The GT Weekend!
At Gracefully Truthful, weekends aren’t for “checking out”.
Use this time to invite the Almighty’s fullness into you life in a deeper way!
Saturdays and Sundays are a chance to
reflect, rest, and re-center our lives onto Christ.
Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with other women in prayer,
rest your soul in reflective journaling,
and spend time worshiping the Creator who
longs for intimacy with each of us!

1) When we talk with people that believe some Christian tenants, it’s much more comfortable to accept them as believers. It’s important to carefully discern what the person, or religion, believes and check it with Scripture. The core, non-debatable truths of Scripture must align or it’s some form of untruth. How have you prepared to identify untruth? How can you engage and ask questions to help them see the Gospel clearly?
2) We know Jesus + nothing = EVERYTHING. Nothing needs to be added to it or taken away from it to include completion. Where have you been tempted to believe untruth? It could be something big blatantly false or something small like believing “I need to work hard for God so He will love me.” Take time this week to sort through your deep-seated beliefs and assess any untruths that might be lingering.
3) Questions are a great place to begin with your atheist friend. What questions would you start with? How would you respond when you don’t know the answer to one of the questions? A great starting place is a question you had previously that you found a good, Biblical answer to! Don’t worry about knowing all the answers; trust the Holy Spirit to lead you and go find the answer to bring back to them!
Praying Scripture back to the One who wrote it in the first place is a great way to jump start our prayer-life! Pray this passage from Matthew 7:15-20 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
15 “Be on your guard against false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves. 16 You’ll recognize them by their fruit. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? 17 In the same way, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that doesn’t produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So you’ll recognize them by their fruit.
Father, we want to see Your face more clearly. Let us know Your word intimately and completely so when we’re met with false teachings, we can recognize them as the deceptions they are. As we try to discern someone’s belief, give us grace Lord, to not come across as self-righteous. Clothe us in your humility as we gently prod to find our friend’s thought process.
Lord, I know I have untruths buried deep in my heart. Things I subconsciously believe about You or about myself. I would guess Lord, there are even some mistruths I believe about other people in my life. Remove those, Lord, and replace them with Truth from your Word.
