Explore the Bible Study: God Saves

4:14 PM

The fact that God saves should give us hope in our current circumstances. It should give us the faith to press on and continue to praise God for all He has done, is doing, and is going to do in the future. Yet, many of us continue to struggle with trusting God with our current circumstances and our future. If we could only trust God, how would that change our perspective on all that we are currently facing or will face in the days ahead? LifeWay's Explore the Bible Study: God Saves, will enable you to replace fear with hope because God's sovereign plan includes providing a way of salvation for those who believe in Him.

How would you complete these statements?

  • If you knew the outcome of the Presidential election, how would that impact your faith in God?
  • If you knew that our country will never cease to exist, how would that impact your faith in God?
  • If you knew that our country, as we know it, would cease to exist how would that impact your faith in God?
  • If you knew you were going to get Covid-19, how would that impact your faith in God?
  • If you knew you were NOT going to get Covid-19, how would that impact your faith in God?

The reality is this: we don’t know the future, so we have to place our trust in something (or someone) outside of ourselves. This is why having a full understanding of God’s salvation through Christ is so vital if we are to live lives that are not consumed by fear. This only comes as we realize that the God who saved us is also the God who continues to save us. We are under His mighty arms of protection, no matter what we face. 

Considering all we are currently facing in our country and our world, our song of hope should be the song of Isaiah 25:1, Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you. I will praise your name, for you have accomplished wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness. If we have been saved, then we should honor God as stated in Isaiah 25:3 and rejoice and be glad as stated in Isaiah 25:9. 

Exaltation, praise, honor, rejoicing, and gladness are all responses from someone who realizes God saved them according to His perfect plan. As you examine Isaiah 25:1-10, celebrate the hope you have because God’s sovereign plan includes providing a way of salvation for those who believe in Him and enabling them to face any circumstances with hope and trust.

DOWNLOADABLE STUDY HELPS

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, some groups are beginning to meet in person as well as online.  The Bible study helps have been modified in order to provide opportunities for both venues. There will still be more verbal based learning; however, ideas in boxes will be provided for engaging groups more when meeting in person. The boxed items could also be modified and used for online discussion as well. 

This week's session also provides a video clip you might want to use as a part of your opening introduction to the session.
