BIBLE STUDY FOR SMALL GROUPS
Due to the recent Corona Virus pandemic, we were repeatedly advised to wash our hands. But in those emergency announcements, they failed to mention the urgency of washing our hearts, which is where the root of our problems begins.
We live in a fallen world and see injustice, sickness, discord, natural disasters and varied heartaches and pains. Even if we are committed believers, we may become dazed by many troubles. When this happens, we turn to Bible answers to be renewed and cleansed from the accumulated grime of the world, whether it is from our own doing or from something else.
Connie Bertelsen Young encourages small group participants to ponder some basic issues. She brings a unique approach, comparing one’s bodily residence of heart and soul to a house that must be kept clean and orderly. Using everyday household items (from cleaning rags to measuring cups) and common homeowner needs (from grocery shopping to security systems) to explain the heart and soul needs of every person. Those who ache for a personal renovation, need clean up, or want a little change in decorating, can find refreshment.
Questions pertaining to the condition of a believer’s “house,” follow the end of each chapter, gently prompting Christians to penitence and revival. Readers will be reminded how to dwell in peace through obedience to Jesus Christ so that they may shine like a house after a good spring cleaning.
