To Live is Christ – Ladies, see how you can live fully as a servant of Christ through this 11-session study by Beth Moore.  More than any other person, Paul provides us an example of sold-out servanthood.  He understood what it means to die daily, crucified with Jesus Christ.  As a result, Paul shows us how to live fully as a bond servant to Christ.  As you study the Book of Acts and the Letters of Paul, you will come to know the characters personally, but most of all you will feel the challenge to follow Paul’s example just as he followed the example of Christ.
