WANTING TO START A STUDY/PRAYER GROUP?
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW FOR YOUR STUDY/PRAYER GROUP?
52 WEEKS OF ORDINARY PEOPLE/EXTRAORDINARY GOD
by Jody Neufeld
Introduction excerpt from the book:
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)
All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the LORD weighs the heart.
Proverbs 21:2 (NIV)
Weekly study or prayer groups are a VITAL part of discipleship. In these two verses from the book of Proverbs alone I hear the Lord telling me how important it is that I am accountable to other Christians who are also desiring to grow in the Lord. In a small group of fellow believers I will see how God intended His Church to grow as a Body, each member being gifted for the role that He has for them, networking together to support and encourage each other so they can go out into the world to spread the Good News.
This book is designed to give a short devotion that may be used to ‘jump start’ the group’s time together. The content page gives a listing of the 52 weeks with a note of how that particular devotion could be date-sensitive to the time of year. The space to the left of the list allows you to ‘check off’ a week, giving your group the option to skip around through the book or working your way from front to back.
Like its older sibling, Daily Devotions of Ordinary People – Extraordinary God, I have included some short notes on some of the ordinary people who have impacted my life and I encourage your group to take time at each meeting to PRAISE GOD and THANK HIM for the people He has brought into your lives, remembering that it is GOD who is extraordinarily working through these ordinary people.
God bless you as you continue to grow by the power of His Holy Spirit and the example of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
