JACOB - God Never Gives Up on You by Max Lucado

God Never Gives Up on You: What Jacob’s Story Teaches Us About Grace, Mercy, and God’s Relentless Love

What Jacob's story teaches us about grace, mercy, and God's relentless love

God enacts his perfect plan through imperfect people—including you and me!

In this five-session Bible study, you will see how God used Jacob—the misbehaving patriarch who was strong on savvy but weak on conscience—simply because God chose to use Jacob. His story invites us to believe in a God who sticks with the unworthy until we are safely at home. God turns brokenness into blessings through his grace, mercy, and relentless love. Not just for Bible characters, but for you. God Never Gives Up on YOU.

DAVID - Chase by Jennie Allen

Chase Bible Study Guide: Chasing After the Heart of God

David's life shatters our ideas of what God wants from us. In Chase, Jennie shows us a man who spent his life chasing after God, which points to several things we shouldn't be chasing:

  • Don't chase self-worth by achieving more
  • Don't chase freedom by protecting yourself
  • Don't chase approval by being moral
  • Don't chase satisfaction by rebelling
  • Don't chase fulfillment. Chase God!

Whether you're running from God or working your tail off to please him, David's journey will challenge your view of God. He is the only thing we can chase that won't leave us feeling more empty.

DAVID - Goliath Must Fall by Louie Giglio

Goliath Must Fall: Winning the Battle Against Your Giants

Fear. Rejection. Addiction. Anger. Comfort...Must Fall. 

It’s likely you have a threatening giant in your life…an adversary or stronghold that’s diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, we lose sight of the promise God has for our lives. Demoralized and defeated, we settle for far less than his best. God has a better plan for you, a plan for you to live in victory.

In this six-session video Bible study, Pastor Louie Giglio reveals a twist in the story of David and Goliath that will help you and your study group see how God works victories in the lives of his people.

ELIJAH - Out of the Cave by Chris Hodges

Out of the Cave: How Elijah Embraced God’s Hope When Darkness Was All He Could See

How Elijah embraced God's hope when darkness was all he could see

Even when we're walking closely with God, we can still stumble and get lost in the wilderness of tangled emotions, loneliness, and depression. In this five-session video Bible study, pastor Chris Hodges explores the story of the prophet Elijah to reveal how everyone is susceptible to feelings of depression. But Elijah's story also reveals that we don't have to stay there! We serve a God who meets us in the darkness.

Drawing on his trademark blend of Bible-based wisdom, practical application, and personal vulnerability, Pastor Hodges will help you examine the causes of depression, the factors that contribute to it, and offer you a biblical approach to wellness—mind, body, and soul.
