Have you ever thought, “I’d really like to study the Bible for myself, but I don’t know where to start?” Or maybe you are very familiar with studying the Bible, but you’d love to join a group of ladies to dig into God’s Word together?” If either of those thoughts describes you (or you’re somewhere in between) join us for a 6-week study in the book of 1 John.
Our goal is to get to know God better because the Bible is, after all, a book about God. In one of our previous Bible studies, Jen Wilkin said: “You see the Bible is not a book about self-discovery; its a book about God-discovery.” The Bible is God’s declared intent to make Himself known to us. In learning about the
character of God in Scripture, we will experience self-discovery but, it must not be the focus of our study. The focus must be God Himself.
Our study will focus on three areas as we look at 1 John:
– Comprehension – “What does it say?”
– Interpretation – “What does it mean?”
– Application – “How should it change me?”
Our prayer is that as we learn the book of 1 John, God changes us into women who love Him more and are becoming more like Jesus.
