One week from tonight I will be starting a women's Bible Study here in Lakeshore. I am pretty excited about the study. We will be looking at 1 & 2 Peter and going through the study John MacArthur has put out called 1 & 2 Peter - Courage in times of trouble.
For the past several months, I've been wanting to do another study. No one kept me from beginning one, I just hadn't found material to guide the study. I originally thought about co-leading a study guided by Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney. It is a great book and I think the ladies here in the church would enjoy it as well. But I am not really qualified to lead that study...since the book is about being a wife and a mother (both of which I am not). But more than that, I felt a real burden to get the ladies here more into the scriptures than just another book. Books are great, but I want to see them cherish the Word of God and read, study, and meditate upon it. Hence the reason I chose to cover 1& 2 Peter.
Lord willing we will cover 1 Peter beginning next week and end mid-December. I'm planning on starting 2 Peter up after Christmas which will take us about 4 weeks. I am looking forward to the study and pray that the ladies involved would grow in the knowledge of the Word and would grow in their love for and cherish the scriptures.
Please pray for me as I lead the study and for the ladies participating in the study as we dive into 1 Peter together. It ought to be a great study.
