I’ve done many a Bible study over the years. For a number of years, I was blessed to study God’s word through Bible Study Fellowship and most recently through a women’s study through our church.
But each time I begin a new study, I find myself nervous…but also excited and hopeful that I will build friendships and bond with the women in my study. I’m prayerful that God will enable me to be faithful in my study…that I will diligently study God’s word. That I will be open and teachable and let God’s word rebuke, encourage, and conform and transform me.
Last night I began a new study in the book of Ephesians, a Precepts study by Kay Arthur. Through this study I will learn a new in depth Bible study method. What a great book to study so that I might walk with confidence of who I am in Christ.
When I start feeling nervous…I always remind myself that within a few short weeks the ladies in the study will get to know and love one another. I need to keep my focus on Jesus Christ and follow where He leads.
