Anyone who struggles with chronic pain has searched for the silver bullet the magic elixir that will end the incessant suffering and return one s life to normal. If we search for God s prescription, however, we will soon discover that our silver bullet is not a medication, a therapy, an exercise regime, a seminar, a new mechanical manipulation, an operation, or even the latest, greatest cure-all potion offered by marketing enterprises. Instead, God s prescription is a relationship with a person, Jesus Christ.
Being called a Christian is to declare a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to be one of His peculiar people:Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (Titus 2:13-14 KJV)
Christians are distinctive and have hope where others would find none. The Silver Bullet is a personal growth Bible study, for either individual or group study, designed to increase spiritual hope in Jesus Christ despite one s physical condition.
So let s not be fooled by the world s promises of quick fixes and magic cures. Our endurance is in Jesus Christ, who gives us assurance of a spiritually fruitful life no matter what our circumstances may be. God does not waste anyone s suffering, but rather uses it for His purposes: As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish... so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. (Isa. 55:10-11 NIV) Let's use God s antidote, Jesus Christ, as our sought after silver bullet.
