Customers Also Bought Items By
Feeling as if God is absent? Like His presence isn't around and He's gone? The best news in the world is that God's seeming absence doesn't mean He isn't present. Rather, God is always present, working His way in the background of your life to bring His plan to fruition. No Book of the Bible shows this better than the Book of Esther.
The Book of Esther is one of the most fascinating books of the Bible because in all of its words, God's name never appears. That doesn't mean God is absent. Rather, God is ever present, weaving His plan through every part of Esther's narrative. Set at a lavish feast in the Persian Empire and following a beauty contest, you can see how God uses Esther to save an entire nation from annihilation.
This eight-week Bible study from Donna Snow will show you how God is ever-present in your life, no matter the circumstances. With discussion questions at the end of each session, you can dig into this fascinating book of the Bible to start seeing God's presence in His seeming absence, and how He is constantly using you to propel His plan for creation forward.
An eight-week, video-based Bible study on the Book of Nehemiah, Perseverance follows the journey Nehemiah embarked upon when God instructed him to rebuild the destroyed walls around Jerusalem.
What quenches your thirst? Wealth or health? Career or activities? Or do these things still leave you with a certain level of dehydration?
Perhaps right now you’re experiencing a detour through a spiritual desert. Perhaps you see the dry, cracked road ahead and feel like giving up. Perhaps you're new to Christianity and uncertain about how to live your new life in Christ. Take heart.
Jesus offers the goodness and grace that quenches. He shows you the path to streams of living water that will quench your soul’s thirst. He doesn’t care where you’ve been. He doesn’t care what you’ve done. He cares about you.
Jesus is the living water that hydrates from the soul out. He said, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life" (John 4:13–14).
Quenched: Christ’s Living Water for a Thirsty Soul is for both new Christians and Christians going through spiritual dehydration. Author Donna Pyle has been both—new Christian and tired veteran Christian—so she writes from first-hand experience. Her “been-there-done-that” approach to affirmation and encouragement is welcomed by readers feeling confused or ashamed about living out their witness to Christ.
Regardless of the state you're in, you will be lead to the life-giving waters of Christ’s grace, mercy, and hope. Pyle writes with honesty and humor as she points readers to the Gospel message of forgiveness and salvation, and emphasizes that it is only Christ and His grace that quench the parched soul.
Book features include:
- Collection of devotions, prayers, Scripture readings, Psalms, and hymns
- Clear connection to daily life as Christians
- Encouragement and affirmation for new Christians and for Christians going through a time of spiritual dehydration
Eight Lessons about Hope in Christ.
For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. 2 Corinthians 1:5
Life is hard. Really hard for some of us. We suffer, we grow discouraged, we struggle with sin.
But when we view our sufferings from the balcony of faith, we rest in the assurance that God never leaves us unloved or uncared for. His hope is a beacon of comfort.
Over these eight lessons, our journey will take us through a section of Scripture titled “The God of All Comfort,” in 2 Corinthians 1:3–7. The apostle Paul, the author of that letter and an expert when it came to suffering, lends insight and encouragement that God is not blind to our troubles. Along the way, we will meet faith-filled Christians who relied on faith despite their heartache. Through their stories and God’s Word, we will experience the unmistakable handprint of a loving, merciful Savior.
For individuals and small groups, this Bible study offers hope provided by a God who relentlessly pursues us with His ultimate comfort.
Author Donna Pyle shows that forgiving others means recognizing our own sin. It means looking to Jesus and His constant forgiveness toward us. It means sharing that same grace with others. With warmth and honesty, the author draws from her own life experiences and points readers toward Scripture.
