Bible Reading Plan for Week of November 3

Too often we need a new way of thinking.  We need to reject the thought pattern of this world and grab hold of the mind of Christ.  How can we do this?  Renew your mind by reading the Bible.  “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good, and acceptable, and perfect.” (Romans 12:2)  God’s Word reveals who…

Understanding the Book of Nahum

Today, for the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan (Sept – Nov 2019) we will be in the book of Nahum.  This book describes the downfall of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria.  After a time of repentance Nineveh’s destruction was temporarily averted (see book of Jonah).  However, they return to their evil ways and God brings about their downfall, which would bring comfort to Judah.  Their downfall serves as an example for other nations as well.  God is sovereign and the…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of October 27

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…
