On Free Bible Study Lessons, you will explore the Word of God for the glory of God and the enrichment of His people. Our heart is to see all Christians learn and mature in Christ and for others to come into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Christian life is precisely that - a life…an entire life, not a lifestyle or a set of beliefs. Christianity is a living, growing relationship with Jesus Christ. There are countless aspects of this relationship - a relationship that will be growing and developing throughout all eternity. However, one of the vital and foundational aspects is knowing the Bible. It is God’s love poem and instruction manual on getting the best out of life now and in eternity - for every action will impact our life after death and have consequences for our life now.
We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Col. 1:9-14, NIV
At Free Bible Study Lessons, we know the Bible is not just a book to be read but the very Word of God, which is to be studied, understood and applied in our individual and corporate lives. We also understand that the Holy Spirit must make it alive to you. Without that living relationship with the Holy Spirit, the Bible is either a great piece of ancient literature or a dry, dusty old book. We must have both the Written Word of God [the Bible] and the Living Word of God [Jesus Christ via the Holy Spirit] to experience its life-giving, life-changing power.
Our purpose at Free Bible Study Lessons is to provide you with thought-provoking, life-enriching articles, self-study online and e-mail courses, historical information and just plain fun.
The truth is that, although of course we lead normal human lives, the battle we are fighting is on the spiritual level. The very weapons we use are not those of human warfare but powerful in God’s warfare for the destruction of the enemy’s strongholds. Our battle is to bring down every deceptive fantasy and every imposing defence that men erect against the true knowledge of God. We even fight to capture every thought until it acknowledges the authority of Christ. 2 Cor. 10:4-6, Phillips.
We are born into a physical world that believes in Satan's lies and deceptive fantasies. He is a master magician spinning his corruption to the eternal [non-Christian] and temporary [Christian] destruction of lives. Of course, the Christian is ultimately delivered from his sinister plots by the blood of Jesus Christ. However, since we have been born into this upside-down world of lies, we struggle to discover and practice the Truth [and Truth ultimately is a Person: Jesus Christ].
Part of the journey of the Christian is uncovering the lies we have believed and embracing the Truth. In some areas, we may find this easy; in others, strongholds of deception must be conquered. For example, if you are a Christian and believe you are powerless against a particular sin in your life - that is a lie. Still, it will always defeat you until you know [intimate experience] the Truth in that area.
Many times, sincere Christian people support anti-Christian causes and policies at every level of life [family, business, church, government, etc.] because they either do not know or are unwilling to accept the Truth of God’s Word in that area. Do not be caught in that trap. A Christian will put God's will above their own will, preferences and prejudices.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge… Hosea 4:6, NASB
Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. Acts 17:11, NASB
There is a lot [and growing!] amount of material on Free Bible Study Lessons. Some of it is basic, and you probably already know it unless you are a new Christian. Other parts may present new ideas. You should neither reject nor accept them automatically. The challenge for you is to keep an open mind and go to the Scriptures to see whether what was taught is true. [If you don’t know how to study the Bible, take our free Bible course: Feed Yourself.]
Free Bible Study Lessons are an opportunity for you to expand your knowledge and grow your life in Christ. You can often visit this site to research Bible topics and applications. You can easily search our site with our search bar on the top of every page to see if we have written on your topic of interest. At the bottom of every page, you will also find the Bible Gateway search engine, which allows you to look up Scripture verses and topics in the Bible. Check everything out! You may not agree with everything here [in fact, you probably won’t!], but it will prayerfully open your mind to new possibilities and challenge you to study the Bible to discover what and why you believe what you do. And don’t forget to check out the fun pages for jokes, Bible treasure hunts and more.
You will only find a few personal stories on this website. I believe that the Word of God should judge everything. Experiences are important and can provide good illustrations, but can also be misleading. Truth is judged by the Bible alone. Where the Bible and experience seem to disagree, the Bible is what is True. In line with that, I write what I believe the Truth of God's Word is, not what I have achieved. The Word of God is the Perfect Standard, and none of us will fully reach it in this life. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we should be moving toward the goal. If you want to know more about me, see the About Me page.
And be thoughtful. If you find our Free Bible Study Lessons site helpful or interesting, be sure to “Like” it and share it! It is a “free” way you can help us spread the word. God bless.
