Living sacrifices – A cloud of witnesses series Book 3

R65.57

Just like the very first believers, we are trying to figure out how to live like people knowing Jesus. There are so many voices influencing us, and we do not always know what we should do. This study follows the approach of the writer to the Hebrews, who encourages us to ‘fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith’. He also reminds us that we may draw encouragement from the ‘cloud of witnesses’ by looking at their lives, searching for evidence of God at work, and seeking to learn more about God and how to live for Him. May the Lord bless you and reveal Himself to you while you are studying the lives of these biblical and post-biblical characters. May you be freed to love God and others. These studies are best suited for use by groups of 8 to 10 people. The questions included are intended to stimulate discussion.
