Mimistry of Motherhood Book Club

This past Monday, I joined a Summer Book Club online at the Good Morning Girls website. It is a Bible Study and book club rolled into one. We will be reading the book, “Ministry of Motherhood” by Sally Clarkson and also doing daily bible studies for the next 12 weeks. I am planning to do a weekly review post about what I have learned each week. I will choose my favorite verse and share my “SOAP” entries with you. I will also share the Bible references and my personal prayers for the entire week. If you are interested in joining in, you can do so at anytime! Just go check out the website!

Week One

I chose Tuesday’s passage: John 15:4-5.

S- Write out the scripture passage for the day

Remain in me as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on it’s own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine and you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.

O- Write down 1-2 observations from the passage

1. When branches are taken from the vine, they begin the process of rotting. Even when a branch is wilted and brown, as long as it’s attached to the vine, it still has life within it. But when the branch is detached, there is no hope of life.

2. I cannot do anything without Jesus.

A-Write down 1-2 applications from the passage

1. If we do something without God or against His will, it may look okay for a few days but will start to “rot”. There will be no life in it.

2. Consult God before making descisions to see if it is in line with His will.

P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage

Lord, please show me the way to stay within your will for me. Continue to give me life so that I may bear much fruit for you! Amen.
