In this six-session small group Bible study, Pursuing God s Beauty, Margaret Feinberg looks at six stories of beauty from the Gospel of John that illustrate how God s beauty is present in your life.
God created us to be drawn toward beauty created us to pursue beauty so that we might know more about His character, attributes, and work in our world. Perhaps no book of the Bible paints a clearer picture of this than the Gospel of John.
Throughout John s Gospel, the beauty of God radiates in the person of Jesus Christ the one in whom God displayed His whole heart for the world to see. It s within the person of Jesus that we find the invisible attributes of God being made visible, on display like fine pieces of artwork to be enjoyed, celebrated, and reflected on.
This Participant Guide includes six sessions that can be adapted to any number of weeks. It includes ideas for experiential activities and icebreakers, and five after-hours studies per session for those who want to dig deeper into Scripture at home. Pursuing God s Beauty reveals breathtaking portraits of the salvation, redemption, and restoration that God the Artist longs to complete in us. Designed for use with the Pursuing God s Beauty DVD (sold separately).
