One of the great promises of God is also one of our greatest treasures as believers.
Someone has said you can live a lifetime without luxuries, but only 40 days without food, 3 days without water, 3 minutes without air, and only a few seconds without Hope.

We have been given present hope, we have been promised eternal hope, we have been made the personal representatives of the God of Hope.
Tonight we are learning from lesson 6 the Biblical Basis for ________________. That is what all of us are spending this entire month immersed in as a part of our preparation to be Biblical Counselors & Disciplers.
On the first page of the lesson we see the outline for the month;
1. Biblical Principle: Biblical Basis for Change
2. Three Levels of Problems
3. Biblical Hope
4. Biblical Basis for Peace & Joy
Understanding This __________________________
So that is what we are doing together for 30 days. That is the course work. This BC&D Course has two parts: the text and the lectures. What we do in this lecture portion of the class is how to apply those truths. So just for you to see the big picture:
• We gather weekly to focus on the “HOW it works” portion of the course. This is personal application, from the Word of how to communicate truth to others in a BC&D session.
• We study through the course materials each day of the month for the “WHY it works” portion of the course. This is the systematic explanation of the doctrines of BC&D.
