“The Discipline of Grace”

From the best-selling author of The Pursuit of Holiness comes a thought-provoking look at legalism, discipleship, and spiritual freedom. Learn how grace and holiness are linked—and how the same mercy that leads believers to Christ also develops us spiritually in the areas of commitment, conviction, choices, watchfulness, and adversity.
 
“Our worst days are never so bad that you are beyond grace.
And your best days are never so good
that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.”
~Jerry Bridges

“Truthfilled

A study on Colossians 

(child care provided)

 

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” —Colossians 3:16a

Many of us want God’s Word to dwell richly in us, but life can get in the way. 

We’d never intentionally write chapters of confusion, failure, loss, pain, conflict, or suffering into our stories. No one plans to wrestle with her identity in Christ, to struggle to love her husband, to feel lonely in ministry, or to feel helpless in motherhood. Yet we often find ourselves in these seasons, struggling to embrace the gospel hope we need to fill our discouraged souls. 

Join Ruth Chou Simons in this 7-session study of the Book of Colossians as she leads us through a practice of preaching gospel truth to ourselves by studying Paul’s example. In every changing season of life, we can rest in God’s character, rehearse our identity in Christ, respond in faith, and remember God’s provision for us. In today’s culture, there’s no shortage of self help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.

Features:

  • Leader helps to guide questions and discussions within small groups
  • Personal study segments to complete between 7 weeks of group sessions
  • Beautiful full-color interior to enhance user experience
  • Scripture recommendations to help you preach truth to yourself

Benefits:

  • Trade the lies found in culture, our minds, and our hearts for the truth of God’s Word.
  • Experience a beautiful, accessible theology.
  • Understand how to apply Scripture to your own life.
