You’ve likely heard Eve’s temptation story in Genesis but have you explored why God put this story in the Bible? If you’re a woman bearing God’s image, read more and learn about having a healthy view of self from Eve’s temptation story.
What does it mean to be a woman who bears God’s image? Your purpose as a woman of God is tied directly to being God’s image bearer. Open God’s Word with us as we explore women’s God given purpose and how that translates to the world we live in today. Dear woman, you are God’s image bearer and you have an amazing purpose.
It’s January 1st, and the turning of the calendar stirs in our hearts a desire for change. As women, that desire is often linked to changing our appearance and because of that, we wanted to go back to the beginning and look at what it means to be God’s image bearer. Even if you aren’t setting a resolution today, at one point in your life you’ve probably set a goal to lose 20 pounds, learn how to apply your makeup, eat healthier, or go to the gym more. We’re women, we do this. We look in the mirror, and all too-often, we long for something different than the image reflected back at us. So in a world obsessed with image, it’s time we ask the question: Why? Why do we tie up so much of our value and worth in our appearance? This new year, we’re going to answer that question.
Loving people can be hard but also so rewarding. It all depends on the people in our lives. If you’re life is anything like mine, you’ve got plenty of difficult people in it who make loving them kinda hard. Have you ever wondered how Jesus managed to love all the difficult people in His life? Cuz boy oh boy were there a lot of them. Today we’re going to answer the “how do I love difficult people” question by looking at how Jesus showed unconditional love to the difficult, hard to love people in His life. But first we’re going to define love, so we’ll better understand what the Bible says about how to love.
Joy. What is it and how can someone be joyful all the time, when life’s horrible awful in the worst kinda way? I get it and better yet, God gets it. His guidebook for life, the Bible, has the answers to what Christian joy is and how to find joy during really difficult times. Using Mary, Jesus’ mother, we’ll answer those questions and explore what the Bible says about finding joy in the Lord…even when life is super duper hard. If you’re going through tough season right now, I pray this Bible study allows you to find true joy, the joy that overcomes the worst of things, and is grounded fully in your loving Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Hope. Finding it is tough and placing it in the right things can be even harder. After all, what is hope, where should it come from, and why should you even have it? Mary, the mother of Jesus, had every reason to be hopeless but instead, found hope and the words of her song conveys it. No matter how hopeless you feel right now, will you explore hope with me? My prayer is that you find the hope you need this season and that you’re able to use today’s Bible Study to find hope in every season. Before we dive into Mary’s story let’s explore what hope actually is.
Priorities. How do you set them and how’s a Christian woman to know if she’s chosen the right priorities? In a world where so much clamores for our attention and time, priority setting is tough. As a woman of God there are two key priorities that have to rise to the top of your list. Why? Because they determine what your remaining priorities should be. We’re going to explore how priorities have been overtaken and how to place the most important ones back on top.
