Project for Growth from BCT Module 1

(Written the other night)

Tomorrow, we’ll be studying the second module of the Overseas Instruction in Counseling’s Biblical Counseling Training. However, I’m not yet done with the projects for growth from the first module. Since I have so little time left and this is where I could write continuously, I figured this would be the best to write the first project here. The instructions? Read and study the Book of Ephesians. List at least ten personal applications, things that challenged and changed you. List ten sections (passages of at least several verses) that could be developed into a sermon or small group lesson.

10 Personal Applications
1. Resting in God for my salvation, not just in my justification, but also in my sanctification and glorification
2. Drawing near to the throne of mercy and turning away from sin
3. Having an intimate relationship with other believers, belonging to a trust-filled community, enjoying fellowship, and interceding in prayer
4. Pursuing holiness
5. Grasping that God’s love is infinite
6. Preserving the unity of the body, serving with my gifts, and studying Scripture
7. Shifting the focus from myself to Christ and seeing others through forgiving eyes
8. Living wisely with accountability and thanksgiving
9. Obeying and honoring my parents
10. Equipping myself for battle with the things of God — who He is, who i am in Him, and what He has revealed
