Here we go, guys! Week 3! We are officially at the half-way point of this study and you are doing great. We are LOVING reading all the comments on the blog and on social media. Keep those comments coming!
So … are you dressed to impress today? See how this used to be a struggle that held Melissa back from Bible Study in today’s weekly video.
Wow! That quote by Lysa TerKeurst in the video!! ~ “The more I try to impress others, the more I’ll quickly depress myself.” #Truth
To help you have all you need for your week, here’s the Weekly Lowdown. And for all our plan-loving OBSers out there, you’ll also find a suggested weekly guide in this downloadable PDF
Observe — In the video, each of the ladies shared what can make them feel a little insecure when it comes to being in a Bible study group. Can you relate to any of their personal struggles? Is there something that either has held or is currently holding you back?
Bible — This week’s verse is John 13:34a. Like our verse from Week 1, it is spoken by Jesus Himself. He tells us to love one another — another command, friends! But how are we to love one another and why is this so important? Let’s read on to find out!
Read John 13:34-35. Then, in your notebook or journal, complete the following:
- Write out each individual part of John 13:34-35 on a different line, leaving room for notes.
- Under each one, take note of your discoveries — what is God wanting you to learn or do?
- Share with us: What example do we have for loving one another and what will be the result when we obey this command?
