Back to School
Here we go once again. School is back in session and we are going to be back in session for the “Digging Deeper” Bible Study. We will be starting back up Monday, September 9th at 6pm. “Digging Deeper” is a weekly Bible study held on Monday’s 6pm-8pm. We approach this study of the Bible as if one were in a college or seminary class.
We will be doing a quick overview of Genesis 1-11 in our first session in case you were not able to be a part of last semester’s study. The following week we will pick up with Genesis 12. We want to help those who want to know the Bible and are committed to go deeper.
Paul admonished Timothy to allow the wisdom that came from his knowledge of the Bible to give direction in his life. Paul says it this way in 2 Tim 3:14-17, “You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
There are so many “Christians” who are ignorant of what the Bible says and are unable to defend their faith. Many are as a result falling away. The same thing happened to Jesus. Many of Jesus’ followers quit following Him when He gave them deep and hard teaching. When people were leaving, Jesus turned to His disciples and asked if they were going to leave as well. John 6:68-69 says, “Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. 69 We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God."
I want to encourage all believers to know and live by the “words of eternal life” and know Christ our Savior through them. Grow in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus Christ.
