John 8 - The Harlot

Here's the "personal" version of our ladies' bible study on John 8 (minus large and small group discussion).  Use the outline and questions below to engage the Lord and the scripture on your own time.  

JOHN 8:1-11

Ask God to speak to you today as you read.  Consider using this scripture to pray for understanding:  Ephesians 1:17-18: I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he called you.

READ the scripture...

Find John 8:1-11 in your Bible or favorite bible translation.  As you read, journal or take notes and prayerfully ask the Lord these questions.  (If you like ambient music to listen to AS you read, try this playlist:  Ambient Bible Study Playlist 7.3.12)
  1. God, what part of this scripture are you highlighting for me today?
  2. What do you want to say to me through this? In regard to my life? In regard to who You are or what You're doing?
  3. Now that You have spoke, how do you want this to change the way I live? How can I apply this to my life, God?
  4. Write down any questions that you have in regard to scripture.
LISTEN to this song/story/scripture...

MOVING FORWARD Ideas & Questions:
  • Read through this passage and/or story and/or song for a week, at least once per day.  Continue to journal your thoughts, your prayers, your questions, etc.
  • Do you identify more with the adulterous woman or the “congregation of the righteous?”
  • Were you surprised at what Jesus did?  How He reacted to The Harlot’s/your sin?  Are you acquainted with the kind of Man who loves you passionately?  Pray that He’d reveal Himself to you, and that He would tell you what HE thinks of you.
  • Do you feel clothed in Beauty, or are you still sitting in your “old clothes” of the past and condemnation?  Why?  Pray for redemption and freedom in your life!
  • Look up some of the verses listed below...scripture that the song is based on.
