We just finished reading unit three of Experiencing God  by Henry and Richard Blackaby, welcome back everyone! We noticed more women joined Bible Cafe™ online small groups this week. There are women around the world participating in this online Bible study. Some of you are reading independently, some are joining Facebook small groups, and some are joining the discussions through Zoom.

The groups have balanced out with “regulars’ in attendance each week. In Zoom groups with phone/video, many of you are making new friends. Because we see your faces and hear your voices, it feels like a “cafe” where friends and family meet. We’re having deep and meaningful conversations.

Facebook groups are wonderful too. We have been using this social learning format for 10+ years. If you are unable to find the Bible Cafe™ group, save it to your “favorites list.” Or save the URL so you can find it each week.

Sometimes Facebook hides our content. Sometimes Facebook deletes our content.

Be patient and use perseverance. Try looking in the group “media” tab and find your small group photo. Or use the group “search box” and type the name of your leader or the group number. Our leaders are doing their absolute BEST to overcome the technical challenges of the social learning platform. Pray, pray, and pray!

This is your personal Bible study and we have a team of volunteer leaders to support you. If you need prayer, encouragement, or just want to talk with another Christian woman… please join the small groups.

In Experiencing God unit three, you learned about how God pursues a love relationship with you. He is a Living God…not someone in a history book that you pick up and read about. God is real, present and He pursues you. His love never changes and His love never fails.

God loves His faulty children. He gave His precious Son to wash away our sins. He reunites with us in eternity.

God’s love is unyielding. I have carried that as a treasure inside my heart and experience it daily. He loves me as His Daughter…both here and into eternity. My friend, He loves YOU too!

Are you willing to lose pride, self interests, and your own desires… for the sake of Jesus? And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Cor 3:18 NIV

Lose your identity as a woman of this world and claim your identity as a Daughter of the King.

Each day when you wake up put on your royal crown, know you are a Daughter of the King and live a life pleasing to Him…a life centered in love.

“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-38)

As Blackaby teaches, “A love relationship with God is more important than any other single factor in your life”. It trumps the iPhone, the shoes, the TV shows, the food, the cars, the house, the job, the kids, the spouse… it really is everything.
