Purpose: We are embarked on a spiritual journey, perhaps best described by the development of our relationship with God our Creator.
This class carefully studies the scriptures to find out who God the Father is and how this shapes His purposes and involvement in our lives. Come and get to know God more as we study God's attributes and characteristics!
It is the fullness of God: all His wondrous love, power and wisdom that continually fills me with awe and delight.
Gain and develop a personal relationship with God (1 John 1:3-4)
I have trouble enough getting to know people. How can I get to know God? I can’t see Him. I can’t even hear Him. And even if I could meet Him, how would I know I would want to meet up with Him?
Are all the religions the same? Do they all lead to the same goal? God interrupts this line of thinking by giving us a clear picture of who He is and His special unique character. We better all be glad He is who He says he is.
A lot of people have a problem with evil as if it all came from God. We need to work out things a bit clearer here. Instead we find that God is always good even through the difficult times in life.
Did you ever stare into the bright sun? We just can’t do that. God’s holiness is like that. God is light and with our impurity, we just can’t approach Him. Fortunately, God came up with a terrific plan to bridge this otherwise impossible gap.
Did you ever feel powerless? Join the club! Actually, we were never meant to be able to solve all our problems. As God’s children, it is wonderful to know someone who really cares for us and is fully in charge.
Did you ever feel all alone? Maybe in danger or in a dark place? Actually, you were not alone, were you? God is everywhere all the time. Learn more what this practically means to our lives.
We are not very good at giving God the glory. Why? Because we cannot grasp how great God is. We think far too much of our own accomplishments without understanding His part in our lives. Life gets awesome when we begin to understand and respond to His glorious person.
Most of us have a problem with consistency. Part of the problem is our inability to control life’s details. Another part is our problem with our uncertainty, ignorance and wavering on personal issues. It is a good thing God is not like that less we would perish.
Our biggest problem is not knowing how to make the best decisions but to know and understand Him who perfectly understands things! We need to master hearing from God if we are going to successfully live out our lives.
Why is it so hard to forgive others? It would seem that we never made a mistake! But God is perfect. Why is he so kind and forgiving? We seem to be missing something big here.
Did you ever wonder why God hasn’t judged the wicked earlier on? If you happened to meet up with some unjust situation, you might wonder whether God is in the driver’s seat. He is, but we just do not quite understand how He carries out justice and how true justice requires severe judgment.
God is love. We all love to say it, but how many of us are really convinced of our Lord’s deep, constant and rich love? Probably not too many of us. We seem to doubt His love more than be strengthened by it. Let’s take a look at God’s transforming love.
Is it so bad that God is in control? People, including many believers, have such a hard time accepting God’s sovereignty. Perhaps, we just like to think we control our lives and decisions. We want our rights, freedom, choices. This doesn’t make God any less in charge though. We better learn how Jesus mastered trusting God’s sovereign will even when things got tough.
Knowing and carrying out God’s will can be rather confusing! How do we really know what God wants? Even more basic, is God really in control of all the things, big and small, that I meet up with in life?
