Living the adventure


I was chained. You wouldn’t have been able to hear clanging links as I walked by, or see the chain that was metaphorically wrapped around my heart and mind.

Jesus died to set us free from sin’s power in our lives, but we can still walk hindered.

We can break free and stay free. The strategies to do it are in our new book.

At times our souls desperately need to be refreshed with the Word of God. It is like water to our souls. The Bible quenches our thirst to know God better, it cleanses us from the daily stain of sin, and it nourishes our souls with renewed strength and vitality. We need God’s Word to thrive spiritually as much as we need water to survive physically.

So the Lighthouse Bible Studies team is pleased to announce the start of a new Bible study magazine called Refresh ...
