These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.  

Bible Study Guide:

Clothed With Power

By Scarlett Stough

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Power From On High.

1. Luke 24:49; Acts 1:3-8. What is the power God promised his disciples? Why did God send "power from on high"?

2. Ephesians 6:10-20; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. What powers of this world do we have to stand firm against? How does God equip us to stand against evil?

3. James 4:7. What is our responsibility in this fight against evil?

4. John 14:16-17; 15:26-27. How do we learn truth? What is truth? Use Scriptures.

5. John 15:18-25. What reception did Jesus warn his disciples they would get from many who heard their message about him? Why do you think so many respond in this way?

6. 2 Peter 3:9. Why isn't God intervening immediately to bring in his kingdom of justice and righteousness?

7. 2 Corinthians 6:1-2. Christians are those who have heard, believed and accepted the message of good news about Jesus. Why would Paul urge us to "not receive his grace in vain"?
