Normally I don’t share what we are studying at Bible Study until long after the ink has dried on the pages of my members guide and I have never taken more than one study at a time.
Honestly, if you are like us we are a busy family and I wasn’t really sure we were going to do both of them. I had already given myself permission to skip out of the homework if I felt like it was a little too much (horrible I know) and for those who have been in study with me before you know that I always finish my homework.
But then last night the coolest thing happened to me at Bible study that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and for the first time that I can recall I know for sure that I am supposed to be taking them both.
Now this isn’t a review of either study because we have only just begun but, I felt lead to share with you what we are studying (in case you have nothing to study) and have included the course descriptions of both studies. Actually I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to do any Bible study classes at all this fall if I am going to be totally honest with you but I so glad I signed up!
So I signed up for this one on Wednesday nights:
The book of Hebrews is a rich, dense section of scripture that can intimidate the most scholarly biblical student. But Lisa Harper makes digging into Hebrews fun and doable, as only she can, without losing an ounce of depth. Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also so relevant for us today, reminding us to continue walking toward jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Join Lisa as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but he he is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end.
We just finished watching the second video of Hebrews last night when we were reminded that not only do we have to pay attention which in our present day and age can be really hard to do but we were also reminded that as Christians we are wired for war.
Wired for war… let that one sink in for a moment.
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. Priscilla Shirer
But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
Can you see WHY the hairs on the back of my neck were raised?!?
Seriously the coolest experience ever. I was reminded that everyday there is a war, an invisible battle, that takes place in the heavenly places. Even if I can’t see it.
I am very excited about both of these studies and can’t wait to see the transformation in myself and in those around me.
What are you studying?
