Welcome to the Renew blog, a Six Step Bible Study.
We are a united group of Ladies from the UK, who believe in the transforming power of the Word of God for our lives. We meet every Wednesday at Create church, (part of Rising Brook) in Huntington and would love to welcome you to our group, if you live local.
We are now on our sixth week of studying the book of John but before we begin and read Rachael’s study, let’s have a bit of a re-cap.
In our first week we looked at John Chapter 1 where Jesus called His first disciples. (This study isn’t on the blog yet but we’re hoping to put it on soon). The main point we looked at was Jesus’ question to His disciples, “What do you want?” Their response was to ask Jesus, “Where do you abide?” Little did they know, this was the correct answer! Jesus then took the disciples on a journey, which we are now following in the book of John.
Our first blogpost was centred around John Chapter 2 and Jesus’ first miracle at a wedding, where He turned water into wine, which we translated as turning meaningless religion into joy. See post Say cheers to endless joy
We then watched Jesus discuss the logic of religion with Nicodemus and the Woman at the Well, followed by Him healing the Officer’s Son from afar and freeing and healing a disabled man from his religious attitude and disability. Last week we studied how Jesus was given the authority to do such things and we talked about His communion with the Father. (See post for whose glory).
This week we are looking at another great miracle in John Chapter 6. Throughout Jesus’ ministry we discover that He is continually showing and teaching His disciples HOW to do things and this week we witness a little test for Philip!
