The Bible is full of characters, especially in the Old Testament. Whether it's the first humans created, the first murderer recorded, or the few righteous people on earth, the characters we find in the Old Testament reveal a lot about ourselves, and our relationship to God. But more than that, these stories reveal the character of the God who loved us enough to not give up on us even though we have disappointed him throughout history. Topics include: the key life events of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph; the leadership of Moses and Joshua; the reigns of Saul, David, and Solomon; the ministry and messages of the prophets Elijah, Elisha, Hosea, Isaiah, Jonah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel; the story of the nation of Israel, God's chosen people.
In this 48-week devotional, you'll spend time looking more closely at how God, Jesus, and the characters of the Old Testament are all connected, and you'll better understand how you fit into this big story. With daily scripture and thoughts, questions to get you thinking, and plenty of space for you to journal your thoughts, you'll find that God's character becomes clearer to you. You'll even discover what it takes for you to take on more of God's characteristics in your own life.
