Okay, so they used mule mail instead of e-mail — but they were still surprisingly modern men and women. With emotions, decisions, and dilemmas as raw and real as the students sitting in front of you every week. David and Rahab, Daniel and Ruth–even with their rough edges, they passionately loved Jehovah in a way today’s adolescents can understand and emulate. Here are 12 Old Testament character studies, including– Believe it or not -Abraham: Living by faith is not for wimps – Faith overcomes a fast past -Rahab: What you live is what you believe. Everything else is just talk. – The waiting game -Joseph: Trials and temptations can make us strong. – Benchwarmer to first string -Moses : Often God uses the least likely person to do great things. – Right woman, right place, right time -Esther : God has created each one of us for a purpose. – Keeping promises -Ruth: Commitment means more than saying the right words. – Bad days for good people -Job: Suffering may be the condition from which humans benefit the most. – The long way home -Jonah: Sometimes we simply say no to God. — And to help you teach the lesson are clips from easy-to-get videos . . . games for mixing and games that teach . . . in-depth, ready-to-use questions guaranteed to spark small-group discussion . . . original role plays, scripts, dilemmas faced by these ancient but very human believers in their Yahweh. For youth workers, Sunday school teachers, and CE directors, Creative Bible Lessons from the Old Testament will help your students understand that the God who offered hope and courage to ancient history-makers still does the same for teenagers today.

Daily, each of us must choose between giving in to the world’s pressure to trust in ourselves, or yielding to God’s desire for us to hand control over our lives to Him. While following God’s directions when you don’t see immediate results can be difficult, the payoff will always be tremendous.

*commit to giving God your very best in everyday life
*use trials as opportunities to strengthen your faith
*leave a strong spiritual foundation for the generations that follow you
Are you ready to leave the world behind and follow Him? Kingdom Heroes will motivate you to stop relying on your own strength and experience God’s unlimited power in your life.
Your Comeback : Your Past Doesnt Have To Determine Your Future$16.99Add to cart
Moses Was a Murderer…
Rabab was a harlot….
Esther was a diva.
These and other Bible heroes were far from perfect. They failed, they sinned, they deceived…and yet each of them had a dramatic comeback and were used of God beyond their richest imagination. The Bible isn’t the only source of “comeback” stories. Life is full of such dramatic turnarounds. Whether it’s a sports team coming from behind to win an upset or a late blooming student who wins the scholarship, or….your life story, God delights in arranging for comebacks.
Like the Biblical and contemporary examples told in The Comeback, your future can include an amazing comeback story. Popular pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Tony Evans offers hope by pointing you to the good news that God loves to use less than perfect people. If you’re less than perfect, you qualify!
“It is definitely not too late for you. God has a purpose, a destiny, and a goal for your life. Don’t go backward on Him now. You’ve come too far. You can’t change your past regardless of how much you may want to. But your past does not have to determine your future.” Dr. Tony Evans
