This particular study is on everyday obedience...each lesson should only take you about 15 min to complete. I sometimes took longer because I'd get going off on a tangent. Squirrel!! I'm sure I'm the only one who ever has that problem. 🙄😂
I enjoyed the briefness of this study but also that it was diving me deep into the Word and the topic being studied. It really IS designed so you can be in the word each day. I mean, come on, who doesn't have FIFTEEN minutes a DAY?? If we don't have 15 minutes each day for God....as Trump would say, SAD!
These studies would be good for anyone but especially good for a working gals study group or a new moms study group as they seem to have the hardest time fitting in daily readings/teachings of the Word and for good reason.
I am going to be checking out other books in the author's 'Everyday' series as well!!
I was given an advanced copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
PS - the photo is the author explaining what the FOCUSed15 method is all about. There are actually quite a few pages dedicated to explaining the why and how of this method.
If you aren’t familiar with her Focused 15 series, Everyday Obedience would be a great place to begin. I love Katie’s Focused 15 method-it has transformed how I study and I am able to go deeper faster and pull more from the word than from any other method I have tried.
These studies use solid in-depth methodology in a very efficient format. I love the way the different days revisit the same passage of scripture so the reader can learn & glean even more applicable truths.
While I personally rarely stop at the 15-min mark, this study is flexible enough for people in any season of life.
Katie's metaphors and analogies are so honest and readable, that the reader trusts her as she gently encourages them to go deeper through Greek word study & cross-references.
This study changed my perspective on true obedience as a Christ-follower and the grace-filled freedom it holds.
The Bible is God, our Creator's, very Word to us. He wants us to know Him and delight in Him the way He knows and delights in us!! He wants to meet with us and speak to us everyday!! That's why I love Katie Orr's Everyday FOCUSed 15 study guides. Her study method is simple and for beginners all the way to seasoned Bible students. She gives you study tools and explains how to use them so you can, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, see and understand details as well as the bigger picture. (She even includes Cheat Sheets at the end of each chapter. 😊)
If you hunger for God and His Word, you will spend four weeks "sitting down at the table" in front of a short passage of Scripture. She teaches you how to see how that passage fits in with the rest of Scripture and then how to "dig in" to the passage one course at a time till you've "tasted" and discovered what the Lord has for you from it. You will learn in layers so that you will not be overwhelmed but want to learn more. The more time we spend digging into a passage and pondering it, the more likely we are to remember what we've learned which makes it available for the Holy Spirit to use to help us walk in His ways in our everyday lives.
Because of the constant, everyday battle between our sinful nature and the spirit, obeying the Father can be one of the most difficult things to do, especially when life is hard or when, like Moses, He calls us to do something we're not sure we want to do! But you will learn through this study that obedience is a right response to God's grace and leads to the abundant life He has planned for us.
If you want to do an intentional Bible study and learn to walk purposefully in God's grace, then Everyday Obedience is for you. You will learn so much from Colossians 3 as well as from what Katie has to say about Sir Lancelot and chocolate milk. 😊
