Tomorrow, we start a 5 week bible study on the gifts from God. There are 5 Mondays before Christmas. Do you find yourself taking a lot of time trying to figure out the bests gifts to give your loved ones? I know I do. I want each person to truly love their gift. So why do I wait until the end of November to start this? Oh the pressure I put on myself! :) But as the holidays approach and life gets a little busier, I don't want to put God on the back burner and get to Him when I have time. I want to make Him my daily priority. I want to be very intentional this holiday season and focus on God's gifts He wants to give us.
Intro for this bible study: I am not taking on a teacher role during this bible study but rather coming as a student of the word like you who wants to know more and learn more about His gifts to us. Instead of studying this by myself, I thought it would be fun to gather with others online and study His word together.
As I have been reading about God's gifts to us and thinking about how to make five specific posts on His gifts, I have come to realize there is not one gift that stands alone and there are not just five gifts. Yes, I can see your eyes get big and the words at the tip of your tongue ready to say "but Jesus is that gift!". Well, yes and no. I thought the same thing but as we dig into God's word about His gifts we realize quick that one gift is tied to another gift that is tied to another gift. But for study purposes and to really learn all we can about all the gifts, I am going to pray and let God give us the direction on the gift or gifts of each of our five Mondays. As we study His gifts in the next five weeks, let's have an understanding that we know Jesus is the ultimate gift from God to all.
I am glad you are here. I look forward to hearing what God is speaking to you during this study. Along with having the comment section to discuss what God is teaching us, I have also created a forum for us to talk with each other. Feel free to go to forum and add yourself as a member of the bible study. Feel free to invite anyone who wants to dig in His word with us.
Welcome to this 5 week bible study!
Prayer: Lord, may our hearts be open to receive Your wisdom and knowledge that You want to give us as it relates to Your gifts. May we be pliable and moldable to become more of what You want us to become. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Who am I? Galatians 2:20 does a great job of summing up who I am. My life is His, the One who loves me and gave Himself for me . In return, I want to be all He wants me to be and do all He wants me to do on this side of Heaven.
