2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world,
but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Romans 12:2 NLT-SE
Do you want to know God’s will and God’s ways for your life? I bet you do.
Do you desire to be grounded by wisdom and not be tossed by uncertainty? Surely.
Are we actively seeking this or waiting for God to drop it in our laps via a cloud formation or some other divine intervention? Dallas Willard in his book The Great Omission says, “Grace is opposed to earning, not to effort.” God’s great resource for our lives is the 66 books contained within the Bible. And if we are to seriously grow in our love for God and each other, this book must be at the center of our head, heart, and hands.
This summer we launch into a new learning module that includes a sermon series on orthodox doctrine beliefs entitled Christian, what do you believe?. We will explore catechesis questions used by the early church that were used to instruct new believers about the way and the will of God. We will also take up the practice of memorizing Scripture. Yes, we are unearthing an age old practice of rooting God’s Word deeply within our heads and hearts so that we can be prepared to respond biblically to life’s joys and trials. Join us on this journey deeper into God’s Word as we continue to become fully devoted disciples of Christ.
