Psalm 138 – June 25

Read the passages this week and think about these questions Psalm 138 Philippians 1:6; 2:9-11 Psalm 136   What is David’s response to God? Why does David give thanks and sing praises? What can you give thanks and praise for? How has God shown you His lovingkindness and truth? How has God answered your prayers? Why can David walk in confidence? How is God accomplishing His purpose in your life?

Psalm 23 – June 18

What does this Psalm teach us about God?     Can you give a one word description of God or what He does for us for each phrase/sentence in Psalm 23? Does Psalm 23:6 describe the desire of your life? Because…

Are you reminding yourself of God’s goodness by reading His Word? Why should we tell and teach others (next generation) the greatness of God? Who have you told about God’s greatness and wonderful works? Do you forget God’s blessings and rebel against His ways? How did God…

Read the passages this week and think about these questions Psalm 1 Deuteronomy 30:19-20 Matthew 7:13-14, 24-27 John 18:15-27 Luke 22:54-62   What two types of people are described? What two paths are available?  Which path are you on? What does a blessed/godly man “not” do?  How was Peter an example of this digression from following Jesus? What does a blessed/godly man do?  How much time do you spend per day or per week reading God’s Word?  Is this something you enjoy doing? What…

Overview of Psalms

During the months of June, July, and August we will be looking at thirteen different psalms during Bible study.  The Book of Psalms, which means “hymns of praise”, uses music, prayers, and poetry to give us insight into the greatness of God.  The one hundred fifty psalms are broken down into five books: book 1 (1-41 with 1-2 as an introduction), book 2 (42-72), book 3 (73-89), book 4 (90-106), book 5 (107-150 with 146-150 as a conclusion).  They are written by…

Get in the Word

This past Sunday in our study of James 4:13-17, we talked about not leaving God out of our plans.  We also looked at knowing God’s will.  If we want to know God, His will, and allow Him to direct our paths, then we must get in the Word.  We must spend time reading the Bible and meditating on it. In an article by Dwayne McCrary, he looks at what Brad Waggoner calls “daily Bible engagement”.  Waggoner claims this is the…

How to Read the Bible for Yourself

God has given us His Word so we will know Him better.  He has also given believers the Holy Spirit to teach them His Word.  While it is good to have people explain the Bible to us, God also wants us to read it and understand it ourselves.  In this article, John Piper gives some tips for reading the Bible. http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/how-to-read-the-bible-for-yourself

Bored with the Bible?

Hebrews 4:12 says, “the Word of God is living and active.” It’s full of adventure, drama and God’s love, grace, and mercy.  The Word also shapes us as believers. So, if the Word is so important, “Why are so many Christians bored with the Bible?” Check out this article by Marshall Segal.
