A Phone Tree Bible Study Series
Week 1: Introduction
Summary: Weakness is typically not viewed as being something that is necessarily helpful. In fact, it tends to be looked upon quite negatively. In today’s day and age, if people perceive that you are weak in any way, then they may consider you to be lacking, ineffectual, or fearful. But what if weakness could be viewed from a more godly perspective. What if weakness could actually be looked upon as a gift?
From Priscilla to Us:
“…your weakness is actually a gift – a key of sorts that unlocks and unleashes His [God’s] power in your life.”
This Week’s Assignment:
1) Review Judges 6-8 and Hebrews 11. Write down the following: the characteristics of Gideon, the directives of God, the challenges faced by God’s servant, the indications of God’s strength and how faith was demonstrated in the life of Gideon.
2) Read the lesson material from Week 1 in your member book. (Week 1, Day 3 – God’s Story, My Story – will be featured in next week’s post.)
3) Sit down in a quiet place and pray to God. Tell Him where you are as you start this study series. Make sure that you confess your weaknesses and then ask Him for His strength.
“GOD CAN USE YOUR WEAKNESS.” – P. Shirer
