Bible Study

We had our Bible study in our church this afternoon. We do it every Thursday. We started it November last year. I am the one teaching because all those who've been attending were the ladies in our church. Hubby can teach too but he let me do it so the ladies can better understand if it's taught in our dialect. I love teaching and sharing to them the Word of God and I am so glad that the Lord had given me wisdom to teach and be used in this ministry.

Years ago, I can't do it. I was not capable and equipped. Besides I feel nervous speaking in front of many people and my knowledge in God's Word was just limited. But with constant reading and hearing the word of God, I learned a lot. Now, I don't feel nervous no more when teaching Bible study because I know the Holy Spirit is with me. I am doing this because I want to be of service to the Lord and to win souls to Jesus. I also proved to myself that if you are willing to be used by God to do His work in the mission field, He will equip you and help you along the way.

Since we started the Bible study, we had quite a few attendance ranging from 5 to 8 ladies. It was not that bad considering that our church is still young and we don't have many members yet. I was just feeling down today because there were only 2 ladies who attended our Bible study. It was the least attendance so far since we started but the Bible study must go on. The Bible said, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20 KJV.

I just pray to the Lord that next week, our attendance will go up. Lord, bless our ministry and our effort. You know my heart's desire Lord and that is to serve you wholeheartedly. Take away the discouragement in my heart and I pray Lord to convict the hearts of those ladies in our church to come and attend our Bible study and worship services instead of doing their thing like gambling. It really grieves my heart to learn that they are doing that despite the gospel that they have heard in our church. Lord Jesus, help me and my husband to do your will. Help us to be bold and take away the fear in witnessing to the lost. Use us in a mighty way O Lord.
