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 people still being transformed into the likeness of Christ, the Church has fallen short and will continue to. Until Christ’s return, the Church is called to both individual and corporate repentance, knowing that Christ is faithful to forgive, sustain, and perfect His people.

Discussion Question: How is repentance demonstrated in today’s reading? 

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.

    Despite all of our sin and wrong doing, God is constantly there with forgiveness. And to receive forgiveness we must first offer it to others. And we need not to judge other, God does all the judging. We need only lead others with love.

  2. Leslie says:

    It shows true, honest confession of wrongdoing with no justifying or qualifying. It shows humbly asking God’s forgiveness. It shows God’s amazing grace and love. It shows receiving God’s forgiveness.

  3. Emma Simmons says:

    It shows that we need to give others the grace that God gives us. He gives us the opportunity to repent and others as well. Some people choose to and others do not God continually shows his grace to everyone not only in this community but all around the world and that is beautiful!

  4. Janie Diffly says:

    Seek first God and His Righteousness and all these things will be added unto you! (probably not per se). Seek and ye shall find. Thank Jesus for being our Saviour! Our absolution!

  5. Munchkin says:

    In James 4:5, it talks about making sure your motives are pure when you ask God for something, because he knows the desires of your heart. You have to repent in order to be right with God. You have to have a pure heart and not be in the ways of the world as James 4 says.

  6. Jessica C says:

    You don’t not desire a sacrifice or I would offer one. You do not want a burnt offering. The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God
