Feeling Inadequate?

Feeling Inadequate? … Me too... Always have.  Guess I always will.  The truth is, I am inadequate.  I am inadequate to teach others the Word of God.  I am inadequate to lead a group of women in their walk with God.  I am inadequate to represent Christ to my neighbors.  I am inadequate to do anything good at all.   I wasn’t’ raised in a Christian home.  I haven’t attended Church all my life.  I don’t have a lot of Scripture memorized.  I still struggle with sin.  I am broken and flawed.  I don’t dress right; I don’t always act right; my car is a mess, and my boys are usually dirty!  Really, I am the last person you would pick to lead a Bible study!

But I do.  And I have for the past 7 or so years.  Yes, it still surprises me sometimes!  Yes, it is still terrifying sometimes.  Yes, it is still beyond my abilities—all the time.  But, week after week, God meets my lack with His grace, and together we get to touch hearts and spur on life change!  It is wonderful.  It is a privilege.

So, today, I want to encourage you.  Just say YES.  Just do it.  If God has laid it on churchmeeting1 your heart to lead a neighborhood study, don’t let your inadequacies or fears stop you.   God is faithful.  He will meet you in your weakness.  He will honor your obedience.  He will show up for you.  He will enable you.  With Him and in Him and through Him, YOU CAN DO IT!  I know…because I know our Lord.

Love, Lisa

What is NBS2GO?

NBS2GO = Neighbor Bible Studies 2GO. This website is the simple packaging of ideas, resources, and inspiration to equip believers to launch and multiply Bible study groups.


What's the big deal about a neighbor Bible study group?

A neighbor Bible study group brings together a wide range of seekers and Christ-followers to study, discuss, and encourage one another toward life application of God’s Word. This blending of spiritual maturity levels creates a dynamic, life-transforming community. Friendships are formed, and group members are equipped to minister to others where they do life.
