You know what participating in Bible studies over the years has taught me? That the worst times in my life are usually the best times to go through a Bible study. It doesn’t make sense, right? It’s so true, though, and here’s one reason why: community.
If you’re frustrated or even discouraged to hear that word, I get it. Having a dad as a pastor gave me a lot of reasons to build walls. Check this out, though: When I think back over my toughest seasons, I realize I wasn’t alone. God handpicked people to encourage me and point me back to Him.
This is why I encourage you to dig into the Bible Study Companion (BSC), my friends. It’s all about getting into God’s Word, and this week, it focuses on community. You’ll see what God says about it and the role it plays in your forgiveness journey. No group or certain number of best friends are needed, either.

Let’s pray first, and then turn to pages 21-30 of the BSC.
Here with you!
Heart to Heart:
How has God used the community around you to help you through a tough time?
