When studying the Bible, I know this class has helped me spiritually by enabling me to interpret passages more thoughtfully. I think it is common for Christians to be a little fuzzy on different points of theology if we are not intentional in working through what the Bible specifically teaches. This class has caused me to process a wide variety of subjects that really matter in every day life. I have much greater clarity on difficult areas such as the Trinity, the role of the Holy Spirit, the nature of Christ and many more. The best part is being able to discuss within our group and having the encouragement of other believers.
The biggest challenge has been our case study application questions from the notebook. These are real-to-life scenarios where we rehearse how to share the knowledge about what we are learning with others. We don’t just regurgitate an answer, but we have to critically think through how to approach individuals in our circles with what God’s Word actually says. These are hands-on practice conversations you either have already had or probably will have.
Although anyone would benefit from the program, I especially believe all who are leaders or teachers in any way would be wise to go through this excellent training course. Exploring more deeply the subjects covered in this class will enable those who lead to be more effective in discipleship. Those who are giving of themselves need nourishment as well…and this is perfect for that.
