The women at Redemption Baptist are just finishing up an excellent study called
It just came out in Portuguese this year and we were so excited to use this resource to equip our women in how the study the Bible inductively.
As we went through the book, we put the steps into practice in our personal devotions. Half of the class we spent studying the book and half the class was spent discussing what we were learning from the Word. We began by studying the book of Jude. In each class I would give the ladies their homework for the week, (steps taken from the book) and then in our next class we would discuss what we learned in Jude. After finishing up Jude we decided to start on James.
By the time we got to Chapter 8 in the book where she does a sample study in James, we were excited to see we were right on track. The book is done but the Ladies of IBR are just getting started. We are studying and digging into the Word like never before.
More than just filling our heads with knowledge, we are informing our hearts and our minds. We are being transformed as we come to know our God more intimately.
