlehem. But their hearts were stirred, and that brought them to find Jesus, Whom they fell to the ground and worshiped. Their sensitivity to God and obedience provide a strong example to us about getting clarity from Him about our future and being willing to take heavenly detours to be in His plan.

The message the angels gave in announcing Jesus' birth addressed all the problems of mankind: Fear, lack of hope and joy and peace, and the need for a Saviour. Every person needs true peace, but man's solutions to find it all fail miserably. So Jesus came to be peace and bring peace...but why is He the Only One Who can provide it? This study examines 5 convincing truths which verify that because Jesus came here to be "God with us", He is the only way to salvation and peace.

Unexpected, But Wonderful

Many Christians have little sense of God's calling and little expectation of being used in a significant way. Every believer has a general calling to be witnesses and make disciples, and a specific calling unique to them. But do we understand and embrace it, especially when it changes our plans and requires deep trust? Both Joseph and Mary exemplify an immediate willingness to follow God's calling, despite the huge challenges and changes that presented. They show that God can use anyone in a significant way, and their joy and peace shows that living in God's will is the ultimate place of contentment.
