When life weighs you down because of past experiences. It almost seems like we are carrying not only our baggage but others too. Learn how God can help us release, restore and renew our spirits.
40 DAYS WITH JESUS
We worry about so many things but outside of relationship with God we find ourselves dry and empty or we could say hungry and thirsty. Jesus offers us living water just as he did the woman at the well. This is a 40 day study but the material can be used on a weekly basis.
When an expert in the law asked Jesus what the greatest commandment is, Jesus gave a clear and simple answer:
"'Love the Lord your God..."
But what does the Great Commandment look like on the ground, in our day-to-day lives? And can we even come close to living it out?

The Bible is packed with examples of how God compels His people to take action. This study will look at five examples. God compelled Moses in unpredictable ways to lead His people in participating in the special relationship God wanted. Through an old spy (Caleb), God demonstrated His requirement of obedience in taking action. God compelled Joshua, the young leader chosen to replace Moses, to lead in ways that honored God. Through a lowly prostitute, God provided for His people.
1 Peter 2:21 (NIV), "To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps," is the foundation of this study series, Kaleo.
