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.
This all-new study, based on Dr. Mears' perennial best-seller, invites readers to explore the world of the biblical Patriarchs in Genesis and journey with the ancient Israelites on their liberating exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land. Through 12 sessions of study, readers will get to know Adam and Eve, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and others, and see God's timeline for Israel's formation and salvation unfold. Plus, Dr. Mears' signature approach to the sweeping biblical narrative is to focus on Christ, so readers will also come to understand how even the earliest events of Scripture point forward to Jesus and His faithfulness to us today. Each session includes questions for discussion or personal consideration, ideal for group or individual study, as well as journaling space for deeper reflection.
