Online bible studies dating couples Reallifecam lina and serge
Before we get too far into this I want to let you know this isn’t about students dating or not dating within your student ministry. Instead, I want to point you to a specific issue that is often misunderstood by parents, by those who lead student ministries, and by the students themselves.The misunderstanding is that students who are dating should study the Bible together, on their own, and that it will help them grow spiritually together. It will also help your students to grow spiritually. The problem with the idea of a boyfriend and girlfriend studying it together is that it will draw them together more than just spiritually with the Lord.improving intimacy, improving communication, yada, yada, yada).Instead, we’ll go to the Source for ourselves and learn from God’s Word what he wants to teach us. For some time now, Meg and I have been struggling to find the right way to implement a joint Bible study between her and I.We’ve tried various methods and various studies, but none have panned out.Our approach: We’re going to begin just slowly working through a book of the Bible together.We’ve picked the book of James for a couple of reasons: 1) It’s my wife’s favorite book in the NT and 2) It’s a short book and makes for an obtainable goal as we set out. I love to read commentaries, but until recently never really considered using a commentary as a part of a couple’s Bible study since I didn’t think it would interest my lovely wife.
There is always drama involved with student ministry.
This is an intimate step and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Studying the Bible together will lead them to a deeper connection emotionally and physically that can’t be just “turned off.” These are exactly the things, at this age, that we want students to take slowly and healthily.
Much to my surprise then, was her suggestion of using a commentary to guide our study.
Just a quick aside: nothing says sexy to me like my wife reading a Bible commentary – seriously. I took a swing through the book of James and also through a commentary and came up with some natural divisions breaking down book into smaller “chunks.” This is where a commentary can be extremely helpful.
