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.

Scripture illustrates the relationship between Christ and His Church through the imagery of a wedding. As the bridegroom, Christ loves, provides for, and sacrifices Himself for His bride, who responds to His love in preparation and submission.

Today, along with responding to the reading, share with the community in the comments why you wanted to engage with this reading plan. What are you hoping to learn more about?

    I started this plan as my family and I are hoping to plant a church in our local area and I wanted to refocus my thoughts on the importance of community, fellowship and being together as a church

    Me and my wife were really hurt by the church in 2015 . God seperated us from the church system . We live in a community at a seaside town called bridlington. We have been apart of a bridegroom community online since then . We also visits cafes and spend time with other believers who are spiritual in other ways . We shine the light for Jesus. I wanted to find believers who are getting themselves ready for the Return of our king Jesus . I found this this morning as my wife and are looking for daily readings other than the bible app .
    God bless you all x

    I started this study as I begin to work through going back to church after a time away due to a hurt from my former church.

    I started this series to better understand what a church really is and how I can promote such an environment for growth within my own community.

  6. Brooke Zeolla says:

    I started this series as an introduction back into God’s word as I had fallen off a bit from reading it for a while. I have had mixed feelings about the church recently, which was part of what has drove me away, so wanted to gain so,e clarity through His word.
