For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. — Galatians 2:19-20
God’s acceptance through Christ is enough. ~ Jada Edwards
We all want to belong. Because we live in this broken world, brokenness tells us that we are not fully accepted, or loved, or worthy, or enough. So we forget who we are and Whose we are. When I think about belonging and approval or the lack of it, I remember being a little girl and my best friend whom I loved with all my heart. We did everything together our entire lives, peas in a pod – sleepovers, sat together at school, shared clothes, dance lessons, rode bikes, roller skated, played outside until dark, climbed trees, did all the kid things… until Jilly got a new best-er best friend. Suddenly, the earth moved beneath me and even though she didn’t exactly reject me, the subtle moving away, the preference of another birthed a sharp stabbing insecurity that dragged right into adulthood!
Does that ring a bell for you, too? Is there a place inside you that feels not accepted? Not quite worthy?
Well, friends, I can’t wait to invite you to the Galatians Online Bible Study with Jada Edwards! We’re going to dive into this epistle (letter) from Paul to the people of Galatia (modern-day Turkey) and be revived, filled with hope, purpose, power, freedom, and whole-hearted acceptance in Jesus Christ our Savior!
Have you met Jada yet? She is new to me, and I already love her and know you will, too! Jada is an on-fire mentor and teacher of the Word, a she’s very creative and authentic, and she’s a wife and mama as well.
There is nothing in your past, in your future, that you have done, or that has been done to you that will ever be stronger than the promise of Jesus Christ. ~ Jada
In this study we are going to learn that we are totally accepted in Jesus. No one else gets to weigh in about you or me. Just Him. He paid for you. You’re His.
The same grace that saved us is the same grace that will sustain us. ~ Jada
We have authority in Jesus.
We have restoration in our lives in Jesus.
If our family history is a messy story, it’s ok because we are adopted into the family of Christ in Jesus.
We have special good works to do on this earth for the Kingdom in Jesus.
The Gospel of Jesus is enough. It doesn’t require any additions. You are secure. I am secure. That is freedom!
It’s all about Jesus. Full stop. Jesus.
In Galatians, we are exhorted to go full-force for Him! Jesus owns my life. It’s His to do with what He wills.
Nothing gives us the acceptance that Jesus has already given. ~ Jada
Jada will teach us about:
- The Hidden Power of Acceptance
- Your Life is Rich in Purpose
- Approval in Christ > Human Approval
- The Truth About Your Inheritance
- You’ve Been Set Free for This
- Your Restoration Restores Others
Through Galatians may you find the comfort, wisdom, healing, and wholeness that comes from discovering your acceptance and authority in Christ alone. ~ Jada
Unacceptance doesn’t have the final word in our lives. Rejection doesn’t. The past doesn’t either. Feeling like we’re not quite enough has no space in the Kingdom of Christ. You are fully accepted and free in Jesus! Free to walk in bold purpose and wholeness leading to revival!
P.S. As always, there will be goodies!
