Strong Words

Would people describe you as an "encourager" or a "discourager"? This applies not just to our words, but our disposition and outlook on life. It will determine the type of impact we have on other people--whether we strengthen them personally and spiritually, or cause them to lose hope and feel defeated. In this study, we contrast the illogical "bad" report of the 10 Israelite spies with the ministry of encouragement that Barnabas had in the early church. Seeing the dramatic difference in the results of each one calls us to take intentional steps to be a constant source of encouragement.

Taking Off The Blinders

Recent events in our country have shown that the enemy is making steady progress in normalizing what is abhorrent to the Lord and our faith. Quickly, minds are being conditioned to a "new normal". So as believers, we need a balance of being informed and wise, while also zealously motivated to influence people's lives for Christ. We need to be aware of all that is going on, and get a fresh passion for the calling we've been given. The focus must be on Jesus Christ Alone, and we must persevere even when we people don't give their hearts to Him.

Accepting The Charges

When the apostle Paul wrote to Philemon to appeal for his friend Onesimus, he was careful to make his appeal out of love, not an demand of authority. He affirms that the spiritual transformation that had taken place in Onesimus now made him a brother to them both, which meant that he needed to be seen and treated differently. By reminding Philemon, and us, of the power of forgiveness, the Holy Spirit calls us to examine our relationships, to see where we repent, forgive and refresh each other.

Word On The Street

The apostle Paul wrote a short, very personal letter to a friend he had led to faith in Jesus Christ. He appealed to Philemon to forgive a bondservant who had run away from him. With humility, Paul writes to him as a fellow worker and fellow soldier for the Gospel. It is because of Philemon's spiritual character and reputation as someone who is distinguished for his love and faith that Paul knows his appeal will be heard. Philemon's example as a source of "refreshing" sets a standard for us as believers, and causes us to ask important, direct questions to evaluate how much we are a person who strengthens and encourages others.

The Unexpected Mother

In Genesis 16, a woman named Hagar found herself in a very unfair situation. As the maidservant of Abram's wife Sarai, Hagar was the pawn in Sarai's faithless plan to supersede God's covenant. Hagar's situation teaches us to evaluate the spiritual climate around us. It also shows us that when our faith is being tested, the Lord will minister to us, especially when we go to the "springs and wells" of spiritual refreshing.

When we are weary and exhausted, it's easy to become discouraged and to doubt that we can have victory. Judah experienced that when Assyria was threatening their existence. The Lord confronted their sin, which had caused the problem, and warns them through Isaiah of their coming destruction. But He also graciously promises to ultimatwey change their situation from spiritual wilderness to a place of restoration, refreshing and joy.Psalm 46:10 holds the key for unlocking this in our own lives.

We all face the pressures of everyday responsibilities, and when those are compounded with unexpected problems, our stress can wear us down. But because our Lord is powerful and all sufficient, as believers we should be able to have victory over stress. This study identifies its four causes, in which the Holy Spirit gives us a hidden insight into the real problem. Psalm 46:10 offers the only solution.

Living Like Jesus

When Jesus returned to heaven, He left us a clear example to follow, and the Holy Spirit to give us the power and ability to live like Him. The true test of whether we are living as His disciples is how fully we mirror His life. In this study from three passages in the Gospels, we examine six distinctive attributes of Jesus which should characterize every believer's life. There will be temptations to dissuade us live differently, so we have to ask ourselves challenging questions that cause us to evaluate whether we are really willing to be His disciple.

Leaving Egypt Behind

When Israel left captivity in Egypt to go toward the Promised Land, the timing and the way they did it were spiritually significant. It was the day after Passover, and they walked out in the sight of the Egyptians as they were burying their dead. Those facts kept them humble that the Lord had been the One to deliver them and give them victory. But that didn't last, because the Jews really never left Egypt behind in their hearts. In this study of Numbers 13, we see five important steps we must take to move beyond the sins and heartaches of our past.
