Hey all, I hope you had a great weekend. I just returned from our new staff women's bible study. We are studying the book of the Bible, I Peter. So far, it is great. We have just been beginning with studying it inductively. It is hard to initially get going with the steps to be diligent and faithful to the responsibility of being in the Word. However, I know that in the end, it is worth the fruit of obedience and what is really in each book is amazing!
Anyway, my heart is that as women we leave ourselves with no excuse to not be in the Word ourselves. We cannot blame a ministry or a church or someone else for not handling the Word of God correctly. Because, if we have the Word, we are able to dig into it. That is what I want all of us women to leave this study with. Through the Holy Spirit we are able.
I usually lead a nigerian study, but this time, it is just for the staff women. I am going to be doing a nigerian study again in February on the life of David. But, for now, I am ready to absorb as much as I can out of I Peter. I consider it an honor to study next to these women. I pray you have your own circle of friends that you can be real with as you pull apart Scripture and struggle to find the truths in each verse.
