"But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (AMP)
In this study we encourage you to use your amazing Victory Stories (how you overcame the temptation to sin by obedience) to spread the Gospel! When you start functioning in His Spirit and experience victory (overcoming the temptation to sin) you WILL WANT TO BE HIS WITNESS! This study will be comprised of Discipleship Lessons and guest speakers to give you encouragement to do what the Lord has called you to do and give you a glimpse of what "being His witness" can look like.
You will learn:
that a call to follow Jesus INCLUDES discipleship (teaching others)
you are equipped to teach others because of the Spirit in you
if you do not teach others to follow Christ, you are being disobedient
"My soul was stamped Childhood Victim of Sexual Abuse, instead of A Child of the King. I wanted freedom but my heart was shackled to pain I couldn’t outrun, ignore, or forget. It followed me into every relationship, every conversation, every waking and sleeping moment like a dead body strapped to my back. All my attempts to get rid of it were useless. How can I be happy? How do I get out of the pain? Most of my life had been a search to find answers to those two questions.
Very slowly, God brought me out of the hell that was my life. My journey started with forgiving my abusers, and ended 20 years later with freedom and joy. Along the way, I learned how to trust God with my life and my pain; how to love my husband; how to read and understand the Bible; how to hear the Holy Spirit’s voice; how to walk through the pain and leave it behind. God has restored my life in good ways I could not have imagined. My passion now is to help other women find hope and leave their sexual abuse in the past, as a certified counselor through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC)." Barb
