Bible Study Jan. 17 – The Chosen

Hello all, Warren and Louise will be our hosts this Friday night!  Please email me at r.e.fuller[at]gmail[dot]com for the address.  We’ll do snacks and drinks at 7 PM and start the discussion at 7:30 PM.  Please feel free to bring an appetizer or drink to share.

Jamie is going to be our moderator.  Here is her description of the topic for this week:

“‘All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ.’ –  Ephesians 1:3-4

I don’t know about you guys, but most of the time, I don’t really feel chosen by God. Sometimes doubt creeps in, and the voices of the world start to convince me that maybe some things do happen by chance or luck. I thought it might be good to remind ourselves how special we are to our Father. Let’s take a moment to realize that each of us is a miracle, and priceless. That God is not limited by our handicaps and fears…that through God ALL things are possible and under His control.  Regardless of what we think of ourselves or how we feel at any given moment, God has a plan for us, and we are an intentional creation.

I thought this week we could spend some time discussing these ideas through the lens of scripture and a passage that really impressed me from Dwight K. Nelson’s The Chosen. In light of the New Year, let’s discuss what this means for each and every one of us with regard to our relationship with Christ as well as share our own personal stories of being chosen by God.”

I hope to see you Friday!
