Bible Reading Plan for Week of September 23

In the first part of Genesis we discovered some important truths about God – He is eternal, Creator, holy, just, gracious and merciful.  As we keep reading in Genesis we are going to focus on the lives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and Joseph in the coming weeks.  God will not change and we will see how He is accomplishing His purposes through the lives of these individuals.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of September 16

This week will finish reading the book of Job.  Hopefully, you have gained some insights into how to help those who are suffering and also to realize that God sees us in our suffering and He does care.  We may not know the answer to “why” we suffer, but we can know “who” God is and trust His goodness.  The end of this week has us moving back to Genesis to begin looking at the life of Abraham.  On Saturday…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of September 9

We have read through the first third of the book of Job.  Job has suffered some terrible things and his friends have come to “encourage” him, but they are not doing a good job.  This week we’ll continue reading in Job and learning about suffering.   On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.  Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups. Sunday, September 9 – Mark 6:14-29…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of September 2

Last week started our journey of reading through the Old Testament in chronological order.  So while we started in Genesis, we aren’t just reading it straight through.  We will be reading about Job in the coming days and then return to Genesis.  As we continue reading in the OT we will look at the Scriptures in the order in which events occurred.  Hopefully, as you read God’s Word it will come alive to you and you will see God in…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 26

This week we will start a reading plan that will take us chronologically through the Bible.  We will read through the Scriptures in the order in which events occurred.  Hopefully, as you read God’s Word it will come alive to you and you will see God in a fresh way.  May God reveal Himself to you in a powerful way as you meditate on the Bible.  We will start in Genesis and work our way to Revelation.  May God do…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 19

This week brings us to the end of the New Testament.  At the end of the book of Revelation we see that Jesus will be victorious, and as believers in Him, we are victorious, too.  What was broken by sin will be restored and made new.  This is wonderful truth to know and eagerly expect.  As we live in the present we have great encouragement for what the future holds.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 12

We are making our way into the second half of the book of Revelation.  As a review, here’s a recap of chapters 1-11.  This week we’ll read through chapters 11-15.  Here’s an overview of these chapters and the remaining part of Revelation.  Remember that the focus is God’s greatness and our victory through Jesus.  Worship this week as you read, and ascribe to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit their worth.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of August 5

During August we will continue reading through the book of Revelation.  Don’t be overwhelmed by everything in the book.  If you need a refresher about what the book of Revelation is about click here .  Ask God to teach you some truths that will give you hope, and learn how to live in the light of Jesus, who gives victory.  Although the letters in chapters 2-3 are written to seven churches in Asia Minor they still have application for Rocky Creek…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of July 29

Over the next four weeks we will be reading and studying the book of Revelation.  It can be frightening, and it can be confusing.  However, it is a book that God gives us to offer us hope, not fear.  “Jesus is victorious and those who have pledged allegiance to Him will be victorious as well.  That victory is what Revelation is about.”  As you read this book, discover God’s greatness and how we should follow Jesus faithfully.  By clicking here…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of July 22

Peter was in Jesus’ inner circle and shared many intimate moments with Him.  Over the course of several years Peter was transformed from a rugged fisherman to someone who would die for his faith in Jesus.  Jesus knew what He was getting when He chose Peter, and He knew what He could become.  The same is true for us.  Jesus knows us and wants to transform us as we read and obey the Bible.  As you read 1 and 2…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of July 15

This week we’ll read three different books from the New Testament.  Jude instructs us in how to confront false teachers and how we should contend for the faith.  And although Timothy and Titus are addressed to pastors, they provide valuable information for all believers today.  We can gain insight into how the church should be structured and how if should function.  Seek to grow in your faith this week and understand more of who God is and His purpose for…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of July 8

This week we’ll read in 1 and 2 Thessalonians.  Paul had ministered in Thessalonica, but was forced to quickly depart because of the Jews.  These letters are written out of concern for the church and to help new believers be encouraged in their faith.  As they faced persecution and false teachings, Paul encourages them to increase in faith and love and be grounded in the truth of God’s Word.  Paul is able to address some concerns that the believers have…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of July 1

This week we’ll read several short New Testament books.  Although small in size, they have some very practical truths that we can learn and apply.  As you read through these books discover God’s character and see how he wants you to respond to the truths presented.  God’s Word should continually transform us.  Renew your mind this week and allow that to transform your thoughts, words, and actions.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of June 24

This week we will read through Philemon, which we will study July 8, and Colossians, which we will look at July 1.  “Paul wrote the letter to the church at Colossae when he learned through Epaphras that heretical teachings were running through the church.  Paul’s letter pointed the church to the person and work of Jesus Christ.  The cross of Christ is not merely a theory for theologians to ponder; it’s a real-life, real-time reality that heals, restores, and reconciles.…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of June 17

This week we will read through two New Testament books – Jude and Philippians.  Jude, the half-brother of Jesus, “calls the church to fight, in the midst of intense spiritual warfare, for the truth.”  He confronts apostasy, the defection from true, biblical faith.  The church must stand in truth today, as well.  In Philippians, we’ll discover that we can have joy regardless of our circumstances.  Paul writes from prison to encourage the church at Philippi to continue walking with God…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of June 10

This week we will continue our journey through Second Corinthians.  On his missionary journeys Paul had served in Corinth and shared the gospel in this prominent city of Greece.  He is now writing to this body of believers to “urge them to prepare for his impending visit by completing the collection they had started a year previously and by dealing with the troublemakers [false teachers who infiltrated the church] in their midst.  He warns them that he means what he…
