Overflowing Abundance DVD Bible Study by Donna Pyle
Aside from the resurrection, Jesus’ feeding of the five thousand is the only miracle recorded in all four Gospels. Even though Jesus dealt with doubting disciples, fatigue, personal grief, and limited resources, God desired to use that spring day to feed the masses with the Bread of Life.
The disciples find one boy willing to hand over his basket of provisions. Five loaves and two fish. Not nearly enough. Until they offer it to Jesus.
Through this six-lesson DVD Bible study and workbook, we invite you to dig deep into Scripture to see a compelling picture of our compassionate Savior. Sometimes, in seasons of stress and brokenness, we keep our eyes down. Trudging forward. Never looking up to see our Provider.
Yet when Christ is present, the weary find rest and the hungry soul is satisfied. Come and be fed by the only One who provides for your every need and fills you … body and soul … with Overflowing Abundance.

Every Picture Can Tell God's Story
Winsome Witnessing of Jesus Using Photographs
They mark the moments, days, years, and decades of our lives. They commemorate special occasions and everyday events. They express the gamut of human emotion.
“They” are photographs, those printed images we paste in albums, display in frames, send as Christmas cards, and often stuff in drawers, boxes, and trunks.
What use do you make of the photographs you’ve taken or received? Have you used them as a way to witness Jesus’ saving love and God’s power and provision in our lives? The images you’ve captured through the lens of your camera can tell God’s story in a unique, creative, and compelling way.
The six sessions of this study are designed to open your eyes to new ways in which you can be a winsome witness of Jesus using your own personal photographs and experiences. Images captured in the past can help you tell God’s story of salvation with meaning and conviction.
At the conclusion of the study you will have made your own personal Witness Album to share with friends and acquaintances.
This study is written by Diane Grebing who is currently serving as Vice President of Christian Life for the Southern Illinois LWML District. Diane is a freelance writer for Concordia Publishing House for 29 years. She and her husband, Rev. Terry Grebing, live in Bunker Hill, Illinois.
