This first book in the experience the life study series leads your group to the conviction that the life Jesus described in the Sermon on the Mount is possible right now. In fact, Jesus said we can equal and exceed the works that he did. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied... I tell you the solemn truth, the person who believes in me will perform the miraculous deeds that I am doing, and will perform greater deeds than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it."(Matt. 5-7; John 14:12-14)
This requires a commitment to set aside time to study, pray, and meditate in order to hear the voice of God and to take on the mind of Christ. If that commitment is not present, we are practicing Christ-less Christianity. After all, how can you follow and learn from someone whose voice you can’t recognize.
The leader's guide contains the entire participants guide plus helps for the group leader and the DVD that includes six 15-minute presentations by Bill Hull that introduce the next weeks study. This prepares the group for the topic they will study in the coming week.
