Teach us to Want & Perfect Love - Small Group - Kenya Stafford - Women's Group
THIS IS A LADIES ONLY BIBLE STUDY
We all want things: certain relationships, just the right job, affirmation from others, a life full of passion and purpose. Contemporary culture says to go after desire, pursue your “I want” list ruthlessly. Christianity seems to send a different message: Wanting is sinful and selfish. Faith is about obedience and sacrifice.
How do we reconcile the longings in our hearts with the God we're called to follow?
Ladies, please join with us this fall for a two-study series designed just for YOU! The first part of this study is entitled, "Teach Us To Want," and will take us on a brave journey through our many desires, longings, and ambitions. Featuring real-life stories of women wrestling with their desires—we will dive deep into Scripture and discuss what it means to desire as a Christian. We will show biblically how it's not only OK to name and voice our desires—it's actually holy to do so. When we freely let God know our desires and allow them to be informed by Scripture and re-formed by our spiritual practices, we'll discover a God more loving and generous than we can ever imagine.
The second part of this group study is entitled, "Perfect Love." We all want to be known and loved. Though we can experience deep relationships with others, there will always be a hole in our hearts for the perfect love of Christ. But, what does that really mean? How do we pursue intimacy with an invisible God? What if we do not feel worthy of His love? How can we respond when troubles kidnap our security in Christ? In this session, we will walk through the Song of Solomon to answer these questions. Though romance and marital love are typically associated with the Song of Solomon, we will take a Christ-centered approach to illustrate how this ancient love story is relevant to your life and relationship with Jesus today. Through this study you will learn how to embrace God's perfect love and realize your own beauty and worth in God's eyes.
