Week 14: May 8-14

Beautiful Feet! Romans 10:15b “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news.” If you were to open your Bible to Romans 10 and just read this verse: First, you would miss a ton of awesome truths from God’s Word, and second, you might come away with some interesting interpretations about what the Bible says about feet (Romans 10 – a pedicure ministry?!). This verse is a point of emphasis Paul makes as he lays out some great truths about sharing the Gospel. This ...

Week 11: April 17-23

God Has Not Given Us Fear II Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Last week we looked at II Timothy 1:6, and we discussed “fanning the flame” in our spiritual lives. Verse 7 is a continuation of the same exhortation Paul is giving to Timothy, as he warns Timothy about living in fear. This is a helpful exhortation - but what is the connection to fanning the flame of our spiritual walk? Matthew Henry makes a link for us to the evil ...

Week 10: April 10-16

Fan the Flame  II Timothy 1:6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, As Paul opens this letter, he pours his heart out about how much he loves his “dear son” in the faith, Timothy. In verse 5 Paul makes reference to Timothy’s “sincere” faith that he received from the example of his godly mother and grandmother. Paul focuses Timothy on remembering what has been given to him - a godly ...

Week 9: April 3-9

Seize Opportunities to Serve God Ephesians 5:15-16 15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Paul has been building up steam in the book of Ephesians - laying down foundational truths about our new life in Christ throughout the first three chapters of the book. At the beginning of chapter 4, he urges us to “walk in a manner worthy” of these truths he has laid out. Chapters 4-6 contain some of the ...

Seeking Things Above Colossians 3:1-4 1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. This past week we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many ...

Walking with Jesus through the Holy (Passion) Week This coming week is designated as the “Passion” week. It is the week prior to the celebration of Easter, a time we focus on the events of Christ’s final week leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection. The importance of this week is to deepen our relationship with Christ by remembering the great sacrifice He made on our behalf.

Week 5: March 6-12

The Lord’s Prayer This year we are focusing on two of our greatest privileges as children of God: prayer and evangelism. We must learn how to be people of prayer! Many people struggle with prayer and need a starting point to begin. You are not the first person to wonder, “How should I pray?” The disciples asked Jesus the same question in Luke 11. In verse 1 a disciple asks Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray.” It is not a shameful thing to say, “I’m not ...
