Enjoy this remodeled HEART 2GO Bible study written by Debbie McGoldrick.

INTRODUCTION

In creation we see a myriad of word pictures that God uses to demonstrate His character, biblical truths, and His miraculous ways. Jesus often used nature to illustrate His divine teachings. The following insect story allegorizes the essence of the HEART Bible Study theme. 

Imagine yourself as a child discovering a fuzzy caterpillar. Excitedly you pick it up and put it in a vented jar that is filled with sticks and leaves. You are fascinated as you watch its body inch along investigating the new habitat. 

One morning you notice the caterpillar motionless on a stick. Pausing, you see thin cream-colored threads crisscrossing and surrounding its body. You wonder what’s happening? After several days your curiosity turns into despair as you fear the caterpillar is dead. Then a small hole on the surface of its silk-like cocoon catches your eye. As you watch closely, you see something unlike the caterpillar is struggling to break free. 

After what seems like forever, the unexpected happens—out emerges a beautiful and colorful butterfly! Carefully you unscrew the lid and watch it take flight. 

You are stunned and wonder, how did that happen? Sitting in Biology class years later you understand—that magical transformation was a metamorphosis. 

This process is the inspiration for the HEART theme— “God’s Word Transforms Hearts.” The word transform means to change in form, appearance, or structure—metamorphose. “Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has passed away. A new way of living has come into existence” (II Corinthians 5:17). 

As you read, ponder, and follow God’s Word, amazing changes will begin to transpire deep within your heart paralleling the mysterious reconstruction that takes place inside a cocoon. These changes from within will be manifested in your daily living, creating a newness you never dreamed possible. You are a new creation! 

There are four studies included in HEART. The first two center on God’s HEART for you and how your HEART can become Christ’s home. The last two studies guide you to dig into passages that will encourage and strengthen your HEART. This Bible Study draws from a variety of Old and New Testament passages.

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!
