Focusing on God’s Word

By Susan Hill

We believe Bible study is critical for spiritual development and helping people move toward a Christ-centered life. The “F” function of the Transformational Life Strategy focuses on the study of God’s Word.

Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is living and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even
to divide soul and spirit, joints, and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

 So what does the “F” leader do?

The “F” leader will focus on preparing biblically sound lessons and encouraging group members to spend time daily in the Word. Also, the “F” leader will lead the other three leaders of the Transformational Life Team to insure the various functions of the LIFE Group are accomplished.

Leading a LIFE Group is both a tremendous privilege and responsibility. The goal is to help group members understand how God’s Word is relevant to them and to help them explore practical ways they can be obedient and apply the truths of Scripture to their lives.

As LIFE group members become active members of biblical community, the hope is they will devote themselves to scripture and be conformed to the image of Christ in increasing measure.

 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed
and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training
in righteousness, so that the servant of God
may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

 As a LIFE Group leader, you will have the incredible privilege of making spiritual deposits into your people’s lives on a regular basis. Your group members will likely seek you out to ask questions and talk about what is going on in their lives. As you focus on God’s Word, you will have the opportunity to point them to Jesus Christ and to teach them scriptural truth that they can apply to everyday life.
