NOG - Week 1

My sweet friend K and I are doing the bible study No Other Gods by Kelly Minter this summer along with about 3000 of our closest friends from all 50 states and several other countries in conjunction with Beth Moore’s LPM Blog. It took forever for my book to come in at the store where I ordered it. But I got it on Wednesday and dove right in.

Holy Moly… let me tell you. It’s good so far.

And God… He is a-talkin’ to us.

We had our first meeting today (Saturday). And it is so interesting to me how certain words or phrases from a passage of scripture or from the text of the book will jump off the page at me… but completely different words or phrases stick out to her.

The whole study is about the idea of false gods in our lives. And it truly is amazing what has been revealed to each of us in just this first week.

It talks a lot about the idea of the God we believe in and profess versus the gods that in day to day living we functionally worship.

For me, personally, this idea of pride has been coming back up again and again. And when I really stop and think about it, I realize that self is the god that I am functionally worshiping.

Ouch.

More to come on this I think.

I really wanted to take that study, but I never did get around to ordering my book. :(
I look forward to everyone's posts about it though.
Pride is a big one, huh? I've been dealt with there a zillion times myself.
Nice to meet you, by the way. I am popping around to some of the blogs posted on the Siesta Fiesta blogroll hoping to get to know some of you better before August!
