How Do You Know God's Your Father?

Authors: Kay Arthur, David & BJ Lawson
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
July 2009
ISBN: 978-0-307-45762-2
Genre: Inspirational/Bible Study

Designed for small group studies, HOW DO YOU GOD’S YOUR FATHER? is designed to help people to know here they’ll spend eternity. Many people, even those who profess to be Christians, hope they’ll have a place in Heaven, or that their place there will be secure.

The authors of HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD’S YOUR FATHER? want you to know, rather than guess, about the future. So, in this study of 1 John, you will find definite answers about where you stand with God.

You will also learn about how a person’s lifestyle reflects the character of the one to whom they belong—whether God or the devil—and you will learn what it means to walk in light rather than in darkness.

Using the New American Standard Bible, all scripture references are printed out in the side margins of the book, so if you forget your Bible, or don’t carry the preferred version for this study, then you can easily follow along. There are plenty of questions, with spaces to write your answers, in each section.

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD’S YOUR FATHER? is a six-week Bible study, one short three to five pages for you to read, discuss, and answer the questions for each day, in about forty-minutes or less. While this study can be done on your own, I think it is better designed for small groups, such as Sunday Schools, lunch-hour Bible studies, etc. This will be a valuable tool to have to minister to, and teach, those who say that they are not sure where they are going, or not sure if God will really forgive their sins and let them in. $7.99. 54 pages.
