The Insanity of Obedience Leader Kit

Advancing the Gospel When Facing Challenge and Persecution

Nik Ripken (Author)

Publisher: LifeWay Christian Resources

Description

The Insanity of Obedience Leader Kit includes a Bible Study Book, The Insanity of Obedience book, and one DVD with a promotional video and six clips from The Insanity of God documentary.

How do we begin to walk and work with God, especially in dangerous places? Based on the documentary The Insanity of God, this Bible study presents missionary Nik Ripken sharing true stories of people who are suffering for the name of Jesus.

This study is an invitation to open your heart, your mind, and your eyes to the realities of walking with Jesus in difficult places. Engage with Scripture and see what it means to be a true follower of Jesus, not just someone who believes certain truths. Discover the answers to key missiological and theological questions about living sacrificially for the cause of Christ.

Believers play a significant role in God’s divine purpose. Observe how Christians all over the world are not only surviving but also thriving in the midst of persecution.

Session Content:
1) Missions
This session deals with God’s command to be on mission and our response to His command. The Bible is to be lived out in the present active tense.
2) Persecution
This session explores faith in persecution and suffering. Is obedience on this level insane, especially in the midst of popular theology that encourages obedience leading to success and comfort?
3) Family
This session deals with the spread of the gospel by addition and exponential growth. Faith grows in families and communities, from a single believer to small groups of believers to succeeding generations.
4) Growth
This session deals with the dynamics of healthy growth.
5) Victory
This session describes and celebrates the miracle of victorious living through an enduring faith—especially in hostile environments.
6) Church
This session is a summary and personal call to action for individuals, groups, and churches to join God’s mission—no matter how insane obedience may look. Why? Because Jesus is worth it.
