It’s quiet this morning. Facing a busy day, my husband tiptoed out of the bedroom well before the sun came up. I slept in. In fact, the children are still sleeping in (hence the quietness). I wanted to take advantage of this time alone so I gathered up my books and headed to the office with a cup of coffee. Tomorrow I start a new weekly ladies Bible study at our church. Teaching women the Word of God is one of my favorite things to do. I’ve missed it since we moved a few months ago and now I’m excited to get started back. This Bible study will be unique in that there will be a wide variety of women there. There will be women from our church attend and from the community that have been invited but also mom’s whose children are attending “The Consortium” (contracted classes through a local homeschool group) that is held at our church. I’m expecting a diverse group of women all coming under the banner of God’s love and the authority of His Word to learn more about our faith in Him. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
~Loving our God, Learning of Christ, and Living out Faith~
Sounds like a great ministry philosophy, doesn’t it? Actually it is. You can check it out here. Are you involved in a weekly Bible Study? Christians need that weekly encouragement in the Word and the accountability with one another. If you are not, let me encourage you to plug in somewhere or start your own. Ladies, I have two books written just for women. There are links to them on the right side of this blog.
I still believe the best way to learn something is to teach it. This explains why I teach; there is still so much to learn from God’s Word. That is my greatest desire, flowing from my love for God, I truly want to learn more and more of Christ each day and take what I’ve learned and live it out for other’s to see. God’s Word is so powerful. In fact, without it we cannot grow in our faith. It is His Word that works in those who believe. “…when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe,” 1 Thessalonians 2:13.
