Blogger Small Group – Scripture Release Week 6

with one comment

Scripture Release:
Partnered with Jeff over at Consuming Worship, we are releasing week six’s scripture for the Blogger Small Group. If you unaware of what this small group still is, GO HERE to read the expectations, instructions and guidelines.

After studying James, my initial reaction is that there is no way any book we study will make me as uncomfortable and convicted as what James did. However, from studying James, I know that as soon as I have that reaction, that is when God is going to smack me in the face even harder than he has already.

I had been thinking and praying for where as a small group we were headed. Is this group seeking God? Or are we seeking affirmation from one another as to what we say when we post our entries each week? Are we all in this for the right reasons? Are we reading and studying the scripture, or just poking at it on the surface level? I don’t know where everyone else is in the group, but wherever you are at, I encourage you to be real in this group. Take down your walls and be honest. If you don’t understand, say you don’t understand. If something makes you angry, tell us and explain why. If we only allow ourselves to get out of it what we want and never challenge/question scripture honestly, then God is never going to make an impact in/through this group

Anyhow, this week we’re going to dig in deep again. This week however we’re going to start in the book of Romans. When this book was first suggested by someone within the group I shrugged it off, feeling little to no conviction to study the book of Romans. During this past week something has told me however to listen to him and to seek God’s truth in Romans. Now, here we are, ready to jump straight in.

Remember, next Tuesday is when we get together and meet to share where this scripture lead us, and to discuss with each other in whatever way God leads us.

There is no holiday this week to get us all confused.
I expect everyone to be on time.
No excuses.
