We have officially reached the end of our Book Club.
We have spent the past 7 weeks reading and studying various women of the bible who found the courage necessary to fulfill their calling through a secure and blossoming relationship with God. Only through Him could they accomplish all the greatness He created them for.
So, now that we are at the end, where do we go next?
We can look to the women who grace the pages of the last two chapters of our book to show us the direction God want's us to take.
Make more disciples & spread the Good News of His Word.
We learn from Priscilla, featured in Acts, that to create more disciples, we must be willing to mentor them and show them God's way. Priscilla was on fire for God and she was creating disciples by mentoring the "younger" generation. They may not have been younger in years, but they were younger in faith.
Because that society didn't have social media, tv, or even radio, all mentoring was done in-person, face-to-face. We, as a whole, spend so much time looking at our devices that we are missing wonderful opportunities to mentor our younger generation, encouraging them to become disciples for Christ.
We can learn from her that through courage we, yes women of the world, can create disciples for Christ.
But one of the things necessary to create and mentor disciples is a fire for the Lord. We must have such love and passion that no matter what the cost, we are willing to spread His word and give others the tools necessary to do the same.
In our last chapter about Philip's four daughters, we learn from Grady that there are 4 reason's women aren't on fire for God.
Are you on fire for God after reading about these courageous women of the Bible? If not, what is holding you back? Are you scared about how society will look at you or are you just comfortable in your current life and want to avoid the feelings that come with being used by God?
Whatever the reason, it's time to step outside your comfort zone and make disciples for Christ.
Here's a little secret for you...you already took the first step by following along with this study and learning from women of the Bible.
Let's have our final chat.
1. What keeps you from creating disciples for God?
2. Tell us about a spiritual mentor that you have had in your life. How did they make a difference in your life? Did they lead you to Christ or were you already a believer?
3. What barriers are keeping you from being on fire for God?
4. What is the most important thing you learned, a "take away," from this study?
