Ephesians - The Church: Rooted in Love, Walking in Power (Precept Study)
Chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, targeted by grace, children of God united in a single family, inheritors, holy, redeemed, forgiven, raised from the dead and seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenlies! How can you not study Ephesians!? Before Paul even hints at how believers should live, he lays a rock-solid foundation: who we are in Christ!

Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl
by Lysa Terkeurst, President of Proverbs 31 Ministries
How might our lives look if we were so filled with God's truths we could let go of the pain of our past, not get tripped up by the troubles of today, or consumed by worries about tomorrow? It's impossible when we try to make it happen on our own by doing more good Bible study girl things like praying, reading the Bible or going to church. But going through the motions of these activities will not fill our souls. True fulfillment is never found in seeking to do enough, be enough, have enough, know enough or accomplish enough. We will be setting our hearts and minds on God and letting Him change us, rearrange us and redirect us to live out the message of Christ.

James, a “bondservant” of Jesus Christ, sets out to instruct us about how faith should “look” in real life. In this epistle, he gives us many wise words of useful instruction. Yet the truths of his words are still so powerful that they will wake and shake believers from all backgrounds and cultures who have “ears to hear” them carefully. This book gives Christians practical guidance on how we can live for Him.
