Session 2 Wrap-Up

Hi There OBS friends!

Many, many thanks to everyone who joined us at last night’s Facebook Party. We had some awesome discussions. I so appreciate you pouring out your hearts and the support you gave each other. We can’t change the past but we can make some decisions today that will change the future. Let’s choose today to move past our past, walk in the freedom that Christ died for!

We’re finishing up in Session 2... “Today is the Day”

So if you need to get caught up, answer the discussion questions in the study guide– pages 31-42

Continue to pages 43-50 – the Between Sessions Personal Study

Read and journal this week's Scriptures: 
Exodus 8:1-15
John 5:1-9
Isaiah 53:1-7

Optional Study help, I’m attaching the Unashamed 28-day Guided Journal (in case you missed it). Click here.

Jesus is fighting for you from a place of victory, not for victory

When it comes to shame, it is a dark place, and God wants to shine light
into our darkness. But to battle shame, we often have to stop running away from it and face it. We must face the darkness of shame and actually run toward it. Think about the setting sun. If we were to run from the sunset, with our back to it, the darkness will still overcome us—but we will spend more time running in the dark. However, if we turn, face the darkness, and run full-speed straight into it, we will actually pass through it and enter the light more quickly. This is the case with shame. We must face the darkness and pain of our shame and run toward it. The longer we deny it and run away, the slower the healing will be. It seems radically counter-intuitive, but the fastest way to overcome the darkness of shame is to face it and run headlong toward it, with Jesus at our side.

Jesus shamed our shame on the cross at Calvary

Isaiah 61:7 (NIV) reads – Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.

Jesus has set every one of us free, but it’s up to us to decide to walk in that freedom.

You too are free to choose to get up and get moving into the beautiful future God has planned for you. Choices really do determine destiny – and God has given you the power to choose! – Christine Caine

Love & blessings!
