BY She Reads Truth

Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation.

As a community of people shaped by the gospel, the Church is called to love and serve one another, meeting each other’s needs and encouraging one another in godliness.

Discussion Question: How have you experienced God’s goodness through other believers? 

Take time to reflect on your Scripture reading and today’s question. Share what you are learning with others in the community in the comments.

    I just recently had a baby, and my church family and fellow believers have come out of the woodwork to provide meals, diapers, formula, baby clothes and all sorts of items to help us. Both of us receive encouraging words from our pastors and pastors wives. It genuinely is an uplift to receive.

    My husband and I moved to Colombia (South America) for a two-year Fulbright grant two weeks after our wedding. We quickly found an unfurnished apartment, but had only what fit in our suitcases with us. A neighbor and fellow believer lent us a mattress, bedding, towels, pots, pans, and dishes over the weekend and then her family took us to buy all of those things when the shops opened. Knowing where to purchase different items in a different country + being charged a “foreigner price” can be very stressful, so this meant so much to us! We gave back most of the things that we borrowed, but she insisted that we keep the dishes and a desk as long as we needed so we wouldn’t have to buy new ones. This generosity marked us and we hope to one day pass it forward.

    Over the years I have experienced God’s love through fellow believers through their bringing meals, care packages when I was sick, prayers for healing, visits in the hospital, being my prayer partner for 25 years, encouraging me to read the Bible and loving on me before I knew Jesus, the list goes on and on. I have been so blessed by my brothers and sisters in Christ. It has encouraged me to do likewise to my fellow believers as well as those who are yet on the way to becoming believers.
