Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 4

“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…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of July 28

James 1:22 states, “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”  So God does want us to hear the Word, and in order to hear the Word we must be in the Word.  This week we’ll finish up the book of Proverbs and keep learning about the history of Israel.  However, don’t just hear the Word as you read, but also put it into practice.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our…

Colossians 3:16 encourages us to “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”  Soak up the Scriptures this week and then let them flow out of you in praise to God and comfort to others.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Sunday, July 21 – Psalm 81 Monday, July…

Understanding the book of Ecclesiastes

We are not 100% sure when the book of Ecclesiastes was written or who wrote the book.  However, God has some very important lessons for us to learn in the book.  Life is full of enigmas and there are many things to pursue in life, but without God none of these other things will satisfy.  The conclusion of the book is “The end of the matter; all has been heard.  Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the…
