About Life Rules DVD

Everything You Need to Know in Life, You Can Learn Here!

When we were in kindergarten, half the fun of living was breaking the rules without getting caught. In real adult life, however, there is nothing fun about broken promises, relationships, or hearts. In this DVD and study guide from North Point Resources, Andy Stanley explains God’s set of life rules that can improve current relationships and mend broken ones. Every game requires parameters, and in this lifelong journey toward heaven, it’s never too late to learn, relearn, and follow the rules God clearly outlines for His people…because they set you on the course for success!

Winners Play by the Rules

In kindergarten, ignoring the rules was a blast—especially if you could get away with it. But as adults, we understand that rules are for our protection, and that when we break God’s rules we cause heartaches and broken relationships.

In this six-part DVD, Andy Stanley clearly explains God’s basic set of life rules which, when lived, hold the power to all your relationships. It’s never too late to learn and follow the parameters God clearly outlines for His people.

This DVD is enhanced with curriculum study sessions that can be used for small groups or individual study. Each session includes 15–20 minutes of teaching followed by several discussion questions. The DVD is designed to work with the Life Rules Study Guide, which will help you apply the principles of this study to your life.

Life Rules: Instructions for Life

Part 1: A Special Invitation

How are we to interact with others? God makes it clear through the life of Jesus. Jesus showed us the grace and mercy that we are to show others as we forgive, accept, serve, encourage, and submit. In each of the following sections, one of these principles is examined.

Part 2: Forgive

Freedom comes when we focus on God, not on those who have hurt us. And though forgiveness seems illogical from a human perspective, it allows us to give to others what our heavenly Father freely gives to us. Forgiveness is a decision we can make to free ourselves from anger, bitterness, and malice.

Part 3: Accept

God’s love is unconditional and is not based on “getting ourselves together” first. This is the kind of love we are to have for others.

Part 4: Serve

Serving is the way to conquer self-centeredness. When we choose to serve others, our relationships flourish.

Part 5: Encourage

As a member of the body of Christ, we are required to hold our brothers and sisters accountable. Sometimes that leads to correction done with love and humility.

Part 6: Submit

Christ completely submitted to the Father for our sake. He modeled a lifestyle of putting relationship over personal rights. We need to submit to and serve others, not because of what they have done for us, but out of reverence for Christ.
