Six Ways We Encounter God
is a six-week small group experience that gives participants an opportunity to learn about different qualities of God’s character and discuss the ways they are encountering God in their daily lives. This six-session study is designed for small group use with the Participant Book and Leader Guide. Each weekly session can be streamed or you can purchase the DVD that includes all six video sessions.
The goal of this week’s session titled "God’s Graciousness and My Love of Others" is to consider how God’s abundant grace can free us to love others. This grace is freely given by a loving and holy God and is based not upon our own merit or favor but simply on God’s abundant generosity in bestowing it upon us. The video uses a prison to illustrate that our lives often are bound by the burdens of sin and feelings of anger, frustration, or hurt. Receiving God’s grace and experiencing God’s graciousness are essential to our freedom from traits that make us unholy. As we encounter God’s holiness through grace, we often find that God’s graciousness toward us leads to our greater love and grace for others. Not only are we set free from our burdens, but in turn we are able to bless others with the same grace God has extended to us. The holy God entrusts us with grace to reflect the Kingdom here on earth. This is session six of a six part series.
