So. Forever ago (October 19th to be exact) I told you that TOMORROW I would tell you about one of my favorite Bible Studies that our group is currently doing...
And tomorrow turned into December 2nd. My bad.
But I can say, that I'm further into the study than I was back in October and it.is.so.good.
It's called STUCK.
One of the best ways I can describe it, is that God has used it as a sort of means of bringing refining, and purifying to my spiritual life. It assaulted all my "good enough" perceptions of myself. It made me look at areas of my life, my personality, with a fresh perspective...or a fresh dose of reality. And a lot of what I saw in me needed to be surrendered. Crucified.
It's interesting though. Much like what happens when someone is presented with the Gospel of Christ...their hearts are softened or hardened by it's message, I've noticed that through this study, dealing with these areas of sin causes us to either soften and repent or bristle and ignore. Whether we like to admit it or not, it's a reflection of our spiritual condition. I love a study that can do that. One that can cut to the quick of God's calling for us.
It's so very good.
