BIBLE STUDY: Sunday, March 1, 2012

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- This Bible study appears in Baptist Press each week in a partnership with LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through its Leadership and Adult Publishing team, LifeWay publishes Sunday School curriculum and additional resources for all age groups.

This week's Bible study is adapted from the Bible Studies for Life curriculum.

Bible Passages: Psalms 42 & 43

Discussion Question: The last time you faced a trial, did you run to God or did you run from Him?

Food for Thought:

Everyone faces trials in their lives, and we're conditioned to believe that our response to those issues is the true measure of our character. However, the measure of our Christian character lies in whether we run to or from God during a trial.

In the 2011 movie "Courageous," Adam Mitchell's family suffers a tragedy. While the standard Hollywood fare expects audiences to anticipate it, viewers don't see a man who retreats from his family and turns to worldly coping techniques for relief. We see a man who seeks the Lord's guidance to become a better husband and father than he has been in the past. Ultimately, Adam and his friends help bring about a change in their congregation as they seek to empower men to stand up courageously for their families.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope." As Christians we know that infinite hope is found in Christ alone.


Bible Studies for Life is a life-stage family of resources that addresses key issues facing adults and students. Consisting of seven curriculum lines developed for various life and generational stages plus two others designed for deeper study, all of these resources focus on the same Bible passage for each week.
