Does what we believe about God, who He is, and how He works really matter in our lives? Not just yes, but absolutely yes! What we believe about God shapes our attitudes, determines our behavior, and fosters our motivations. For instance, if I believe that God is sovereign – that He has control over everything in this world – then I don’t have to fear the outcome of world events or events in my own life because I know that He is working in and through it all for His purposes.
All month long here at Scripture Dig we’ve been digging into doctrine. We examined Scripture to see what we should believe about God. Today, I want to share a resource with you that can help you use doctrine to build a faith strong enough to weather every storm of life. Unshakeable Faith is an 8-session Bible study that examines the life and teachings of Peter. God grew Peter from a fearful believer that denied Christ to a bold, fearless believer who was willing to die for his faith.
Unshakeable Faith discovers those faith characteristics God built into Peter’s life that helped him stand firm even in the face of martyrdom.
Over the last few years, many Christian women I love and admire have endured difficult circumstances such as life-threatening illness, divorce, death of a child, and financial hardship. The quality of their faith significantly affected how they endured these trials and how God worked in them for His glory. God strengthened and guided them through their close relationship with Jesus. This book includes some of their stories. Readers get to see how their faith keeps them standing firm.
A strong faith in Jesus Christ does work in real life!
This study also focuses on personal application. Learning about God, His ways, and what He desires for us is wonderful. But if we don’t apply what He teaches us, let it shape our lives, we fall short of the full purpose of study. Unshakeable Faith not only leads readers into learning God’s Word, but it also purposefully helps readers apply it. Doctrine – what we believe about God – does matter in our daily lives.
Is your faith strong enough to stand firm in trials? Do you want a faith that is truly unshakeable?
The study is available at most online bookstores and many Christian bookstores. If your local bookstore does not carry it more than likely they can order it for you. You can read a little more about the study on my website. Here are a few links to online stores.
