These nine studies on people who struggle with faith and on the teachings of faithful people will encourage you in your journey to deeper trust.
Getting the Most Out of Faith
This section introduces the topic, explains the structure followed in each study and offers tips for those approaching the study on their own as well as those participating in a group.
In Praise of Faith
The letter to the Hebrews was written by an unknown Christian to a group of persecuted Jewish Christians, people who needed to have their faith affirmed and strengthened. When have you wished you had more faith?
Abraham: Faith Under Construction
God's call to Abraham was definite and understandable. When have you made a major change because you believed the Lord wanted you to, and how did you know what God was asking you to do?
Righteousness by Faith
Why might it be easier, or at least seem easier, to work toward righteousness by being a good person than to accept God's righteousness in Christ?
Naaman: Faith Without Fireworks
In what areas of your life do you think God waits for you to take a small step of obedience, so he can show you that he is truly God?
2 Kings 5:1-15
Faith Without Action
Have you ever bragged about something when it was not quite true? Why did you exaggerate? James warned early Christian believers to match their words with action.
David: Faith That Worships
The Lord says through the prophet Nathan that the temple would not be built in David's time but would be built by his son. What is a severe disappointment you have experienced? How did it affect your relationship with God?
2 Samuel 7:18-29
The Focus of Faith
In our race of faith, how might we be distracted by the other runners? Why does keeping our eyes on Jesus help us to run with perseverance?
In Jesus' Name: Faith That Asks
Jesus made it clear that asking in his name means more than just ending a prayer with the words "in Jesus name, amen." What do you think he means by "ask in my name"? Why is joy a logical result of asking in Jesus' name?
The Finale of Faith
Paul's second letter to Timothy is probably the last letter he wrote. If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say about your faith?
2 Timothy 4:6-18
