Galatians 3:4 – Have you suffered so much for nothing—if it really was for nothing? In this study we will examine how suffering for Christ’s cause isn’t for nothing – but we may be tempted into making them for nothing by turning our backs to the true gospel.
1 Chronicles 16:11 – Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. In this study we will examine the reasons why we should always seek God’s presence, in reference to the events that led to the return of the ark of covenant in the Old Testament.
John 10:10 – The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. In this study we will examine the analogy of the thief in Christ’s admonition against the false teachers.
1 Timothy 4:12 – Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. In this study we will look at how these 5 things work together to help us lead an exemplary life, both to the young and to the older.
Proverbs 3:34 – He mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble. In this study we will examine what are some of the characteristics of a proud person, and in contrast, the characteristics of a humble person.
Zephaniah 3:17 – The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. In this study we will examine how important it is to recognise God’s mightiness and how we can then take comfort in his presence.
1 Corinthians 13:12 – For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. In this study we will examine the metaphor in this verse and how it applies to issues like knowledge and love and eternity.
Romans 1:20 – For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. In God’s creations since the beginning of time his power and divinity has been proven – we cannot be justified in refuting him.
Psalm 139:7 – Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? In this verse David exalts the omnipresence of God, and in this study we will examine the ways that we can possibly be separated from God, and how all these are rendered useless in front of the omnipresent God.
Isaiah 53:5 – But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. It was a prophecy that comforted the people in a time of immense suffering, but today, after the prophecy is fulfilled, we can still look back on this verse and marvel at the Messiah.
John 3:30 – He must become greater; I must become less. John the Baptist was very clear about his role and his identity as a forerunner for Christ. His humility and his love for the Lord will be examined in this study.
