Get Real! What exactly does that mean?
- of or relating to fixed, permanent or immovable things
- of or relating to practical or everyday concerns or activities
- genuine, not artificial, no additives
- to stop deceiving oneself or fooling around; face reality
Real — it has become a relative term in our world today and hard to know at times what is real and what is not. Things are constantly in a state of flux —from our weather, to our economic and political situation and even our everyday lives at times. It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of whatever has blown into our lives at the moment. It’s easy to lose perspective. It’s easy to become discouraged and feel overwhelmed by all life is throwing at us. And our tendency and habit is to put on our “happy face” masks and walk around feeling isolated and alone, as if we are the only ones dealing with disappointment, discouragement and defeat.
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. —Romans 1:25
So where do we go for answers and how do we find purpose, joy, contentment and peace in the midst of life’s craziness?
Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. —Proverbs 30:5
But you are near, O Lord, and all your commandments are true. —Psalm 119:151
God’s Word and a growing relationship with Him are the answers we need! Are you willing to dig deep, and possibly get a little muddy along the way, in exchange for a life of joy, peace and contentment regardless of life’s circumstances? Join us for Get Real, a weekly Bible study, where we will unpack a truth from Scripture that will help us find real answers. But beyond just learning truth, we will seek to share ways we can make this truth a real, practical part of our daily lives —taking us from living in mere survival mode to thriving, even in the midst of life’s disappointments, discouragements and defeats.
When you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed in Him, you were also sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. —Ephesians 1:13
Jesus said to him, “ I am the way, and the truth, and the life. —John 14:6
“So Jesus said…if you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” —John 8:31
Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; —Psalm 25:5
Lessons and devotions will be posted each week. I hope you’ll make plans to join us, learn with us, share with us and grow with us.
