MORE ABOUT HEART OF A WOMAN - Focus Scripture: Psalm 139:23-24 - Length: Nine Weeks -Written by: Laurie Aker As Christians, we too often ignore the symptoms of sin in our lives, and we don’t take the time, have the focus, or have the trust in the Lord that is needed to look inward to the root of our sin and deal with it. The Lord has called us to be holy as He is holy, so we want our hearts to reflect the holiness and righteousness of God Most High. But we have to be willing to do the hard work to see our sin from His perspective. In this intermediate-level discipleship study, women are led to begin asking the Lord to reveal to them what is deep and hidden within their hearts, so that they can confess and believe that they will be cleansed of sin and filled instead with the righteousness of Christ. The goal of this study is lasting heart transformation, not imparting more head knowledge. -Focus Scripture: Psalm 139:23-24 -Length: Nine weeks -Intermediate Level (45-60 min. daily) -Written by Laurie Aker

Memory Verses, Syllabus, and Commentary

MEMORY PASSAGE: Colossians 3:5-17 ESV Lesson 1: vv. 5-6 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. Lesson 2: vv. 7-8 In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. 8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Lesson 3: vv. 9-10 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Lesson 4: v. 11 Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Lesson 5: vv. 12-13 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Lesson 6: v. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Lesson 7: v. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Lesson 8: v. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Lesson 9: v. 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
