The Lost Series - Link Up Party

The Lost Series - Link Up Party

Sisters - How did you enjoy the study? We want to know! 

At the end of each study, HOMWF will have a 'link up' party! We're calling it a "HEART TO HEART"! We are sisters, we are community. Just because we are from all over, doesn't mean we shouldn't/can't sit down over virtual coffee and share with each other how God is blessing us through these studies!

The Lost Son // Part 6

The Lost Son // Part 6

Ultimately, what do we learn from this whole parable? Mercy. Mercy? Although the word is never once stated the Father is ultimately showing us how loving and merciful He is. Come on, He opened his arms and welcomed his son back, no questions asked. He showed a kind of love to the son that was completely and totally self-sacrificial. This is the kind of love that we are asked to give and show on a daily basis!

The Lost Son // Part 5

You better believe that the jolly green giant of jealousy was right there in that moment when he hears the music and dancing. I know that my jaw would have dropped and I would be stomping around the house like a mad woman. Think about it though, he has been consistently working for the Lord and not faltering in his faith in the Father. He knows that this is where he will always find what he needs.

The Lost Son // Part 3

The Lost Son // Part 3

When it was my time to go to college I chose to go to this little rinky-dink town in Ohio, nearly 3000 miles from good ole Rancho Cucamonga (my California hometown). That was a 36 hour drive, without stops, about an 8-9 hour travel day by plane and too far to comprehend by train or foot.

The Lost Son // Part 2

So the son goes off into a distant land, away from his father. Many of us have a conversion story. Many can relate it to being in a dark spot, away from God in search of who they are. Did you catch that though? A dark spot away from God. This is similar to the son, in both situations it is in a place away from God.

The Lost Coin // Part 2

The Lost Coin // Part 2

How would we describe our relationship with God? Can we say that we seek Him every day with a steady, earnest, and energetic effort? Because that's how the woman in the parable seeks the lost coin -- with diligence. Not only does God do this with us, but we are called to do it with Him as well. After all, a relationship is a two-way street.

The Lost Sheep // Part 3

The Lost Sheep // Part 3

We easily identify the shepherd as a Christ figure in the parable of the lost sheep, and it's not just because Jesus is telling the story. He refers to himself as the Good Shepherd in John 10:14-16, and we find similar imagery throughout the entire Bible. It's also easy to picture him as the shepherd because we often find ourselves lost and need to find our way back to God. However, as we reflect further on this parable, it can also be fruitful to place ourselves in the role of the shepherd.

The Lost Sheep // Part 2

When we get lost in life, we do this interesting thing where we take a while to admit it. Whether it's driving in some new cities, trying to get our life back on track, or simply changing our mind/plan, there's a moment where we have to accept that we could use some clarification.

New Bible Study Starting Sept 1, 2014!

You might be thinking of a big island in the middle of no where. But in this series we will be looking at the "Lost". In Luke 15, we will read about the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin, and the Lost Son (a.k.a. the Prodigal Son). In this 2 week study, we'll look at what it means to be "lost" and what it means to be "found".
