New Testament Women Bible Study
Live Out His Love: Experience & Share the Love of Jesus for Women
"This study encouraged me to have a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. I truly want to share what Jesus has done for me with others – thanking God, for sacrificing His Son on the cross." (Nola)
Jesus demonstrated in His life on earth how much He loved and valued women. He taught, forgave, accepted, and gave new life to them. Because His care for them was so countercultural to what they had previously known, women responded with love for Him and a desire to serve Him. Jesus Christ entered into the midst of their lives, visibly representing God to them, loving them dearly, and changing their lives forever! He does the same for you and me today. You will experience the compassion of Jesus for women as you study His interactions with women in the “Live Out His Love Bible Study.” Then, you can share that same compassion with your friends and co-workers.
If you are longing for more direction in your walk of faith than attending a weekly Bible study and the annual Christmas brunch, that longing is a desire put in your heart by God to fulfill His purpose for your life. That purpose is to live for Him, experience His love for you, and share His love with others around you. Jesus is calling you to that kind of life. He commissioned everyday people like you and I are to share the good news about Him with others and make disciples.

Bible women were everyday women like we are today. They cooked meals, did laundry, and raised children. They had responsibilities inside and outside of their homes, including home businesses. They experienced hormone fluctuations and menopause. They laughed with their friends, differed with their mates, and cried when a loved one died. They wrote songs and played musical instruments. Their hair needed to be combed and fixed, and it turned grey as they aged. They faced fear from invading enemies, sick family members, and empty pantries. They faced creditors and surprise houseguests. They even had “bad” days when things didn’t go right, sometimes due to their own choices. Their stories—snippets of their biographies—are preserved for us to get to know them, and to know their God who is also our God—an ever-faithful God whose character never changes. We get to see how much our God loves us as women today.
