Spiritual Growth Bible Studies
Relating to God is not one size fits all
As believers in Christ, many of us today fall into the trap of thinking we have to approach God in a certain way. This one-size-fits-all mentality typically leaves them feeling frustrated and distant from God. But the truth is that not every person will engage with God in the same way. For this reason, it is important to discover the particular pathway that will best help them to experience God’s presence.
In the Sacred Pathways video-based Bible study, Gary Thomas describes nine spiritual temperaments and—like the Enneagram and other personality assessment tools—provides tools for participants to assess your key pathway and encourages you to investigate the ways you most naturally express yourself in your relationship with God. Thomas will help you discover the traits, strengths, and tendencies in your devotional approach so you can eliminate the barriers that keep you locked into rigid methods of worship and praise.
You're invited on a delectable pilgrimage to discover the secret to savoring every day.
The Psalmist declared, "Taste and see that the Lord is good" (Ps 34:8), so Margaret Feinberg, one of America's most beloved Bible teachers, took the invitation literally. She embarked on a culinary and spiritual adventure that took her far and wide: descending 410 feet into a salt mine, baking fresh matzo at Yale University, harvesting olives off the Croatian coast, and tasting succulent figs at a premier farm--all to discover the truth of God’s goodness.
With each person she encountered, she asked, "How do you read the Scripture in light of what you do every day?" Their answers will change the way you read the Bible forever... and the way you approach every meal. "This is a journey that changed my life, my faith, my future," she writes. "It moved me from fear and uncertainty to discover a renewed, vibrant faith again--and I believe it will do the same for you."
Join Margaret in this deeply nourishing six-week video Bible study sprinkled with step-by-step recipes and biblical insights. After all, it's at the table where we learn to taste and see the goodness of God.
Recognize and resist the three enemies that sabotage your peace
The problem isn’t just that we’ve been told lies; it’s that we end up living them. We are at war. Not with a foreign government, or domestic terrorists, or a creepy new artificial intelligence hell-bent on taking over the world. No, we are at war with something more sinister. As the apostle Paul described it, “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world” (Ephesians 6:12).
Over the centuries, believers in Christ came to recognize these enemies in the spiritual realm as the world, the flesh, and the devil. These enemies employed the strategies of deceptive ideas (the devil), that played to disordered desires (the flesh), that were then normalized in a sinful society (the world). They viewed the Christian life not only as a struggle against these enemies of the soul but as an actual war against foes that sought their destruction.
In this provocative and practical video series, bestselling author John Mark Comer reveals how these enemies of the soul are still at work today. He provides practical tools to help you recognize these enemies, resist the lies they try to make you believe, and experience the peace that God intends you to have—regardless of whatever situations may come your way.
