Most of us, unwittingly, carry an old, dead outlook into our new Christian life. We couldn’t measure up to a standard we created, so we convinced ourselves it was God’s. We have read His words through our grid of shame and felt ourselves fall farther and farther behind. We took it out on each other, judging, comparing, faking, splintering. Some of us retreated from the whole charade, becoming cynical, mistrusting, jaded from hope.
Our marriages, churches, families, friendships, our marketplaces, our culture...they all need the cure. But God’s cures rarely come in the form we expect. What if, indeed, God is not who we think He is, and neither are we?
This book study will spend 7 weeks going chapter by chapter through John Lynch, Bruce McNicol and Bill Thrall’s culture-changing book. Starting at the crossroads of “Pleasing God” and ”Trusting God”, we will explore the ways our filters change how we interpret Scripture, expose the sin trap to stop its cycle, discover the full extent of forgiveness and get a new revelation of Jesus’ thoughts about us.
This study will go from October 22 - December 3; 6 - 7:30pm.
