This Sunday, we are kicking off a new preaching series called Whenever and Wherever. This series will walk us through chapters 16-18 of Acts. As you join us on Sundays for the preaching of the Word, we want you to prepare by being in your Bible during the week. Below you will find some useful tools to help you as you read God's Word. Download the attached Reading Plan so you can follow along during this series.
The Bible should be a prevalent part of any disciple of Jesus. As much as the sun that graces our skies, so should the Bible be a consistent place visited by Christians. The Bible is God’s Word to us and another provision of His grace (Jer. 15:16). The Bible is God’s voice for us to hear and understand who He is and all that He has done.
Throughout 2016, our focus at The District Church will be the same: to be disciples that make disciples. Reading the scriptures is an activity of a disciple and a disciple-maker. We want to serve you by equipping you with the right tools as you read the Bible. Charles Spurgeon said beautifully, about the fruit bore in the life of a disciple who reads the Bible, “A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”
As with any job, having the right tools brings better results. No mechanic works on a car with a jackhammer. Thus, the right tools bring different results, which is especially true when reading the Bible. Asking good questions will bring studying the Bible to life. Most of the reasons people state for not reading the Bible can be traced to not really knowing how or never being taught. There are several questions you should ask every time you read the Bible.
