Help Is Here Study Guide plus Streaming Video
The Holy Spirit is a mystery to many of us today. We understand the nature and character of God the Father. We have no problem comprehending Jesus as the Son. But the Holy Spirit? We tend to hem, haw, and search for words when trying to describe him and the work he does in our lives. Perhaps some of the challenge is found in the terms. We understand God as a Father. Jesus as a Son. But God as Spirit? The word itself is mystical. In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado pulls back the curtain on the third member of Trinity. He shows how Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to his disciples because they needed to be equipped for the work he had in store for them. As he said to them, "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all of Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8 NKJV). Jesus knew they needed the Holy Spirit''s power—to make good choices, keep promises, silence voices of fear, and get on with life. Jesus promised to provide this power to his followers. He still promises to provide this power today. The Bible reveals that the Holy Spirit—far from being an impersonal force—is always close, always active, and always at work within our lives. He is our helper, teacher, empowerer, intercessor, peace-bringer, guider, anointer, convicter, and diviner giver of gifts. God has not left us vulnerable and defenseless. Rather, his vision for us includes a Companion with resilient strength. So no more walking this path alone! No more carrying weight we were not intended to bear! It''s time to enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit and experience the life he offers. It′s time to tap into his power... and realize that help is here. This study guide includes: Individual access to five streaming video sessions A guide to best practices for leading a group Video notes and a comprehensive structure for group discussion time Personal study for deeper reflection between sessions Sessions include: Our Powerful Ally Our Strength and Guide Our Peace and Guarantee Our Intercessor and Advocate Our Gift-Giver of Life This pack contains one study guide and one DVD.

Jesus Study Guide
Do you find it more difficult to think of Jesus Christ as a human, like you, than to think of him as God? You may believe in God, and you may believe Jesus is God, but many Christians find it difficult to think of him as a real person--fully human as he was fully divine. Award-winning author Max Lucado reveals in this video Bible study that in order to really know God and understand the Gospel, it''s essential that we take a closer look at Jesus'' humanity. The concept of Jesus'' human and heavenly nature is difficult to wrap our minds around. He''s the God who formed the universe and, at the same time, knows your personal struggles...because he went through the same things. For thirty-three years Jesus felt everything you have ever felt. Weakness. Weariness. Sadness. Rejection. His feet got tired. His head ached. He was tempted and his strength was tested. The purpose of this study is simple: by journeying through these six lessons with a small group, you will get to know Jesus--and, therefore, God--like you never have before. And by learning more about the person Jesus was and is, we come to understand more clearly the people we were created to be.

How Happiness Happens Study Guide
"Happiness happens when you lose the weight, get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate." But, does happiness happen, really? "The pathway to happiness is desire, aspire, acquire, retire." But, does that path deliver? Don’t let your life be mired by dissatisfaction, discontentment, or disappointment any longer. In How Happiness Happens, Max Lucado looks at several “one another” statements in the Bible that reveal how the happiest people on earth aren’t those who have the most but those who are willing to give the most away. In this 6-session study, Max shows us how to address some of the most common sources of unhappiness: Difficult people - "Accept one another" (Romans 15:7) Pet peeves - "Be patient, bearing with one another in love" (Ephesians 4:2) Stress - "Serve one another" (Galatians 5:13) Holding a grudge - "Be kind to one another, forgiving one another" (Ephesians 4:31) Difficult circumstances - "Carry each other''s burdens" (Galatians 6:2) Low self-esteem - "Love one another" (1 John 3:11) God wants to bring joy to the people of this generation, and in his Word, he has given us practical and applicable ways to quarry that joy by sharing it with others. Although the world can be a lonely and disappointing place, we can be God’s representatives to bring about a cascade of kindness! While we won’t be able to solve every problem, we can bring a few smiles to a few faces–and in this way, we might even initiate our own quiet revolution of joy. Sessions include: Accept One Another Bear with One Another Serve One Another Forgive One Another Carry One Another’s Burdens Love One Another Designed for use with the How Happiness Happens Video Study (9780310105732), sold separately.

Life Lessons from Daniel and Esther

release date: Apr 02, 2019
Life Lessons from Daniel and Esther
Staying faithful when the pressure was most intense. That’s what these two did. The Jewish people had reason to be depressed. Their nation had been conquered. Their hometown was in ruins. They were living in captivity. Yet from the ashes, God raised up two key figures to preserve the Jewish race. Daniel was among the first of the captives carried away by the Babylonians. Although he lived in a culture opposed to God, he was always faithful to the Lord – even in the face of death – and ultimately was able to influence kings and rulers. Esther was in exile during the time of the Persian Empire. Like Daniel, the Lord also placed her in a position to influence those in power. God also called her to step out in faith and risk her life to foil a plot against her people. As a result of her bold actions, the entire Jewish race was saved from annihilation. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. Each lesson includes an opening reflection, background information, an excerpt of the text (from the New International and New King James versions), exploration questions, inspirational thoughts from Max, and a closing takeaway for further reflection. The Life Lessons series is ideal for use in both a small-group setting and for individual study.

Life Lessons from Genesis

release date: Apr 02, 2019
Life Lessons from Genesis
A beginning. An origin. A foundation. Knowing where we came from says much about where we are going. Perhaps that is why the first book of the Bible is a book of beginnings. God wants us to know where we came from. Learning that will teach us much about the place we are going. The book of Genesis brings us back to the beginning of the Bible, where the foundation of life itself is explained. We learn how we were created, about the origins of sin and its fallout, and how to best relate to God – through obedience and trust. We are drawn into tales of deceit, jealousy, and outright failure, where we see how God still uses flawed people. And weaving throughout these earliest stories of humankind are the golden threads of God’s promises – promises we can trace from their origins, through the course of history, up through our lives today, and beyond us to the end of time when his final promises will at last be fulfilled. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. Each lesson includes an opening reflection, background information, an excerpt of the text (from the New International and New King James versions), exploration questions, inspirational thoughts from Max, and a closing takeaway for further reflection.

Life Lessons from Ezra and Nehemiah
Two leaders, one burning mission: restoration. When the people of Israel returned to Jerusalem after their exile in Babylon, they found the city laid waste, the temple destroyed, and their way of life obliterated. Out of the ashes of this devastation, two leaders emerged to restore the foundations of their worship and their city. Ezra, the first to return, set out to restore true worship in Jerusalem by reminding the people of God’s teaching, what it meant for them, and how it should shape their lives. Nehemiah, the next to arrive, exchanged his royal cupbearer’s robes for coveralls and got to work rebuilding the wall. The project took twelve years and was an uphill battle all the way – with grumpy workers, squabbles, and enemies lurking at every turn. The efforts of these men reveal just how much God can accomplish in our lives when we follow where he leads. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word.

Life Lessons from Psalms
Worship is a daunting task. For that reason, God gave us the Psalms. This collection of hymns and petitions was written over a span of centuries, in many different settings, by kings such as David and Solomon and commoners like Asaph, Heman, and the sons of Korah. Some of the psalms are defiant; others are reverent. Some are meant to be sung; others are to be prayed. Some are intensely personal; others are written as if the whole world is to use them. But all have one purpose – to help us express our hears to God. So don’t just read these psalms but actually pray them along with the saints who composed them. As you do, you will experience their energy, appreciate their honesty, and enjoy their creativity. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word.

Do your Monday actions reflect your Sunday worship? How about your claims to faith? Is your life full of noticeable changes and actions? James, the half-brother of Jesus, wasn''t impressed with talk.

In his letter, he boldly deals with practical issues of faith not bound by culture or place. He shows the importance of living a genuine life of faith. His message is bare-knuckled as he encourages, challenges, and confronts, offering practical words and admonitions to live out our faith.

He skillfully compares these believers'' old ways and their new faith, arguing that Christ is better in every way. He focuses on Jesus, his effective ministry, and his ultimate sacrifice, showing us that absolutely nothing compares to our incomparable Christ.

The end of the world. How do you react to that thought? Does it make you afraid? Excited? Nervous? Full of anticipation? Full of peace?

This 12-session video Bible study will help you, your group, and your church stand on the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God who governs the world according to his great and precious promises. This world has a tremble to it. There are things that seem unsteady in this life. But when we belong to God, it allows us to filter our problems through the promises of God. When we choose to be people of the promise, we choose to build our lives on the promises of God, not the circumstances of life. The stories of the men and women in Scripture were different, but the theme was the same: they were People of the Promise. Because of God’s promises, Noah built an ark on dry land, Joshua claimed the Promised Land, David became king, Peter preached the first sermon, and John caught a glimpse of the future. Like them, we can also build our lives on God’s promises, and trust him to keep them.

Our Ultimate Hope

release date: Aug 07, 2018
Our Ultimate Hope
In Our Ultimate Hope, Max Lucado unpacks the undeniable problem of fallen mankind and the unshakable promise God offers of “no condemnation.” With scripted prayers and guided questions to help renew your soul, Our Ultimate Hope is the perfect companion to Unshakable Hope. The realization of our moral debt sends some people into a frenzy of good works. Life becomes an unending quest to do enough, be better, accomplish more. A pursuit of piety. We attend church, tend to the sick, go on pilgrimages, and go on fasts. Yet deep within is the gnawing fear, What if, having done all that, I’ve not done enough? Other people respond to the list, not with activity, but unbelief. They throw up their hands and walk away exasperated. No God would demand so much. He can’t be pleased. He can’t be satisfied. He must not exist. If he does exist, he is not worth knowing. Two extremes. The legalist and the atheist. The worker desperate to impress God. The unbeliever convinced there is no God. Can you relate to either of the two? Do you know the weariness that comes from legalism? Do you know the loneliness that comes from atheism? What do we do? Are despair and disbelief the only options? Join Max on a soul-renewing guide through Scripture’s ultimate hope: “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 8:1).

Life Lessons from 1 Corinthians

Life Lessons from 1 Corinthians
We know better. We should be able to do the right thing. But often, we go against our better judgment and give in. The Corinthian Christians were no different. They had listened to one false teaching after another—and they had believed what they heard. How many lies had they accepted? How many mistakes had they made? Their list of sins is long and ugly, much like ours. But Paul had patience with the Corinthians. He was disturbed but not despondent; angry but not desperate. His driving passion for them was love, and he saw hope for them. His letter confronts them and shows them how to lead a pure life. His letter to the Corinthians encourages all of us who need a spiritual check-up. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. Each lesson includes an opening reflection, background information, an excerpt of the text (from the New International and New King James versions), exploration questions, inspirational thoughts from Max, and a closing takeaway for further reflection.

Life Lessons from Philippians

Life Lessons from Philippians
An unexpected bill. An upcoming doctor’s appointment. A tense family visit. Every day struggles of all sizes creep into our lives, leaving us stressed. Frustrated. Anxious. Just plain miserable. The believers in Philippi were struggling. They were trying to grow in faith and live for Christ. Trying to deal with conflict and threats of persecution. The apostle Paul was stuck in a Roman prison when he wrote to this young church. His letter could have focused on his own troubles. Instead he wrote about living a life full of joy, peace, and contentment. He reminds us of important biblical truths and points us to Jesus as the ultimate example. Paul’s letter encourages. It inspires. His confidence reminds us of God’s wisdom and control in the difficult moments of life. His excitement challenges us in this guide to joy.

Life Lessons from 2 Corinthians
Some days we just forget. We forget the house keys. We forget the directions. We forget to return a friend’s phone call. And sometimes, we forget that we belong to Jesus. It’s not intentional, but it happens. The church in Corinth had forgotten. They were divisive. Insensitive. Argumentative. Rebellious. They listened to false teachers who questioned the message of Christ and who accused Paul of being unreliable and a false apostle. Paul knew the Corinthian church needed a reminder, so he wrote a heartfelt letter defending his character, ministry, and message. The letter reminds the Corinthians to turn from their worldly ways and to think and live in ways that honor God. Likewise, Paul’s letter encourages us to look at our own lives so we won’t forget what really matters.

Life Lessons from Galatians

Life Lessons from Galatians
Whose approval do you hope to win? Friends? Coworkers? Someone in your family? What about God? Do you sometimes wonder if you need to do more to earn his approval? Religious teachers in the early church were insisting that faith was not enough, that being right with God required something more. Early Christians were almost ready to accept and follow these extra requirements. This disturbed the apostle Paul. So he reminded the believers that salvation isn’t based on following a religious code. Nor is it based on what we do (or don’t do) or what we know or feel. Nothing is required on our part, except to believe. In showing us the profound difference between living by law and living by grace, he reminds us that we are indeed free in Christ. The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word.

Life Lessons from Colossians and Philemon

Life Lessons from Colossians and Philemon
Do you remember when God amazed you? When he marvelously provided for you? Sadly, sometimes we forget God’s mercy. We lose sight of his grace. The early believers in the Colossian church had forgotten. Instead, they were impressed by spiritual claims from false teachers, and the church was starting to add some extras to salvation. The apostle Paul’s letters reminded them that Jesus is all we will ever need. Paul encourages. He challenges. He gives principles for living and interacting at work, in our families, and our churches. Paul also knew that one of his friends had been betrayed and had every reason to seek revenge. So Paul wrote to Philemon encouraging him to rise above his hurt and show mercy, forgiveness, grace, and love. Paul’s letters remind us of the difference Christ makes in every aspect of our lives.
