Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 9

Understanding the Book of 2 Timothy

Today we will read through the book of 2 Timothy.  Paul writes to his son in the faith Timothy, after being imprisoned once again.  Since Paul doesn’t expect release this time, he encourages Timothy to come visit him and also gives Timothy instructions to carry on the ministry.   This video from the Bible Project will help you better understand the book.  Read and apply the truth you discover.

RC Students – Patience

Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 2

God wants to equip us for good works and He knows we need correcting and training in order for this to happen.  Therefore, we need to be reading the Bible and allowing Him to mold us and shape us.  “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)  Allow the Scriptures to work…
