First Gathering...What if Your Fears Come True?

Ok, so you have planned and prepared…you have prayed and prayed… your invitations have been sent… some  have expressed an interest …you have picked the perfect study…and FINALLY it is time…it is your first gathering…you are so excited!   And it happens. The thing you most feared… no one shows up or only one or two women come.WHAT DO YOU DO? If no one is there, go ahead and have a good cry.  Really, you deserve it.  If you have company, you will need to hold off on crying till later though...This probably won’t happen to you, but if it does, here is what I learned:(1) It is not about you. How can it be? You are just beginning!  Don’t take it personally!  You are not a loser or a bore or whatever else may be going through your mind...(2) God may be testing your faithfulness.  If God’s desire is that none should perish, if He would leave the 99 to go after the one, will you lead just one or two if that is all He sends?  Is it about you or Him?  Are you willing? Can he entrust you with a few? Will you prepare for the one like you would for the crowd?  Will you serve Him with all that you have no matter the number?(3) You may need a friend, just one friend, who will show up with you every time you meet. Having just one other person with you will make it easier for others to come and will definately help you to feel better too!(4) Keep praying and keep doing what you believe God has called you to do until He tells you otherwise. I promise, He will reward you for your faithfulness. In fact, He will bless you beyond your wildest imagination!!!

Feeling Inadequate?

churchmeeting1

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 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 - 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.
