This week's study focused on engaging the Word of God?
What does it mean to engage? Two definitions from merriam-webster.com caught my attention: 1.)to get and keep someone's attention, interest, etc.
2.)to start fighting against an opponent
Day One of this week is about engaging truth expectantly. When you open your Bible, do you expect to see Jesus? You should. As a popular preacher says, He's on every page—from Genesis to Maps.
Day Two of this week is about engaging truth emotionally AND intellectually. Most of us tend to favor one or the other. Which are you? John 4:24 (Open up and take a look) and Matthew 22: 37-38 (take a peak) discuss how to worship God.
Day Three of this week is about engaging truth broadly. God's Word isn't a snack; it's a whole meal. Dig on in.
Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.
Day Four of this week is about engaging truth prayerfully. This was my favorite day because Rachael and Amanda honed in on God's grace in light of our sin. Here is my favorite quote of the week:
"Opening our Bibles every day is not all rainbows and roses—it is hard work. It requires discipline and obedience, and it brings us face to face with the ugly reality of our sin. It brings us to our knees in repentance, asking once again for the light of Christ to overcome our darkness. And He does."
If you are interested in doing this Bible study in an online fashion via social media, please reach out and comment via the website or Facebook. I need at least 10 women to get it rolling so spread the word.
