Winter Women’s Bible Study: Fully Pleasing God

Of all of our aims and goals and New Year’s resolutions, one ultimate purpose encompasses them all: Pleasing God. Paul exhorts his readings in Ephesians 5: Find out what pleases the Lord. As believed children of God, this is our life calling. the whole book of Colossians flows out of Paul’s prayerful heart for these faithful believers. “And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:9-10). As we journey through this letter, we will set our hearts on this one goal: Fully pleasing God. We’d be so honored if you’d join us.
