Been playing a few games of football, but am still yet to make a start. Hopefully this saturday.
After Easter Camp we have started a new bible study topic.
We had to change nights of Bible study, so more people could come and also switched the group to meeting at our house.
It has been good to meet at our house so far, it is a bit more informal and relaxed. Everyone is enjoying our TV chairs (you would have to see them to know what I am talking about).
So we are looking at the book of Exodus.
It is great how it has worked out, starting Exodus after Easter Camp.
We are looking at how God saved the Hebrews, which of course parallels with the Easter Story.
It was great last week, we discussed Moses and the burning bush.
A few people found out some things about Moses that they had never realised.
James loved the fact that he was a real bloke, and that he wanted to get involved with the Hebrews even before God told him to. (Killing the Egyptian who was beating the Hebrew slave)
This week we looked at Chapter 6.
It was great to hear the young people share about the struggles they have sharing the gospel and their faith with their friends.
I think our bible study last night was a good encouragment for us all.
We were able to look at how Moses had this message of good news (gospel) for the Hebrew slaves, but they weren't able to hear it.
So we talked through what that meant for our own lives.
We also talked through the aspect of suffering and how God doesn't necessarily intervene at the moment we want him to.
Some talked of the need for God to test our resolve, others shared about how it is a process of God intervening, but realising that he intervenes, even if we think he isn't acting fast enough.
I love our Bible study.
I find the young people's stories so encouraging. They share about what it is like to be a disciple in their school and with their friends. it encourages me to see that the things we discuss are relevant to them and how helpful they find it.
To talk about something one week, then come back the next week and hear how they have tried to put that into practice in their life is both an encouragement and a challenge for me.
I don't know who gets more out of our bible study times, the leaders or the young people.
It is a great opportunity to get together and learn from each other.
