I Don't Have Granite Countertops...

I don't have granite countertops, I can't lead a neighborhood Bible study...

There!  I said it!  Doesn't that sound crazy?  Oh! my list of excuses was many...

  • I don't know the Bible like I should.

  • I haven't been to seminary.

  • I am nervous.

  • I don't have the gift of teaching.

  • My house isnt perfectly decorated.  The list goes on, and on....


Yet in the not so ignorable part of my heart lingered these words, "Who will go for Me?"

I live in the "South."  Most of the women around me have lovely decorated homes.  My neighbor's home has been featured in Southern Living Magazine!  To invite women into my home felt intimidating.  My thoughts about granite countertops were very real.  But deeper still, were my thoughts about my sweet neighbors and friends living right here next to me. "Who will go for me?"  And I said, "here I am Lord, send me."

Send me with all my insecurities.  Send me with all my flaws.  Send me with my shortcomings.  Send me with my shallow worries about my kitchen.  I can't give them living water.  You can.  I can't give them forgiveness.  You can.  I can't bring life change.  You can. And you can use me.  And if the Lord can use me He can use you!

What are your barriers?  Spoken or unspoken?  Real or shallow?

What is NBS2GO?

NBS2GO = Neighbor Bible Studies 2GO - nbs2go.com is simply the packaging of ideas, resources, and inspiration to equip believers to launch and multiply Bible study groups.


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

Like a one-room schoolhouse, a 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. Life transformation and multiplication!

NLT Scripture references on nbs2go.com and in publications, unless otherwise noted.
