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.


Despite persecution, internal conflict, shortcomings, sin, rejection, and suffering, the Church endures because it is Christ who sustains it.

Discussion Question: What have you learned about the Church in this reading plan? 

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.

    The study reaffirmed God’s vision of being in community with other siblings in Christ…His Church. Not a physical building nor a denomination. Just being in community with fellow followers called to be obedient. As I continue in this next chapter of life…it means finding a new church though there are aspects (I.e. Celebrate Recovery, my Discipleship band) that still constitute church and help plug me in to God’s will. I have to branch out of a church community that is more diverse and unlike me.

    How important others are in the church and that no one is perfect. We may seem that way, but we are all broken. We need each other.

  3. Hannah Brown says:

    Christ needs to be the cornerstone. We need to fight for unity

  4. Rachel Austin says:

    Revelation 12 says that Michael and his angels will be deployed to overthrow Satan. Yet God calls this the victory of the church. “11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.”
