Living the Gospel in Relationships
Many Christian women struggle to live out what they believe.
While in their heads they know they are saved by grace, in their hearts they often feel distant from God and burdened by guilt.
They have a nagging sense of not being “good enough,” and the striving that results leaves little room for either peace or joy. They often feel the need to perform to earn the love of God and the love of others. In turn, their relationships with others often reflect this same performance mentality.
To top it off, as they face these struggles and difficult relationships, they sometimes feel utterly alone.
In the Peacemaking Church Women’s Study: Living the Gospel in Relationships, Tara Barthel brings the hope of the gospel to these issues of the heart. Tara unpacks how the gospel frees Christians from a performance-based mentality with God and others—helping women to remember anew God’s grace, and from that place of abundant love, learn how to give that same grace to others.
Throughout the eight 40-minute video sessions, Tara ties the power of the gospel to the biblical and practical principles of peacemaking:
Session 1: What It Means to Live the Gospel
Session 2: The Gap between What I Believe and How I Live
Session 3: My Real Problem Is …
Session 4: Real Hope for Lasting Change
Session 5: A Biblical Response to Conflict
Session 6: Repenting and Confronting
Session 7: Forgiveness and Mercy
Session 8: Relationships that Show the World Jesus
If you are interested in a women’s study that digs deep into Scripture and gets to the heart of our relational struggles–both vertical and horizontal–then please join the women studying the Peacemaking Church Women’s Study. You’ll be encouraged. You’ll be challenged. And most of all, you’ll see how the gospel is your hope in all of life, particularly in your relationships.
