Item description for Life Principles for Following Christ: Twelve Portraits of Our Savior (Following God Character #3) by Richard Shepherd...
Overview Encouraging and equipping women to minister to other women...
Titus 2:3-5 tells us that older women should lead by example while teaching younger women to live exemplary lives inside and outside their homes. Woman to Woman: Life Principles from Titus 2 is a twelve-week Following God Bible study that takes the outline given in Titus 2 and searches other scriptures to find specific direction and guidelines as to how mature women in the faith can minister to other women. The purpose of the book is to provide a resource for women who desire to minister to others. It is designed to encourage and equip women to speak truth to those who are younger (both spiritually and chronologically), breaking through barriers in order to deal with difficult questions women face in the 21st century.
Rather than offering another set of answers from one woman's perspective, this study takes each woman to passages of Scripture, helping her discover what God is saying to her personally, without skirting the deeper issues. As with all books in the Following God line of Bible study products, Woman to Woman is ideal for small group discussions. The first four lessons look at the four qualifications for women in ministry: a priestly lifestyle, a commitment to confidentiality, freedom from addictions, and an appreciation for beauty and the ability to teach it. Younger women may take this study to learn what they are to seek in an older woman mentor and how to be better prepared to minister to others. Each of the remaining lessons take one of the topics Paul identifies in his letter to Titus as being important for women and seeks to develop a biblical foundation for understanding and training.
Publishers Description How Do You Visualize Christ? When we think of Jesus Christ, we conjure up different images. Sometimes we see Christ as a sacrificial lamb, while at other times we see him as the conquering King of kings, the great I AM Sometimes, we see Jesus as the gentle master-teacher or Rabbi, while other images picture a warrior ready to do battle with His enemies. Life Principles for Following Christ looks at Christ in both the Old and New testament (paradoxes and all) and shows how Scriptures unveils a complete portrait of rare value, a picture of God Himself, revealing His holiness, His love, His power, and His awesome plans and purpose for man. This latest installment in the Following God line of Bible studies can be seen as a collection of twelve portraits of Christ- portraits that reveal Jesus in His multifaceted Glory, view Him in His magnificent beauty, and allow us to experience Him in the magnitude of His Power. Each portrait expresses something unique about His person and His work. Each conveys an avenue of worship and surrender, a point of love and adoration, and a path of obedience to follow. In the pages of this book, you will find answers to such questions as: * What was God's purpose in creating mankind in the first place? What role does Christ play in this purpose? * For what purposes did the Angel of the Lord appear in the Old testament? What does the occasional, ancient appearance of this "Angel" have to do with Jesus of Nazareth? * Are you looking to God as your Prophet, Priest, and King? * Christ is pictured in various scriptures as the "Lamb of God." What does the picture of a lowly lamb have to do with the purposes and plans of God? How can God be the lamb and the Good Shepherd at the same time? * What role did prayer play in Christ's earthly ministry? How does the praying ministry of Christ affect us today?
