Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 1: The Importance of the Word

Scripture Text: John 1:1-14

Memory Verse: “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”  John 1:1

Lesson Aim: To highlight the importance and power of the Word in the life of the believer.

The memory verse speaks of the “Word” that was in the beginning, that was with and that was God. The Word embodies the personage, character, plan, and eternal purpose of God which will never fail, for it is the very expression of God Himself. John 1:14 also states that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 3: The Battle of the Mind – Part 2

Scripture Text: Genesis 3:1-7

Memory Verse: “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” 2 Corinthians 2:11

Lesson Aim: To expose how the enemy attacks our minds.

Let’s look at the specific strategies that Satan uses to attack us. It was in the battle of the mind that Satan defeated Eve. First, the enemy deceives us and casts doubt into our minds about God’s Word. Satan knew that God had commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but he planted doubt in Eve’s mind.

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 2: The Battle of the Mind – Part 1

Scripture Text: Romans 7:14-25

Memory Verse: “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Matthew 22:37

Lesson Aim: To help us recognize the importance of our minds and the significance of the battle of the mind.

God created man with incredible mental faculties. Before the fall, Adam had a perfect body, with a magnificent brain. He was fearfully and wonderfully made. Of all God’s creation, man is the only one that shares God’s image, including the ability to think and be creative.

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 4: Developing Spiritual Disciplines

Scripture Text: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Memory Verse: “But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:2

Lesson Aim: To introduce the importance and benefits of developing spiritual disciplines.

What are spiritual disciplines? A spiritual discipline is a habit or regular pattern in our life that repeatedly brings us back to God. Spiritual disciplines are tools that work in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, opening us up to what God is saying and doing.

Why do we need to develop them? We need to develop spiritual disciplines

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 5: Exercising Faith

Scripture Text: Matthew 7:7-11

Memory Verse: “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:3

Lesson Aim: To emphasis the importance of faith and encourage active and practical application of faith.

Faith is a must for successful Kingdom living. We all have a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). We receive it from God when we become a new creation in Him. When you accepted Christ, you were immediately enrolled in the “school of faith.” School is where we learn and grow. It is where we

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 6: Strength through Prayer

Scripture Text: James 5:13-18

Memory Verse: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Lesson Aim: To understand the authority and power of prayer.

Prayer is important to the believer. Because of its importance in the Christian life, we cannot overemphasize the need for and the benefits of prayer. It is important to the Church, its ministry and the ministering brethren. The disciples gave

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 7: Strength through Fasting

Scripture Text: Isaiah 58:1-12

Memory Verse: “Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning.” Joel 2:12

Lesson Aim: To gain an understanding of fasting, its purpose and power.

It is time to fast! Learning to fast is one of the keys to successful Christian living, but in our society, the thought of depriving oneself of any indulgence seems ridiculous. Sometimes the mere mentioning of the   word causes something to quiver inside of us. As noted by the late Dr. Bill Bright, “Fasting is

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 8: Strength through Praise

Scripture Text: Psalm 149

Memory Verse: “Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightiest still the enemy and the avenger.” Psalm 8:2

Lesson Aim: To inform or remind us that praising God is an effective tool in the weaponry of the Christian.

It is probably safe to say that the church at large understands very well that praises exalt God. We are often admonished by our worship leaders and moderators to praise the Lord. We do it because God is good and He deserves our praise. But fewer

Strengthening Your Walk – Lesson 9: Holy Spirit Empowerment

Scripture Text: John 14:15-26

Memory Verse: “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” Romans 15:13

Lesson Aim: To outline the impact the Holy Spirit should have in the life of the believer.

The Holy Spirit (Spirit of God) is first mentioned in Genesis 1:2. There the Spirit of God is involved in creating the heaven and the earth and everything else that is in them. The work of the Holy Spirit is awesome. He is alive, creative, powerful, influential,
