I'm very excited about tonight...we finally get started back with bible study. If you are in Birmingham (or really anywhere for that matter) and would like to join an incredible bible study let me know. I attend Community Bible Study (CBS), which is a non-denominational bible study that studies only God's word. Each year we study a different book of the bible and it is quite in depth. The one I attend is women only and it is such a wonderful time of fellowship and growing in God's word. There are about 200 ladies of all ages - fresh out of college all the way up to great grandmothers and it is such a wonderful study to be part of. This year we are studying the minor prophets and I have to be honest that I don't even know who all the minor prophets are but I look forward to learning who they are and how God used them. We're starting off with 1 & 2 Kings.
I was reading through the introduction and it mentions the importance of spiritual health. In our world we are usually measured by our worldly things and that really all of that is nothing unless our hearts are set to serve God intentionally. It says "Time management experts always advise putting the most important things first on our daily schedules. How would you live differently if you truly believed that your spiritual health was the most important aspect of your life. How would you prioritize your life if you really understood that nothing but your walk with God really mattered?" That really caught my attention because I don't always stop to check and consider how my walk with God is each and every day. It needs to be the first thing I do before I put my feet on the floor to check in with God for His guidance of my day so that I am sure that I am serving Him.
Check out CBS's website and see if there is a class near you. I promise that you will love it. It does help that we have an incredible leader who gives lecture each week who is simply and utterly amazing! CBS is a great resource and avenue to keep you steady and true in God's word.
