A God-Breathed Word for Faith
Posted on Dec 28, 2017 in Faith Updates
As we head into 2018 with our continued call to make disciples of Jesus who make disciples of Jesus, I have a challenge:
52 verses in 52 weeks!
God’s word is a supernatural word! The Bible says,
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16).
In short, we cannot grow disciples without getting God’s word in our head and heart. His word is a lamp to our feet and a light for our path as a church (Psalm 119:105). My vision is the verse of the week will be published weekly in our online Faith Update and Sunday morning worship folder.
Never memorized scripture before? The Navigators is a ministry that has been helping people grow as disciples for decades. Their system has proven very effective. You can read about it here.
Want to get a jump start on week 1?
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:
The old has gone, the new is here!”
2 Corinthians 5:17
Happy New Year (almost)!
