BSF (Bible Study Fellowship)
A long time ago brother Mike mentioned BSF to me. He was a facilitator with BSF and I was running the Stephen Ministry at my church. To be honest, I didn't think I needed something like BSF because I was an "active member" of my church in a leadership position. What I didn't know was, I DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE! My marriage was falling apart and I never recognized it because it was not a marriage based on The Word. When my wife filed for divorce without warning after 22 years of marriage, I was devastated beyond belief. I was literally on my knees begging God for help. And He provided it - in the form of brother Mike who not only suggested BSF again, but went so far as to provide me with the meeting and contact information in my area. I joined in January and have not missed a meeting since (knock on wood). It has changed my life and I thank God ( and Mike) for that. This week's lesson - Matthew 19. It's about marriage and divorce - a tough one for me. Just a quick suggestion for those of you who are newly wed, not so newly wed, or about to be newly wed - take a little time to read Matthew 19 and talk about it together. If you find you have a problem with what's written there, then talk some more.
