A Woman's Heart: God's Dwelling Place.....Questions for Weeks 7 & 8

Ladies, It is time to get together and study God's Word tomorrow evening over at Chatzy at 6:oo PM (CST). We will be discussing Weeks 7 & 8 of our very fascinating study on the Tabernacle. So let's get started:

Weeks 7 & 8: In the last two weeks we have studied more in depthly on the priests and then we got our first glimsp "Beyond the Veil", into the Holy of Holies. Amazing!

A couple of things I realized while studying these two weeks: 1). Priests could marry. I didn't realize that. 2). A Nazerite vow could be taken by women. I had previously thought only men could take that vow.


Question 1:

I'm taking this question right out of the book. On the bottom of page 138 there are three ways we can offer sacrifices to God:


Your "temple"


How did you answer this section?


Question 2:

The whole section on pages 140-141 about the Nazerite vow and purity really got me to thinking. Beth Moore states on page 141: "God never called us to naivete. He called us to integrity."

What is the difference in the two?

And How can we, as Christians, have integrity without being naive?


Question 3:

Read Hebrews 4:14-16. Then read I Corinthians 10:13.

In Hebrews 4:15, the writer tells us that Jesus our Christ was tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. Christ knows what it is like to be tempted, for He was tempted just as we are tempted, yet He did not sin. Now we find in I Corinthians 10:13 God will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear, but when we are tempted He provieds a way out so we can stand up under the temptation.

Has there ever been a time when you felt like you couldn't bear the temptation and had to give in? (You do NOT have to be specific). Yes or No

In light of this verse, how do you feel about temption?

And in the future if we put this verse into action, how might the outcome be different?

On page 147 Beth Moore says: "Every door of escape has been unlocked. Christ made absolutely sure of it by unlocking it personally."

On page 148 she states: "Two things about a believer's temptation never vary: (I). We always have an open door, a way out. (2). Every door we refuse to walk through makes the next one even harder to enter."........"Because the Holy Spirit's job is to convict us of sin, and He is never late for work. Remember, being tempted is not sin; refusing to take the way out is sin. Either way, it is a matter of resistance. We resist either the sin or the Holy Spirit."


Question 4:

On pages 163 & top of 164, Beth Moore lists 4 effects of God's glory in the life of one He invites (draws) to approach Him. I would love to discuss in depth all four of these, but because of time, I will ask you to pick one of the four to elaborate on from your own life experiences, which one speaks the most to you?


Note: Everything we need to know about God and our relationship with Him is found in the Bible. Love that and it is SO true!!!!!


Question 5:

Read Ephesians 3:14-19. I love that these verses describes the completeness of Christs' love for us. He reaches in every direction of our need: wide, long, high & deep is the love of Christ. His love toward us lacks nothing. It is complete.

What is the result of this love? (vs 19)

Given your current season in life, what does that mean to you?


Question 6:

At the end of week 8, we studied about the beautiful Mercy Seat. I don't have a question, I just would love for you to listen to this song and drink in God's wonderful provision for us, by the precious Lamb of God, His son. I tried to load this song, but blogger wouldn't let me, so please go to and put in the search Mercy Seat Vicki Yohe. It is such a beautiful song, and goes lovely with this part of our study.

I love you so ~~

See you Tuesday evening.....
