RC Students- Studying God’s Word Intentionally

In our most recent series, we have learned different ways, or approaches, to studying God’s Word. We learned that His Word is alive and is powerful. 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.”  His Word is powerful and  active in our lives, especially as we intentionally study…

RC Students – Spending Time With God

Some questions that students ask is, “How do I spend my time with God?” Or, a similar question would be, “When and where do you have time alone with God?” How do I spend my time with God? There could be many different answers to just those two questions. To begin with, one of the best things to do is to find a specific time and place to have a quiet time. In the Bible, Daniel models this for us as…

RC Students- Studying Your Bible

There are many reasons why studying the Bible is important. Not only do we get to know Who God is, but we also find our purpose. In addition to finding purpose, we find our delight in Him and His Word. Psalm 1 says, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord,…

RC Students- Studying the Bible

As students learned last week, it is very important to come prepared to study God’s Word. In our daily lives, people prepare for lots of different things, for example, a test, an event, an activity, a project, etc. One question that we must ask is, “Do we put the same kind of attention or tenacity into studying God’s Word for ourselves?” We are to prepare our hearts for our time with Him. Based on John 16:13-15, we are to trust…

RC Students- Salvation

What Does It Mean To Be “Saved?” As Christians, it is important that we understand our need for salvation so that we are able to communicate to others their need to be saved. Some might question, “Saved from what?” The direct and simple answer is “saved from our sin, ourselves, and our rebellion against God.” Even in our southern culture we wrongly assume everybody knows about Jesus. We may find ourselves answering the question,  “What does it mean to be…

RC Students- Waiting A While: Patience

Many of us know someone who has the qualities of being a “patient person.” Meaning, that in their actions, behavior, and lifestyle, they clearly model patience as a part of understanding life. Patience is one of those things that, if we are truly honest, most of us struggle mightily with. We all tend to want what we want, and we want it immediately. These characteristics blend over into our work, life, school, actions, behaviors, and so on. For believers, the…

RC Students – Patience: Making A Mess

Has there ever been moments in your life when you have grown impatient with God? Maybe you are experiencing that right now, due to Covid19? Or, maybe there was a time in your life when you were seeking God for answers, of course patiently waiting, and you felt that God was not listening? Because of that, you chose to move ahead of God instead of wait for His timing. The truth is, God listens and He answers, not necessarily in…

RC Students – Patience

Since the month of March, many people’s lives, schedules, and plans have changed due to Covid19. The country experienced a pandemic, shutdown, loss of jobs, working from home, school closures, mandatory mask wearing,  hand sanitizing, and social distancing. Most people have experienced an “interruption” into what they would call their “normal life.” Consequently, Covid19 has easily contributed to a lot of anxiety, insecurity, and even depression.
