Introduction to Study Guides

Before proceeding, it must be known that the format of these study guides depends on the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Christian who has made Jesus Lord and Savior of life.  Without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit the Bible says the things of God are foolishness.  With the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we can “hear His voice”  Hence, the format of this study will “exercise our ears” as we seek to hear His voice to answer questions that are provided. 


Someone once said “The Main Thing is to keep the main thing the main thing”.  The study guide entitled "The Purpose of Love"  was designed to help the Christian see that the "Main Thing" in the Christian life is love.  For a non-Christian, the main thing is to become a Christian; not to love.  Once a Christian, the main thing can truly become love. 


To become a Christian, it is necessary to realize that man's natural desires are contrary to God's desires for us.  The Bible says these natural desires cause a separation between God and man.  The consequence of this separation is physical and spiritual death.  To become a Christian, one must come to believe that the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross was an offering to God on man's behalf.  One must then understand that belief in this offering takes away the separation between an individual and God.  For more information on becoming a Christian, see Appendix 1 in The Purpose of Love Study Guide.


There are many Godly purposes for Life. The Study guide, "A Purpose for Life"  explores one of them that some call "Spiritual Multiplication". Like anything that is copied, the copy is to resemble the original. The original for Christian Spiritual Multiplication is Jesus Christ. We copy Christ by following his example. As we follow Him, we can expect to become fishers of men (evangelism) and an example for others to follow (discipleship). We cannot follow Him unless we are willing to die to self. Those who lose their life for His sake will find life and find a purpose for life that spans eternity.

Who is Jesus?

Matt 16:15-16 
He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" And Simon Peter answered and said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." (NAS)
Acts 4:8-12 
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers and elders of the people, if we are on trial today for a benefit done to a sick man, as to how this man has been made well, let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead-- by this name this man stands here before you in good health. "He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the very corner stone." And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved." (NAS)
John 20:30-31 
Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name
