- Sunday: 9am & 11am
2017 Winter Bible Study
Using The Good Book Study Guide: Women of Faith, we will investigate women from the Old Testament - women who, despite the differences of time and culture, had the same ordinary lives, common hardships, and unforeseen crises that we experience. They lived in a world with the same problems as ours: selfishness, greed, jealousy, cowardice and the many other failings that spoil our lives today. They experienced the same sort of doubts, discouragements, griefs, bewilderment and lapses into sin that we do. And the same almighty, holy God, who intervened in their lives, still speaks to us today.
We’ll look at these eight women in the order they appear in the Old Testament. They are certainly not perfect paragons that will simply defeat and discourage us. Between them they represent a whole variety of backgrounds, situations and experiences with actions ranging from successful to disastrous. We see how God is interested in ordinary sinful people like us, and how He can use us to bring about His perfect plans plus teach us how to respond to challenges such as temptation, doubt, fear, discouragement, intense longing, and the demands of our everyday lives.
Most importantly, we’ll discover that behind each woman stands the Lord Himself - always loving, always faithful, always in control, always working out His perfect plans, now revealed to us in Jesus Christ. By studying the lives of these women, not only can we’ll learn practical lessons about how to live God’s way in God’s world and come to know God in a deeper way.
