Lesson 8: Seeing the Invisible (Romans 8, John 14, Psalms 55)
When we think about what we have studied so far regarding suffering, we might get the impression that we are to hunker down, take it, and resist giving up on God. Is there a more positive view of this? Are we empowered by "the invisible" to fight back? Should we refuse to meekly take suffering? Or, should we "grab it by the horns" and throw it to the ground? Let's jump into our study of the Bible and learn how we can best respond to suffering!
The Current Quarter’s Bible Studies on Jesus and Suffering.
Can the Bible help you get promoted at work? Can the Bible increase your pay? Can the Bible help you keep your job? Improve your marriage? The answer is “Yes!” The Bible teaches principles of “emotional intelligence” that can actually help you to be smarter and get along better. Bruce Cameron, the writer of these Bible studies and a law professor, has published a paper written for lawyers which presents 17 Bible-based rules of emotional intelligence which God gave us to improve our lives. Best of all, Professor Cameron’s paper is free and you do not have to be a lawyer to understand it. To get your free copy, first click on this link.
