Suffering: A 3-Lesson Bible Study

$26.99

Suffering, a three-lesson Bible study, will help students understand that while God is in control of all things, suffering is a result of our rebellion against Him, that God chose to step into the midst of our suffering – in the form of Christ’s death on the cross – not to remain distant from it, and that God uses trials and suffering to accomplish His purposes and shape our faith.

How can a loving God allow so much suffering? It’s a question that people have always wrestled with. It’s one that almost all of us have or will ask at some point in life. Let’s face it: it’s a tough question. But it’s one that we don’t need to be scared of or shy away from.

Suffering, one of the studies in the Amplify line of Bible study curriculum, will help students understand that while God is in control of all things, suffering is a result of our rebellion against Him, that God chose to step into the midst of our suffering – in the form of Christ’s death on the cross – not to remain distant from it, and that God uses trials and suffering to accomplish His purposes and shape our faith.

Help your students understand how and why a loving God can allow suffering.

    Fears every Youth Worker has when selecting a year-long Bible Study: 

    • The fear of locking into a Bible study that looks good on the surface but doesn't go any deeper than surface-level 
    • The fear of being a few weeks into a study and it not meeting the expectations you set 
    • The fear of picking a study that doesn't ultimately speak into the lives of your students

    It doesn't have to be this way.

    The right Bible study is the part of your ministry that helps you reach students going through difficult times or those struggling with issues you may not even know about. We want to take away whatever barriers are in between you and the Bible study that will help you reach all of the students in your ministry.

    Amplify: Growing A Faith That Lasts is a powerful study that equips students to grow a dynamic faith by studying a variety of core spiritual truths. Over the course of 52 weeks, Amplify examines 17 foundational elements of faith, each using a unique 3-lesson framework.

    If you want to empower your students to grow a faith that will last, teach Amplify.
