BIBLE STUDY: Sunday, March 18, 2012

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- This weekly Bible study appears in Baptist Press 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 YOU! curriculum.

Bible Passages: Colossians 2:8-10,16-23

Discussion Question: How does your life demonstrate the freedom that can be found in a relationship with Christ?

Food for Thought:

In "Crazy Love," Francis Chan exhorts believers to pursue the passionate love relationship with God that He beckons all of us to have. In the book, Chan shares stories of everyday people like a man called "Rings" who demonstrate their love for God in extraordinary ways.

Rings is a "chain smoker, ex-convict, ex-addict and ex-alcoholic" who lives in his truck near downtown Ocean Beach, Calif. He doesn't spend his monthly check on himself. Instead, he buys food at a local market and drives to the beach to make meals for the homeless.

As he prepares their meals, Rings tells those who've come to eat about the freedom Christ has given him. He shares how much God loves each of them because he knows that he would have nothing without God. Rings, in turn, gives everything he has to help others see Christ's love.


The YOU! curriculum, intentionally focused on urban and multicultural believers, is biblically based with culturally relevant lessons to help people connect, grow, serve and ultimately be engaged in impacting the world for God. This flexible quarterly resource offers weekly Bible study for leaders and learners, devotionals and teaching plans as well as articles on hot topics and missions. For more information, visit
