Women's Wednesday

The Holiness of God

 

On the first Wednesday evening of every month, the women of New Covenant meet together for dinner a sweet time of fellowship and Bible study. Here's what the women are studying now:

Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 6th, at 6:15 p.m., Michelle Shepherd will host  a 6-lesson study from the book The Holiness of God, by R. C. Sproul, which will be held at Michelle's home, 615 Dalcross Dr., Richmond Hill, GA.  This study will meet the 1st Wednesday of each month and will continue through Feb. 7, 2018.  The meal theme for September is “Soup & Salad” so if you are able, please bring soup, salad, bread or dessert to share.  If you do not have time to prepare something, don’t let that prevent you from coming. This is a great time to join us as we begin this new study together to discuss The Holiness of God. Please feel free to bring a friend along also.  For more information, please email her at michelle.shepherd23@gmail.com  and let her know if you need a book.  There is also an optional study guide upon request. 

This book will cover such topics as:

1 - The Importance of Holiness

2 - The Trauma of Holiness

3 - Holiness and Justice

4 - The Insanity of Luther

5 - The Meaning of Holiness

6 - The Holiness of Christ

 

Here is a description from Ligonier Ministries:


The Holiness of God examines the meaning of holiness and why people are both fascinated and terrified by a holy God. This series closely explores God’s character, leading to new insights on sin, justice, and grace. The result is a new awareness of our dependence upon God’s mercy and a discovery of the awesomeness of His majestic holiness. Dr. R.C. Sproul says, “The holiness of God affects every aspect of our lives—economics, politics, athletics, romance—everything with which we are involved.”  Now celebrating 25 years of publication, this classic can help you better understand the biblical picture of God’s awesome holiness and why it is so foundational to God-centered, God-honoring theology and Christian living. In The Holiness of God , R.C. Sproul demonstrates that encountering God’s holy presence is a terrifying experience. Dr. Sproul argues that this struggle is nonetheless necessary because it is the only way to cure our propensity to trust in ourselves and our own righteousness for salvation. 

 

“This book is a game-changer! Everything in our lives and ministries begins and ends with a soul-gripping awareness of God’s infinite holiness. These dramatic chapters, written in high-impact fashion, reveal what the holiness of God is and how it should revolutionize our lives.” —Steven Lawson
