Have you ever wondered if God could really use someone like you? Then the story of David is for you. The shepherd. The king. The warrior. The friend. The sinner. The man of faith. David is known for carrying many titles over the span of his lifetime, but he is most often referred to as a man after God's own heart. While David's transparent faith was true and his loyalty to his Lord was real, an in-depth look into Scripture reveals that his life was also marked by times of drama, deceit, devastation, and doubt. How then is David known for being such an influential Bible hero? Unfaithful David served a faithful God.In this eight-week Love God Greatly Bible study, our look into the life of David will ultimately point us to a better Shepherd, Friend, and King: Jesus. On Mondays and Tuesdays of each week we'll explore David's life. Wednesdays and Thursdays we will look at Jesus, and Fridays we'll examine our own hearts. As we study together, see if you can spot God's faithfulness, His kindness, His patience, His justice, His mercy, and His grace in the life of David. For the God of David is our God as well. The life God chose for David truly was a life of adventure rooted in faith. Through the power of Christ in us, we too can become women after God's own heart. Journal along with us as we dive into Scripture together... reading and writing what God speaks into our hearts.

God Behaving Badly

God has a bad reputation. Many think of God as wrathful and angry, smiting people right and left for no apparent reason. The Old Testament in particular seems at times to portray God as capricious and malevolent, wiping out armies and nations, punishing enemies with extreme prejudice. But wait. The story is more complicated than that. Alongside troubling passages of God's punishment and judgment are pictures of God's love, forgiveness, goodness and slowness to anger. How do we make sense of the seeming contradiction? Can God be trusted or not? David Lamb unpacks the complexity of the Old Testament to explore the character of God. He provides historical and cultural background to shed light on problematic passages and to bring underlying themes to the fore. Without minimizing the sometimes harsh realities of the biblical record, Lamb assembles an overall portrait that gives coherence to our understanding of God in both the Old and New Testaments.

Sheila speaks candidly about the trials in her life, including the heartache of her first marriage, and intertwines her story with the biblical saga of King David. As both Sheila’s and David’s stories make clear, some cravings are misguided, but they all stem from the same hunger—and they will haunt you until that hunger gets satisfied properly.

Transform Your Family with Ten Minutes a Day in the Gospel Story Christian parents know the importance of passing the gospel story on to their children, yet we live in a busy world filled with distractions. Schedules collide, there is homework and yard work and dishes and laundry, the car's oil should be changed, there are phone calls to make and before you know it, everyone is getting to bed late again.

Long Story Short will help busy parents share with their children how every story in the Old Testament points forward to God's story of salvation through Jesus Christ. You won't find a more important focus for a family devotional than a daily highlighting of the gospel of grace. Clever stories and good moral lessons may entertain and even help children, but the gospel will transform children. The gospel is deep enough to keep the oldest and wisest parents learning and growing all their lives, yet simple enough to transform the heart of the first grader who has just begun to read. Ten minutes a day, five days a week is enough time to pass on the most valuable treasure the world has ever known.
