FYWBTG – WEEK 4

maxresdefaultWhile I realize that many groups and classes have not completed Week 3 yet, I wanted to get you thinking about your week 4 gathering.  Week 4 is about the Awakening to Love. When we find our way back to God, we will discover our identity as a deeply loved, unconditionally accepted child of God.  While many of the people in our groups have made the decision to follow Christ, I know many Christians (myself included) who struggle to remember that they are accepted and loved by God.  So many people spend their lives trying to earn God’s love and the love of others.  As you meet for week 4 talk about this struggle, what it looks like in your lives and what it means to truly find your identity in Christ.

WHAT’S NEXT

rightnowmediaAs the FYWBTG series comes to a close, most likely your group will be looking for the next thing to study.  While there are many benefits of having Rightnow Media, one of them is to put a resource library at your fingertips to browse through.  As you think about your next study, please take some time to search through the Bible Study Library. You can find it by clicking here.    If you need an account you can get one here.

After you take some time to look, I would recommend bringing two ideas to your group and letting them choose between those two ideas.  Once you know what study you would like to do, please let me know and I will purchase the leader resources for you. 

While I think there are a lot of great studies out there, here are four I would suggest as a next step.

THE BOOK OF JAMES | FRANCIS CHAN

THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS | JD GREEAR

You can find it on Rightnow Media here: https://www.rightnow.org/Content/Series/195647

SIMPLIFY | BILL HYBELS

NOT A FAN | KYLE IDLEMAN

As always, please email me if you need anything for your group or class.

Thanks, JG
