Have you ever felt loud, overly emotional, regular…bored? Have you ever wondered if God could ever use someone like yourself? I know I have! And that’s why I love the character of Peter in the Bible. Seriously, he was pretty unstable when Jesus first met him. He was not in a stand-out position. He was a regular guy. And he definitely had his ups and downs in his faith. But Jesus chose Him. And most importantly, Jesus refined him and changed Peter in to a solid, focused, passionate leader.
Peter even wrote this of trials (which I assume he knew from first-hand experience!): "These (trials) have come so that your faith – of greater worth than GOLD, which perishes even through refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus is revealed." (1 Peter 1:7)
This beautiful verse has led me to a vision for a new 8-Week Online Bible Study on the book of 1 Peter – centered around how God refines us through trials, the world around us, and close relationships, to form us into shining women of GOLD! I would love for YOU to be a part of it…and invite a friend!
Here are some of the main topics found in this book that we will focus on throughout the Bible Study!
It’s just an amazing book that touches on so many needed life issues. I hope you will consider taking part in this Bible study! I know God brought you to this post for a reason – He wants to refine us! We are His chosen, loved daughters -but so many of us walk around wilting, and feeling dull and down. God desires to pick you up, give you direction, give you HOPE, give you specific encouragement and change…and make you into the shining, beautiful, purposeFUL woman that He designed YOU to be. All you have to do is open your heart and have the courage to let Him!
Join us in the online Bible Study and TOGETHER we’ll watch as God refines us and brings us forth as sparkling gold. I can’t wait! (And remember to registerto be added to our Facebook group and begin receiving the teachings, Personal Study Guides and to be a part of our online community!)
