The history of Israel is filled with stories of corrupt kings, a divided kingdom, and exile. However, God's sovereignty shines through as He uses broken people to achieve His purposes. The books of 1 and 2 Kings center around the climax of the great overarching history of a world created by God and of a particular people in it who were handpicked by Him. This Navigator Bible study follows the chronological events of Israel's eventual downfall while teaching valuable lessons about God's will and character.
Christians have a lifelong goal: to become like Christ. This involves change, and change isn't always easy. But the more a person knows of God's purposes for him or her, the more that person can experience His joy and participate in His plan.
