Bible Reading Plan for Week of November 10

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seen in me – put it into practice.  And the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:8-9)  The Bible is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.  Spend time in the Word this…

Understanding the Book of Jeremiah

Today, for the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan (Sept – Nov 2019) we will begin reading the book of Jeremiah.   Because it is the longest book (word wise) in the Bible it will take us several weeks to read through it.  Jeremiah’s ministry comes after Zephaniah, and he brings God’s prophetic word to Judah.  “Judgment is one of the all-pervasive themes in Jeremiah’s writings, though he was careful to point out that repentance, if sincere, would postpone the inevitable.”…

Understanding the Book of Zephaniah

Today, for the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan (Sept – Nov 2019) we will be reading the book of Zephaniah.  The author announces to Judah God’s approaching judgment.  “Zephaniah’s main theme is the coming of the day of the Lord, when God will severely punish the nations, including apostate. Judah.”  However, there is hope because God is merciful to His people. Here’s a video from the Bible Project that will help you understand the book of Zephaniah better.

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…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of October 20

Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”  As you read this week, allow God to perform surgery on you and remove the sinful thoughts and actions.  May this living book meet you where you are and give you what you need.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of October 13

“Oh how I love your law!  It is my meditation all the day.  Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me.  I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation.” (Psalm 119:97-99)  May the readings this week focus our attention on God, and may the Bible give us wisdom and understanding as we meditate on it.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups…

Understanding the Book of Isaiah (part 2)

Today, for the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan (Sept – Nov 2019) we will be in the book of Isaiah.  Over the next few days we’ll be looking at a section that describes the Messianic King, God’s servant.  As you read, see Jesus in the pages and experience His presence and power in your life. Here’s another video from the Bible Project that will help you understand the book of Isaiah better.  It covers Isaiah 40-66.

Bible Reading Plan for Week of October 6

When you read through the Scriptures this week delight in God’s Word and treasure what you are reading.  Think about the truths that are before you.  Allow them to shape and change you.  After reading may we have a deeper relationship with God.  “In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.  I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.  I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of September 29

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”  (Psalm 119:105)  The Bible is very important as it tells us who God is, what He’s like, and how we should respond to Him.  The Scriptures also give us guidance in order to live a life that is pleasing to Him and worthy of Him.  Allow the passages this week in the Bible Reading Plan to help you draw close to God and give you direction…

Understanding the Book of Hosea

Today, for the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan (Sept – Nov 2019) we will start reading in the book of Hosea.  Hosea is one of the “minor prophets”, and this book helps us understand God’s great love for us.  Through Hosea’s actions toward his wife we catch a glimpse of God’s faithfulness to His rebellious people.  The prophet is calling God’s people to repent and return to Him.  As you read, examine your own life and draw close to the…
