From the Pastor’s Heart
Several of you participated over the last ten weeks in the Wednesday night review of Max Lucado’s book Anxious for Nothing. Our study of Bible passages relating to the peace of God reminded us of how we can find calm in a chaotic world.
Beginning May 10th, we’ll be studying the book of Proverbs, “Gems for Daily Living.” These lessons will use pictures to symbolize principles we should apply. We’ll study the book thematically—focusing on relationships , moods, timing, speech, feelings, and follow-through.
Unfortunately, many Christians fail to mature spiritually because they give up serious Bible study in early adulthood. In fact, studies have shown that most adult Christians have a thirteen-year-old understanding of Scripture. Falling for the line “Sunday School is for kids”, they do not meditate daily on the Word of God and conscientiously seek to apply it in everyday relationships.
Our study of Proverbs will be adult Christian education. I hope you’ll join us for dinner, prayer time, and a serious review of the themes of Proverbs. We all have a lot to learn . . . and live. I hope to see you in the Fellowship Hall Wednesday evenings.
