I am so excited to begin another Bible Study and draw closer to our God, aren't you! If you haven't got your book yet, you can order one from Kelly Minter's site (click on her name in the list on the right hand side of the blog) or LifeWay carries them. There's a LifeWay in Springfield or you can order from them on-line.
We are excited to begin this study on "Confronting Our Modern-day Idols". I hope you will join us for this eight week study! We start this week!!!

Yesterday morning, I had no idea how our day was going to roll out. We had lots to do; things we needed to do and things we wanted to do. It simply wasn't going to be possible to do it all, so I decided to adjust and move with the flow. We needed to prioritize, JD needed school supplies and school starts next week. Today would be the only day we had to do this together (although....separate might be the preferred choice, lol.)

This study has really been a study of hope, hasn't it? I love how Kelly Minter wrote about it, a study "about a Moabites who loved the God of Israel, who packed up her belongings to the care of a woman who wasn't blood and who didn't want her, who risked her life in the fields, who risked her life on the threshing floor, who drew the eyes of a noble man, married him, bore a son, and then placed the baby on the breast of the mother in-law she so desperately loved. Ruth." (p. 160)
Yet, the entire lineage of Christ is compiled of many stories of love, trust, and obedience. From the blood line of Abraham through Tamar, through Ruth, David and Bathsheba, and on to gives us a Savior. This blood line isn't perfect or majestic, but it's beautiful in the eyes of God.
What was the most memorable moment of this study for you?
