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.

Continue in the Faith

By Scarlett Stough

To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Will He Find Faith?

1. Hebrews 11: 1-40. Define faith. What actions were made possible "by faith" in these examples of people of faith? Can you think of ways you have or can in the future imitate these people of faith?

2. John 3:16-18; Acts 26:15-18; Romans 10:14-15; Ephesians 2:8-10. How does faith begin? How did your faith begin?

3. Galatians 2:17-21; 2 Corinthians 5:7; Colossians 1:21-23; 2:6-7. Where does faith lead us and how does faith get us to that destination?

4. Ephesians 6:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:8; 2 Timothy 2:16-19; Hebrews 3:12-14. How does faith shield and protect us and from what?

5. 1 Timothy 6:11-12; Hebrews 12:2; Colossians 1:23. How do we continue in the faith?

6. Luke 18:8. What can we do to keep faith alive and pass the faith of Jesus Christ on to the next generation?
