As always, thank you for your support of Our prayer for you in 2009 is taken from The Message, 1 Thessalonians 1:11–13.

May God our Father himself and our Master Jesus clear the road to you! And may the Master pour on the love so it fills your lives and splashes over on everyone around you, just as it does from us to you. May you be infused with strength and purity, filled with confidence in the presence of God our Father.

Have a blessed New Year, everyone.

10. Seeing Christ in the Jewish Feasts
Bible Study Course
Many of us do not understand the history and traditions of Jewish holidays, even though several of the stories are found in our Old Testament. Download this six-session course to learn about Jewish Feast Days, and how they are relevant to the New Testament and our faith today.

9. The Songs of Advent
Study Through the Bible Course
As familiar as we are with the songs of Christmas, there are four songs recorded in the Bible to celebrate the birth of Jesus that most of us aren't familiar with. Download this four-session course to learn more about the angels, Mary, Simeon, and Zechariah.

8. Expectant Prayer
Current Issues Bible Study
In this article, a skeptical professor receives a more powerful and challenging response to prayer than he had ever experienced before. This study asks: What should we expect when we pray? What should we pray about? What responsibilities remain on us? This compelling Bible study has remained on our Top 10 list for two years running.

7. Confronting Sexual Addiction
Bible Study Course
According to a recent poll on, nearly 80% of you struggle with a sexual addiction or some other negative form of escape. Addiction was a more popular topic across the site than even we could have anticipated, but we're encouraged at the numbers seeking help. It is our prayer that you continue to bring these struggles to the light and find healing in Christ. Perhaps this three-session course will help you or someone you know.

6. Liturgy for Lent—Even if You're Non-Liturgical
Current Issues Bible Study
Even if liturgy has not been part of your tradition, you can learn from its practice. This practical Bible study follows the biblical history of spiritual disciplines and includes a Scripture reading plan for Lent (which begins February 25!) and a helpful article from Leadership journal.

5. 1 Peter—Walk the Talk
Study through the Bible Course
If you are going to carry Christ's name by telling someone you are a Christian, then surely you should reflect his nature. Transformation—the process of becoming holy—begins in your mind. This seven-session course shows how the apostle Peter challenges us to think differently, which will radically affect our behavior.
