All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Using Jesus’ sayings that we call the Beatitudes, The Power of a Focused Heart will guide users in simplifying their life by finding ways to say no to people in order to remain free to say yes to God.

Guidance for one-hour small group meetings includes a detailed session plan for eight weekly meetings and a “Moving Deeper” exploration. The book also includes “Suggestions for Service” and “For Additional Reading.”
