We had our Life Group this week (tonight), and so I’ve been busy getting ready for the group. We’ve scaled back to once a month over the summer, so the commitment has been somewhat lessened. We’ve not been going through a book or anything–it has been topical. But, not having a set agenda makes it a little tricky sometimes to figure out what to do. I keep on reminding myself that this is not my group, and that I need to trust God with whatever happens.
But that is easier said than done.
After praying, I felt that it was time to start a bible study on the 1st chapter of Ephesians.
I have been going through Ephesians on my own and really got a lot out of it. Last summer and fall, I did a series of posts on the topic:
We covered about the first 6 verses of the chapter, but I actually found some pretty good material from these posts while I was preparing for the group.
We ended up having a great discussion and I saw some new things that I hadn’t ever seen before.
I came away from the group with a new appreciation of God’s acceptance and grace in my life. I hope that others were blessed as well.
