Ten Women of the Bible

Release Date: 2016-05-03
Genre: Religion

We don’t even know all their names. Some are referred to only by their nationality. Some are known only by the place where they lived. Some would become queens, while others would live on the fringes of society. One would give birth to a nation, and one would give birth to the Messiah. Their culture often overlooked or discounted the contributions of women, yet the writers of Scripture found these women and the role they played remarkable to the telling of God's story. As we study the lives of the women in the Bible, we find important truths that God wants us to grasp. They lived in a different world than our own, but we find ourselves facing the same issues they faced. Yet even more, these women show us there is a God who sees us where we are and loves us for who we are. He is the one who hovers over all the pages of the Bible, shaping lives, rescuing hearts, healing sicknesses, raising what was dead to life, and assigning high callings to those who choose to follow him and have faith in him. In this 10-session workbook, Max Lucado tells some of his favorite accounts of these ten women—Sarah, Abigail, Esther, the Samaritan Woman, Mary Magdalene, and others—and describes what set them all apart. EACH SESSION INCLUDES 50 in-depth Bible studies to help you navigate the stories in Scripture Daily points to remember to help you summarize the key points Daily prayers to help you focus your thoughts and move into your quiet time Weekly memory verses to help you hide God's word in your heart Additional notes to help you lead a group through the study Ten Women of the Bible is ideal for both individual use and for study in a small-group setting.

Abigail s Story

Author: Sarah Young
Publisher: WestBow Press
ISBN: 9781490893297
Release Date: 2015-09-16
Genre: Religion

As we navigate the challenging issues and complicated relationships in our lives today, it is essential that we seek the Lord’s face or we may be tempted to respond with indifference, fear, or isolation. It is also helpful to consider the godly role models God has given us in the Bible. Abigail’s Story reveals a woman who responded with strength and faith even as she encountered some very difficult circumstances. The humility of her heart provides a beautiful example. Her sacrificial service makes a powerful impression. And the depth of her trust in God is infectious as we press on to become women of strength and faith. Through her experience, we see God’s complete provision for answering his call to significant ministry and responsibility. This study of Abigail also explores how her character qualities and actions originate from the very heart of God. Highlighting this reality should encourage us to delight in making him known through our daily walk, as well. Examining the evidence of God’s unconditional love, sovereign purpose, and faithful presence in Abigail’s life should strengthen our own faith and trust in Him. And finally, following Abigail’s example should infuse us with confidence as we interact in a needy culture and face an unknown future, knowing we serve a God who is alive and in control.

Everything You Need to Know in Life, You Can Learn Here! When we were in kindergarten, half the fun of living was breaking the rules without getting caught. In real adult life, however, there is nothing fun about broken promises, relationships, or hearts. In this DVD and study guide from North Point Resources, Andy Stanley explains God’s set of life rules that can improve current relationships and mend broken ones. Every game requires parameters, and in this lifelong journey toward heaven, it’s never too late to learn, relearn, and follow the rules God clearly outlines for His people…because they set you on the course for success! Winners Play by the Rules In kindergarten, ignoring the rules was a blast—especially if you could get away with it. But as adults, we understand that rules are for our protection, and that when we break God’s rules we cause heartache and broken relationships. Designed for small group or personal use, this companion study guide to the Life Rules DVD clearly explains God’s basic set of life rules which, when lived, hold the power to improve all your relationships. It’s never too late to learn and follow the parameters God clearly outlines for His people. This study guide is complete with a leader’s guide and six lessons, including easy-to-do exercises and discussion questions.

Made to Crave Devotional

Author: Lysa TerKeurst
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 9780310334729
Release Date: 2012-01-21
Genre: Religion

Last year, author Lysa TerKeurst released the book Made to Crave, providing the Biblical answer to why people diet, regain the weight they lose, and continue to find themselves stuck in this vicious cycle. Made to Crave helped thousands of people finally achieve victory in their weight loss journey. But, according to TerKeurst, “We need more than 19 chapters to stay motivated and on track. That’s why I wrote this daily devotional with 60 inspirational entries. There is plenty of new material not in the original book. Rest assured, I also included your favorite nuggets of wisdom from Made to Crave.” Just like the Made to Crave book, this Made to Crave Devotional is not a how-to get healthy book. It is the road to finding the lasting ‘want to’ that extends far beyond the surface issues of weighing less and wanting to wear a smaller clothes size. Says TerKeurst: “There’s a spiritual battle going on. It’s real. And it’s amazing how perfectly the Bible gives us specific ways to find victory with our food struggles. “Even for girls who don’t crave carrots.“

Bombarded by one celebrity help-the-world-athon after another, we shrug our shoulders in futility and do absolutely nothing. Enter She Did What She Could. Based on the woman who anointed Jesus’ feet with expensive perfume in Mark 14, She Did What She Could provides overwhelmed, yet service-seeking, significance-starved readers a realistic response to the seemingly unmeetable needs around us. Now includes the She Did What She Could Study Guide, formerly available separately as ISBN 9781615215799.
