Healthy, living things grow. It is a common reality in nature, and it is a reality in the Bible. Coming to a saving faith in Christ is described in the Bible as new birth and new life (John 3 is one example). If you are alive in Christ and are spiritually healthy, you should be marked by growth: growth in maturity, growth in knowledge of God, growth in affections for God, growth in love of neighbor, growth in charity, growth in service. Growth is not only natural, in God’s family, it’s expected. The writer of the book of Hebrews tells his audience: “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food.” (Hebrews 5:12) Ouch! How would you feel if God’s word called you out as being in the spiritual nursery? Unfortunately, more of us may be in that situation than we would think. “By this time you ought…” How long do you think “this time” is? A week? A month? A year? A decade? Truth be told, in God’s economy, there is the expectation that a disciple should always be growing. We want to be a family that is living, thriving, and GROWING. Discipleship University is an attempt to help each other grow.

RECLAIM, RESTORE and REBUILD

If sexual brokenness—homosexuality or transgenderism—has touched your family, you’re on a painful and challenging journey. But you’re not alone.

Although Nehemiah lived more than two thousand years ago, he would have understood what you’re going through. He dealt with brokenness, weakness, and powerlessness in the face of his circumstances. His heart was broken over unfulfilled dreams. He is a role model for the challenges you face because he endured so much, yet he obeyed God and fulfilled God’s purposes for his life. His life reminds us that we often do not choose the circumstances God allows in our lives, but we can learn to make the best of them.

As you study portions of Nehemiah and the armor of God, you’ll learn to apply principles from these passages to help you reclaim and rebuild your relationship with a sexually broken family member or friend.
