Practical • Biblical • Cross-Cultural
Doug Britton Legacy Newsletter — May 14, 2020
I’m thankful that in the midst of the ever-changing and immensely challenging world we live in, we can find comfort from standing on the solid rock (Matthew 21:42). As I write, I am praying for all of you, whatever your situation may be.
Although necessity forces us to confront the tragic consequences of COVID-19, I think it’s also helpful to focus on our daily walk with Jesus and how we interact with those around us. I pray that one or more of these new online Bible studies will strengthen and encourage you, as well as those you are helping in these difficult times.
By the way, I’d like to thank all of you who have sent me notes of encouragement, as well as those who have linked to these studies in social media. I feel like I’m part of a large team spreading God’s truth around the world. Thank you.
New Bible Studies
1. Reject Inappropriate Guilt
Some people feel guilty when they haven’t done anything wrong. They may constantly question their motives, words, or actions, and they may frequently apologize for nonexistent offenses. I call this “inappropriate guilt.” This Bible study helps readers find freedom from inappropriate guilt when there’s nothing to feel guilty about.
2. Ask Others for Forgiveness
Most of us are amateurs at apologizing and asking for forgiveness, whether we told a lie, spoke in anger, broke a promise, spent the rent money on something we didn’t need, or did something else. This online Bible study helps readers see how to ask for forgiveness, deal with the consequences of their actions, and rebuild trust.
3. You Are a Part of the Body of Christ
The Bible describes how closely Christians are connected to Jesus and to other Christians by calling us “the Body of Christ” (Romans 12:4-8). This Bible study explains what this means and how it should affect the way we interact with fellow believers.
1. Laying a Solid Foundation
This Bible-based cross-cultural book is ideal for a married couple or small group marriage study. It helps couples understand what it means to be one flesh, how to forgive (and ask for forgiveness), how to take the beam out of your own eye (Matthew 7:1-5), and more. It is the first book in the “Marriage by the Book” series.
2. Conquering Depression
Do you sometimes feel like you’re at the bottom of a pit? Whether you are dealing with discouragement or depression, this practical, Bible-based book will help you discover the underlying reasons for your sadness and help you change your thought patterns.
That’s it for today. May God continue to direct and bless you and your ministry to others.
