"And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’"Revelation 2:8-11
"I came from the Father and have come into the world, and now I am leaving the world and going to the Father. ...I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."John 16:28-33
"In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you."John 16:23-27
Knowing the Living God is the first workbook in Paul David Washer’s Biblical Foundations for the Christian Faith series of Bible Studies. This workbook can be used as a 13-week study for individuals, families, Sunday school classes, small groups, and churches.
Only the truths of Scripture, understood with the mind and communicated through doctrine, can provide that sure foundation upon which we should establish our beliefs and our behavior and determine the validity of our emotions and experiences. The study of doctrine is both an intellectual and devotional discipline. It is a passionate search for God that should always lead the student to greater personal transformation, obedience, and heartfelt worship.
Knowing the Living God is primarily a biblical study and does not rely on colorful illustrations or quaint stories. Rather, in author Paul Washer’s typical style, he has provided a work that simply points the way to the Scriptures and allows the Word of God to speak for itself.
The great goal of this study is for the student to have an encounter with God through His Word. Founded upon the conviction that Scripture is the inspired and infallible Word of God, this book has been designed in such a way that the student is strongly encouraged to have an open Bible before him or her.
24By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, 25choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Saviour of men. If He be something He must be everything, and if He be not everything He is nothing to you.
