This study is dangerous.
If you are doing the lessons consistently, you know what I mean. This week we had to pick out an “ongoing problem area” of our lives to focus on. I naively asked God to help me determine a problem area to choose, and the answer to that prayer was very painful and resulted in a weekend chalked full of being uncomfortably confronted with and aware of my viscous sin nature. I didn’t just read about the downward spiral on page 63, I lived it.
I guess I should be thankful. After all, that’s God’s plan for all believers, right? To change them into the image of Jesus. I like the end result. But, The process isn’t fun. Kind of like cleaning the bathroom. Or trying to get in shape.
This study is so rich and makes so many distinctions that are really helpful. I am hooked on wanting to learn how to change biblically…there is no other hope for me. I am really benefiting from the discussion as we do the lesson Wednesday mornings. I know it’s hard to do this study on your own without a group of people to meet with each week, but I hope and pray you’re getting something out of it. Remember, you can always listen to the discussion HERE (self-confrontation in the search box) and comment on what you’re learning.
