Joshua 7:19 – Then Joshua said to Achan, “My son, give glory to the Lord, the God of Israel, and honor him. Tell me what you have done; do not hide it from me.” In today’s study, we will examine the words used by Joshua to induce a confession out of Achan, and discover the depth of these words beyond the way they are usually applied in our lives today.

Isaiah 6:5 – “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.” In this study we will meditate on our standard of holiness in comparison to God’s perfect holiness.
1 Corinthians 10:31 – So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. In this study, through the analogy of eating food that has been offered to idols, we will look at the meaning of glorifying God, and how faith, knowledge and freedom wouldn’t work without love.

Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. In this study we will examine the sinful nature of men and how falling short of the glory of God doesn’t mean we cannot glorify the Lord.
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.
