The Bible challenges God's children to reach out to others and to seek their Heavenly Father. We see this in Isaiah's teaching and the courageous life of Daniel, as we consider the theme 'Living Our Faith'. Also, through a study of the minor prophets, the importance of living a faithful life is revealed.We observe various aspects of faith in the New Testament, while psalms, proverbs and hymns continue to inspire us to live our lives freely for Christ. Guest writer Captain Julius Omukonyi, from Kenya, leads us into the glorious Christmas season and the birth of Jesus - who deserves to be celebrated and worshipped!

The theme of WORDS OF LIFE for 2012 is faith. This edition looks at our 'Faith Journey'. Beginning with a series on prayer, we then have the Israelites moving into the Promised Land. Observing the rise of a united kingdom under King David, we see how human weakness can break even those close to God. After Ezra's story of reconstruction and regeneration, we consider the question of suffering in the compelling book of Job. Guest writer Major Sasmoko Hertjahjo (Indonesia) provides a beautiful Pentecost series. In the New Testament we explore God's story recorded by Matthew, along with the opening of John's Gospel; then, in Acts, see the good news spreading and the Church being started. In various psalms and proverbs, as well as hymns, we find that our faith journey is both corporate and personal.

On Sundays we continue to glean inspiration from the psalms.'You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands!' (Isaiah 55:12, NLT)

This edition of WORDS OF LIFE starts with young King Solomon's singular initial task of fulfilling his father's vision by building the splendid Temple in Jerusalem. From a king using costly materials we turn to lessons from commonplace objects of pottery. Then guest writer Major Anita Caldwell challenges us to pursue the splendour of everyday holiness before the apostle John's writings aid our thinking as we move towards the Easter victory of our radiant Risen Lord. On Sundays we discover more nuggets in the psalms.'The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory.' (Colossians 1:27, The Message).
