Below are the 5 suggestions for our theme scripture focus. Before choosing one of these Scripture passages, remember that one of PWOC’s most important tasks is to help women know how to read God’s Word.
Check back over our processing to see the major points we discussed.
Look at the passages in their larger context, and ask yourself,
“What was the original intent when this was written?”
Whatever theme verse we choose will be the foundational scripture that will inform our Bible study series, programs, songs, retreat(s), etc.
2 Tim. 2:1-2
1You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
1 Thess. 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Ephesians 4:1- 6
1 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
