Sandy CampbellRespectable Sins by Jerry Bridges

Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of our society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? In this booklet adapted from Jerry Bridges' bestselling book Respectable Sins, Jerry returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses these more subtle sins (often considered acceptable) and how to deal with them through the remedy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sins such as jealousy, anger, pride, judgmentalism, and unthankfulness are addressed in this booklet. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins.

Cate Ange - Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

You can’t be joyful without being grateful.  In this 6-week study we will take on the challenge of choosing gratitude instead of allowing Satan to rob us of our joy. By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are. It’s only thru the expression of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we've always wanted … a life we can take, give thanks for, and use to serve others. In it, we come to feel and know the impossible right down to our core: We are wildly loved by God.

 

Laurel BlantonThe Quest by Beth Moore

This study will explore questions that God/Christ ask man in Scripture as well as questions that man asks of God/Christ. The Quest is based on the concept that we mortals are "question-marked." Providing support in Scripture for the consideration that being question-marked is not accidental or, in and of itself, sinful. We are hard wired in our humanity with inquiry for the purpose of engagement and engagement for the purpose of intimacy. God who desires to be found created humankind with an innate desire to seek. He who desires to be known by us created us with a yearning to know what (and who) we don't know. Questions are inherent in us as God's image bearers. And questions are utterly essential to the Quest.
