Psalm 103:10 – he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. In this study we will look at the grace and mercy God has for us despite our iniquities.
Luke 6:37 – Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. In this study, we will examine the relationship between judging, condemning, and the need of forgiving; with particular focus on the virtue of forgiveness.
Acts 7:60 – Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep. Stephen is recognised as the first Christian martyr, and through this verse we’ll examine the idea of grace and forgiveness, and discuss a little about martyrdom.
Romans 12:14 – Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. Through a series of examples, we will examine the mentality of blessing your enemies. And attempt to, in brief, look at the reasons we should adopt this mentality too.
Job 1:5 tells us more about Job before his tragedy and why he was considered to be upright and blameless. We will study about his regular prayers of intercession for his children, and why that was important.
