Thoughts for Today
Ever since the sin of Adam and Eve, man's deepest need has been for peace with God. This longing for peace is expressed in many ways. People look to political reform, New Age philosophies, cults and other factions searching for peace. Some try to find peace through alcohol or drugs. Some adopt an attitude of "if it feels good, do it." Others look for peace by being good and doing good, volunteering for humanitarian service of various types. But if people find any kind of peace in these kinds of searches, it is a temporary refuge that disintegrates when problems and difficult situations arise.
The only real lasting peace comes from a relationship with God through Christ.

Knowing God My Father: Applying the Names of God to My Personal Life by Jimmy Ray Lee, D.Min. This curriculum is designed to help people strengthen their relationship with their heavenly Father by applying His names to their personal life. Along with helping Christians know God better, it can serve as an evangelistic tool by giving a true picture of God to people who may have a distorted view of Him because of an absent or abusive earthly father who did not or does not provide for them. This group can also help men who want to be better fathers. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
