Journey Into a Passion-Filled Life is a 13-lesson study of the life of David. David is one of the most interesting and powerful characters in the Bible. He is so important that it takes 66 chapters in the Old Testament to tell his story. David is mentioned no less than 57 times in the New Testament and it is evident in Scripture he was a man in pursuit of God’s own heart. “I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:10-11). David shows us that one seeks a God pleasing heart by seeking God’s will. The practical insights we can gain from a study of David’s life can help us develop a heart pleasing to God. Our study will remind us that David struggled where we struggle and through it all he continued his pursuit of a God shaped heart.
This is designed as a class or personal study with questions for discussion and reflection at the end of each chapter. It is the sixth book in the Journey Series by Clark Tatum.
