Welcome to week one of our creative bible study on identity and God’s love.
What is identity and how do we know if ours is in Christ? This month we are focusing on God’s unfailing love for us, as we examine scripture to embrace the truth: WE ARE LOVED and create a banner proclaiming it.
Here’s to getting creative and studying God’s word. ⠀
TOPIC: Identity : loved
KEY PRAYER VERSE: Ephesians 3:14-19
READING: Matthew 3 -4, 1 Corinthians 10:1-13
IDENTITY : LOVED - Week 1 // Inspire Weekly
This week we focus on defining what identity is, allowing ourselves to be defined by who God says we are and how temptation plays a key role in it.
Each week we feature songs that tie into what we are studying. Praying they convey these truths and more as you take time to listen to the heart and lyrics behind them.
YOU ARE LOVED - Ellie Holcomb
HIS BANNER OVER ME IS LOVE - Christy Nockels
MARVELOUS LIGHT - ELLIE HOLCOMB
CHRIST IN ME - Tim Timmons
CREATE IT // Banner Basics
As you get started on creating your banner, I thought I would share a few simple and easy ways to add some character to it.
STRING IT TOGETHER
Starting from the back, pull your string through the front to make it visible on the front.
Starting in the front, pull string towards the back to expose it only at the edges.
ADD SOME SHAPE
Cut your pieces your way. The left is a sample of a dovetail cut and the right is gonfalon. I measured up 3/4” but you can do whatever you like.
To see the full tutorial and how to tie a loop for hanging, watch the video below.
Let me know if you have any questions and I am happy to help as I can.
INSPIRE + ENCOURAGE OTHERS
What has the Lord been speaking to you throughout the study? What have you been creating? We would love to share and encourage others with what you are learning and creating as you study. Tag us with #findthejoytoday
