Sep 23, 2017 - In Acts 16, when Luke reports on the conversion of two locals, he tells us that Paul baptized their entire households. Why would Paul baptize an entire household?

"Miraculous" – the 20-year-old who's transforming the lives of care home residents, one bicycle ride at a time. 🚲

(Via BBC Three)

Women in the Word will study Paul's letter to the Philippians this fall. Philippians is filled expressions of praise, joy and confidence, despite the fact that Paul wrote the letter while he was in prison. The Philippian church, unlike many other churches Paul wrote to, was not facing any particular problem or controversy. Instead they faced the kind of challenges that still plague churches today: members not getting along, divisions within the community, some misleading others with ideas not in line with the gospel, etc. We will learn from Paul how to rejoice and persevere through the common difficulties of life.
Newcomers are welcome! Women in the Word is open to anyone in the community. Consider inviting a friend to attend with you!

In many ways, chapter 8 is the high point of the book and in the history of Israel as a whole. What would we expect to happen next after that thrilling encounter with God? The mountaintop is often followed by the pits of despair. The people acknowledge they are sinful like every generation before them. God is faithful, while they are faithless. http://www.wednesdayintheword.com/nehemiah7/

In chapter 7 the wall is finished. The city is safe, but not yet alive. In chapter 8 the people long to know God so they ask Ezra the priest to teach them the Law. http://www.wednesdayintheword.com/nehemiah6/

In chapters 3 and 4, the problems concerned external enemies. In chapter 5, the problems Nehemiah and the Israelites encounter are inflicted from within the community itself. In Chapter 6 Nehemiah is tested. Is he the kind of leader who fears God? Or is he the kind of leader who thinks too highly of himself and had been seduced by the power of leadership? http://www.wednesdayintheword.com/nehemiah5/

Nehemiah 3 paints a picture of community, including the main point that we should begin serving the body by working on “the broken wall in front of our own house.” Chapter 4 records the opposition they face and the leadership they need.

How do you introduce yourself? What things about you are the most important to tell someone first? Do people know about your prayer life before they get your business card? Do they know of your passion for God before they know your job title? For Nehemiah, being part of the people of God was his identity. His job was an afterthought. http://www.wednesdayintheword.com/nehemiah1/
