Welcome to Session 5 of the Discerning the Voice of God online Bible study! This week, we were reminded that knowing God and His heart is another essential piece to hearing God’s voice. We hope that you were encouraged as you were reminded of God’s heart, character, and great love for you. We’re excited to hear more about what you’re learning as we discuss this week!
As a reminder, we’ll leave the videos up until March 31, 2018. After that you can purchase or rent video sessions here.
Did you miss our first few sessions? Don’t worry!
Before we jump into Session 5, we’d love to hear more about what you learned this week walking through Week 4: Reflective of His Heart in your Bible study book. Answer one or both of these questions in your group or in the comments below!
- In your own words, what is the difference between condemnation and conviction? (page 113) As you’ve studied, how have you been able to more readily identify God’s encouragement and conviction versus the enemy’s condemnation and discouragement?
- Recall a time when God’s Word, revealing God’s character, produced a change in your life. What were some of the immediate impacts? (page 129)
