Sunday we’re starting our new series “Second Nature: Developing Spiritual Habits.” Shannon will be speaking about the importance of studying the Bible.
Unfortunately, far too many of us who call ourselves Christian don’t have a clue what the Bible says. That’s like calling yourself a pilot without ever studying the first thing about flying airplanes.
Personally, I’m guilty of viewing the Bible as an obligation, just another book I have to read. Sometimes I need to be reminded that it’s so much more than a book. It’s life. It’s power. It’s God’s word. And knowing God’s word is so very important.
It’s time we not only hear the word on Sunday mornings, but we read it for ourselves throughout the week and do what it says (James 1:22).
There’s scripture all throughout the songs that we sing. This week, in preparation for our time together Sunday, listen to these songs and I encourage you to read the coordinating scripture.
