Discovering That a Godly Life Is Still a Good Life
by Cary Schmidt
The Christian life is to be a condition of the heart that shows up in a lifestyle. Throughout Scripture, God commands us to keep a right heart with Him and to live a lifestyle that pleases Him. Yet, many Christians today seem to believe, “God doesn’t care what I do, so long as my heart is right on the inside!”
This personal Bible study reveals God’s heart for a biblical lifestyle. In it, you will be challenged not to separate “who you are” from “how you behave.” You will be admonished to live very differently from the world and from today’s “pop-culture.”
Each and every page of this study will compel you to “walk worthy”—to live in a way that outwardly honors the Lord—to allow your relationship with Christ to flow into every act, every word, every thought, every deed, and every attitude of life.

Printable Student Outlines
Companion outlines are available (in both full page and folded page formats) as printable downloads through Striving Together Publications. These outlines include blanks that students or members of a group study may fill in during the lessons and also provide support Scripture verses that are used throughout each lesson. A packaged InDesign file (fully editable) and PDFs of each lesson are included.

For each of the thirteen lessons, our presentation slides include the following:
