From the Editor: Faith that Is Active

In a recent blog post, General Editor Dr. Ronnie Floyd talked about the difference between “passive faith” and active faith: There are many who claim Christ in the same way they claim to be fans of a particular sports team. They are “Christian” because they are not Muslim, Hindu, or Atheist. There’s got to be […]

From the Editor: The Focus of Our Faith

From the Editor: Our God is Faithful


Our prayer, as many of you conclude the six session study Beyond Belief: Exploring the Character of God this week, is that you have discovered or been reminded of the amazing, rich character of the God we serve. He is holy, loving, just, forgiving, and wise. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to attempt to […]

From the Editor: Seeking the Wisdom of God


Session 5 of  Beyond Belief: Exploring the Character of God  is called “God is Wise.” Who doesn’t need wisdom in their lives? Every day, over four billion online searches are made.

From the Editor: 4 Reminders to Keep Us Expressing Hope


  Pete Wilson, the writer of the Let Hope In Bible study, says, We may not be ungrateful, but we can forget to be grateful. We get used to the things we’ve been given, and we begin to take them for granted. Believers can do that in their relationship with Christ. The longer we have […]

From the Editor: Our Hope is a Person


As many of you prepare for Session 3 of the “Let Hope In” study (Session 10 if you are using Bible Studies For Life: Senior Adults or Bible Studies For Life: Adults, King James Version), you already know the theme for the session is “Hope Personified,” and that it looks at one of Jesus’ best-known […]

From the Editor: Thanking God For Rest


We wrap up our “Productive” study with a session about rest. The Point of the session is, “Rest is a gift from God for His glory and our benefit.” We know that one of the 10 Commandments is “Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.” So what does that mean? Does it just mean […]
