Understanding the Book of Galatians

Today and tomorrow we will read through the letter to the Galatians, which is actually addressed to a number of churches in the region of Galatia.  The message of the Gospel is for all people, not just Jewish people.  Paul writes to help clear up some misunderstandings among these different cultures.  His letter helps us understand that the gospel of the crucified messiah creates a new, multiethnic family that is transformed by the Spirit.  The video below breaks down the…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of May 24

We all face temptation every day.  Even Jesus faced temptations.  In Matthew 4:1-11 when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness He responded with “It is written…”  Then he quoted a passage in Deuteronomy to combat the temptation.  Jesus was able to fight against the temptation to sin because He knew the Word of God.  This week spend time reading, meditating on, and memorizing Scripture so you can fight temptations to sin as well.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of May 17

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God … and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:10-11, 17)  The spiritual armor that we put on protects us from the enemy and we also have an offensive weapon in the Bible.  The “sword” can be used to combat the enemy’s lies with truth.  Take up  your “sword” this week and use it effectively.  On Saturday…

Understanding the Book of Acts (Ch 1-12)

We start reading in the book of Acts today, and this book describes how God worked in the early church.  Believers were empowered by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the good news of Jesus to accomplish the will of the Father.  There are many lessons that the current church can learn from reading this book.  Ask God to empower you to proclaim truth and accomplish His will.  

Bible Reading Plan for Week of May 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…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of May 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 John (part 2)

Today, we will be looking at Luke 22 and John 13 in our Bible Reading Plan.  In John 13 Jesus washes the disciples feet, and in the coming chapters He speaks to His disciples before being arrested and going to the cross.  Jesus loves through service and sacrifice and calls His followers to do the same.  This video can help you better understand the chapter in John that we will read in the coming days.  May we understand His great…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of April 26

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…

Understanding the Book of John (part 1)

Today, we look at Mark 11 and John 12 in our Bible Reading Plan.  The video below recaps John 1-12 and helps you review what we have been learning as we have studied the life of Jesus.  John shows us who Jesus is through several “I am” statements.  Jesus is still “presently” working and He desires that we know Him and make Him known.
