The Christian Trilogy - The Crucified Life - Small Group Bible Study

A small group Christian study designed to reflect upon the Seven Last Words of Christ from the cross and what they mean for us today. 

Discover what it means to pick up your cross and follow Jesus.

Walk the road of Cavalry with Jesus if you want to grow closer to Him. Along the way, you will discover what areas of your life are stumbling blocks and how dying to self will enable you to rise to new life with Him. What better time to set out on that journey than the Lenten season?

The Crucified Life small group study examines human suffering as it is mirrored in Christ’s suffering on the cross and what His seven last words say to a hurting world. Find out incredible insights into these words as Jesus teaches us, even in death, how we can use our suffering and triumph over it for His glory. 

This study explores:

  • Why do we go through suffering and how should we respond to it?
  • What does the Lord’s Prayer teach about unforgiveness?
  • Is shame a good thing or a bad thing?
  • How can we crucify the desires of the flesh?
  • What does the cross of Jesus Christ teach us about our purpose in life?

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20

The Crucified Life is a transformative preparation for Lent or can be used any time of year. It is a study that not only speaks to the individual heart but deepens community relationships also.
