Titus 2 Ladies Group - Friday 08/03/2013

Tomorrow evening Jenny & Tina will lead the Titus 2 Ladies Group of our church, continuing the Bible studies series on women from the New Testament whose lives were transformed by Jesus.

The goal of this group is to challenge women from our church to encourage one another in the fear of the Lord and to learn to be missional in their workplaces, homes and families!

  
This time they'll be looking at the Canaanite woman meeting Jesus in Matthew 15:21-28.

In this interactive Bible Study women will be challenged to understand the Canaanite woman's faith in who Jesus was and how this motivated her prayer for the healing of her daughter. 

How do we react when it seems that God doesn't answer our prayers immediately?
In which ways does the example of this woman encourages us to persevere in trusting the Jesus that has mercy on us interdependently from whom we are?

"And Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon"."
Matthew 15:21-22 (ESV)
