Jealousy...anger...worry...lust...and you haven't even had your first cup of coffee!
Every day of your life, from the moment you wake up, the cares and temptations of this world threaten to trip you up and drag you into failure and despair. In fact, one of the greatest challenges you will face as a Christian is to keep your spiritual, ethical, and moral bearings during your journey through life.
With a heart anchored close to God, you can survive...and thrive. David: Anchoring Your Heart Close To God, a Bible study from Gene Getz and Tony Beckett, examines the soul of David--a man after God's own heart, but also a man who struggled with temptation and disobedience, David's life speaks loudly to every person who faces the lure of the world, who is enticed by sin. This six-week study, filled with easy-to-follow guidelines and application questions, is perfect for group or individual use and will show you the importance of:
Responding to God with a repentant heart
Seeking spiritual renewal
Breaking destructive habits in life
Relying on God for daily strength
--all keys to experiencing the true blessing of God in your life.
