Unashamed - Run, Don't Hide


UNASHAMED
Session 1

Hey, OBSers! Here’s this week’s happenings for our study.

This is your SUGGESTED guide for the week to help you keep up in the Bible study!




·       What We’re Reading This Week... Run, Don’t Hide
o   Study Guide – pages 11-30


Shame is the intensely painful feeling or experience of that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of acceptance and belonging...Guilt says, You’ve done something bad. Shame says: ‘You are bad.” ~ Brene Brown

Christine summarizes it this way: “Guilt is about my do. Shame is about my who.”

If we’re alive on planet Earth we’re sure to experience shame. Shame from what we’ve done, shame for what was done to us, shame that is a straight-up lie from the pit of Hell.

But, with the eternal Word of God, we will learn that the Jesus who loves us is way bigger than anything in our past and He longs for us to no longer be shackled by shame but instead face a future filled with hope and purpose.

Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame. — Isaiah 50:7

Scriptures we will be reading this week

·       Psalm 139:1–14.
·       Luke 15:11–24

Let’s Chat:

Observe — Our theme this week is “God can and does redeem anything and He is able to turn all things around to work together for good.”

Bible — This week’s verse is - Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ JesusRomans 8:1

Stretch – A lot of times we feel such shame that we never recover from what we did because we cannot separate our “who” from our “do”.

I can’t wait to start getting rid of my junk and finding greater freedom with Jesus! How about you?

Here’s to a great week of #OBS 



Love & blessings,
Cheryl

Nice vs. Kind

The nice person is focused on himself – he does nice things in order to be perceived (by others and by himself...
