As I mentioned here, this summer I’ve been working on getting some of the Bible study curriculum I’ve written for my local church and college ministry formatted and share-able so that I can make it available for others to use.
Now available here and under the “Free Bible Studies and Resources” tab:
The Call of Jesus: An 8 Week Bible Study focused on Jesus’ Commands in the Gospels
This is one my favorite studies I have written or participated in, I just love it. For 8 weeks set aside time to look at Jesus, listen to His words, and ask what He is inviting you to right here in your real life.
Each week focuses on a different invitation or command Jesus made to His followers: To follow Him, come to Him, give thanks, see Him, abide in Him, remember Him, love Him, and love others. We will study these words of Jesus, hoping to hear Him clearly and respond to Him fully.
You can certainly do this study on its own, but I think you’d also benefit from doing it with a friend, sister, or group. I’d love for you to have a safe place to talk about what answering Jesus’ call looks like as women, wives, mothers, neighbors, co-workers, friends.
My friend Stacey Kuszak and I wrote this for a Bible study environment we created for the post-MOPS crowd, moms of elementary and older children who are ready to dig deeper into the Word. The words and Call of Jesus are applicable to people in any stage of life, male or female, married or single, parents or child-free. There are one or two wife/motherhood focused questions each week, almost always around the idea of how we teach these truths to our children. If those questions don’t apply to you, you can skip them, or think about how you would teach these things to those over whom you have influence.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share some what I learned from this study, so stay tuned to this space (and if you don’t want to miss a thing, subscribe and you will get everything I post right in your inbox!)
