This study guide is designed to help you think about the Biblical truths embedded in Refuge. This is a novel that illustrates how spiritual battles are fought, lost, and won. It reveals Satan’s tactics for attacking human beings. It also shows God’s mercy for even our blatant sins.
Each study section has questions and scriptural passages for you to consider. This guide can be used for group discussion or for your own contemplation. Below are two ideas for your use.
Work through each meditation and discussion section at your own pace. Two options:
When a portion of the story sparks your curiosity or prompts you to seek deeper answers, focus on the topics that address your questions. Pick and choose the areas where you want to go deeper.
The second option: Work straight through the guide as you march through the story. The guide follows the story, allowing you to pause and reflect before moving on.
Look for the obvious as you answer the questions. Each question aims at simple observation. What do you see? The answer is right there in the written text.
I hope this guide enriches the story by highlighting God’s desire to restore and forgive. God’s loving purpose is eternal. Satan desires to ensnare human beings in sin. His tactics remain the same, though they adjust to our culture and our time. Yet God’s love trumps Satan’s efforts.
