Several weeks ago I learned about a website called shereadstruth. I probably won’t do it justice here, so please check it out for yourself, but it is an online Bible study for women.  It’s free, and you don’t have to buy anything to participate.  There are study workbooks available to purchase if you want, and as they were starting a new series on 1 & 2 Peter, I bought the workbook and have been doing the study.  You can also sign up for a daily email where the scripture and reading show up in your inbox.

Ya’ll I can’t say enough good things about shereadstruth.  The writing is spot on and it is doable.  Is that even a real word?  I’ve done a lot of women’s Bible studies over the years, and some of them take a chunk of time to do.  I love that shereadstruth isn’t personality driven.  There’s no big name Christian person attached to it, not that that’s a bad thing.  I’m just attracted to the fact that this is different.  Here is the website if you want to take a look:

So on Day 7 of this study, we were looking at 1 Corinthians 15:21-22, which says “For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.”  The author wrote these beautiful words next to the scripture: God is the extravagant and gracious includer.  I loved that!  The gracious includer.  The extravagant and gracious includer!  The thoughts this conjures up in my mind include the lost, the lame, the sick, the brokenhearted, the suffering. Or as Isaiah 61 points out, the captives, those who are bound, those who mourn, the devastated.  All graciously and extravagantly included and made alive in Christ Jesus.  This is the good news.
