Real Joy - Real Faith - Real Life: To Live is Christ

Today's lesson focuses on Phil. 1:18-30 and Paul's confident testimony that for him to live is Christ and to die is gain. We discuss both how death is gain as well what a life lived fully and completely to the glory of Christ entails. We speak of the importance of prayer and how to live worthy of the gospel. The lesson closes with the somber reality of suffering for the believer.

Real Joy - Real Faith - Real Life: Christ is Proclaimed

In Philippians 1:3-18 we learn how the gospel informs our prayers, our relationships, and even our struggles and difficulties. What confidence we have in our God who begins and finishes His good work! How I hope our goal is the same as Paul's: only that in every way Christ is proclaimed...and in that we rejoice!

Real Joy - Real Faith - Real Life: Introduction to Philippians

In today's lesson we talk some more about what constitutes Bible study and why women studying the Bible together with women is important. We discuss a basic hermeneutical approach and then move into our unit on real joy, real faith, and real life. We look at the background of Philippians, the beginning of the Phillipian church in Acts 16, and then close out with a discussion of Phil. 1:1-2.

Why Bible study?

Welcome to a new year of Bible study! This lesson forms the foundation of what we want to be about in Bible study. We look at truths about the Bible from 2 Tim. 3 and what implications these truths have for us as we study God's Word. The lesson closes with the charge to be strong women of the Word, women anchored in the powerful and sufficient Word of God.
