God created a purpose for all of His children and has laid out the instructions for how to fulfill that purpose. This instruction manual is known as the Bible. Reading the Bible is essential for all Christians. You must become familiar with God’s word by reading it from start to finish. By doing so, you’ll learn and retain certain elements of scripture that will become clearer as you study and hear related lessons in Church.
Of course, you must study it in order to know Him more intimately. Simply reading the Bible will not fill you with the wisdom and knowledge God has for you. Studying the Bible is essential to knowing God and understanding His will for our lives. Reading God’s word isn’t a race, it’s a lifelong journey. It’s something that we must be doing as a regular part of our daily lives.
His word also tells us, and Jesus showed us, how to act in certain situations. We need to mirror the actions of Jesus and it is impossible for our spirits and beliefs to grow in a solid foundation without this knowledge.
We must learn how to read and ask God to have the wisdom to understand what is being taught. This wisdom can only be found through the reading of scripture.
The question that is most popular from new believers, or those just returning to Christ, is where to begin and how to fully understand what is being said. It’s difficult to randomly select a verse and understand what is happening. The verse can be taken out of context without the knowledge of what happened before and after that verse. Sometimes you need to read a whole chapter in order to understand what is happening.
Our goal is to provide scriptures and brief explanations to help with everyday life. Both Christians and non-Christians alike face trials for which scripture has an answer. We want to provide those answers and help you conquer those trials and problems through the word of God.
Bible Lessons for Kids
Matthew 18:4 states, “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Children are trusting, forgiving, loving, and have a level of humility that adults should replicate. We need to make sure our children remember these values and characteristics for as long as they live. This link contains scriptures that will help you teach your children about God and how to effectively read His word. The lessons are not only applicable to daily life, but can help children overcome their own trials, whether they occur now or down the road in life. We want to teach children to accept what God has for them and not to worry so much about popular opinion. Our reward is in Heaven, not on Earth.
Bible Lessons for Women
Proverbs 14:1 states, “Every wise woman buildeth her house; but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.” As women, it is our duty to not only take care of the people in our house, but also raise them up and help them become who God created them to be. We have the ability to raise someone to greatness or completely destroy them. How exactly should a woman of God act? Well, this link provides scriptures to help you understand exactly how God wants you to carry yourself, be aware of the words you speak, and modesty.
Modesty is a controversial topic right now, especially with some people claiming that it’s their choice if they want to show off their body. It is not your body, it belongs to God. Your choice of clothing should glorify Him and automatically make a statement that you are His. We have scriptural backing listed for you to study, so that you may teach it to the young girls following in your footsteps. Build them up so they may know their inner beauty is more important than their outer beauty. We also discuss interaction with husbands, based on scripture. So if you are married or planning to get married, you definitely need to read the lesson and be a wife of God.
Romans 5:21 states, “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” As you read through the Bible and come across various important details, remember the most important detail is that we are saved through grace. Even though sin entered this world through Eve taking a bite of the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge,
God still realized that people could be good. We needed saving and He knew that only grace and love could defeat darkness. The sacrifice of Jesus secured our positions in heaven if we believe He is the Son of God and obey His word. There is no other way to get to heaven. You will read how that wasn’t the case in the Old Testament, but that’s the beauty of the New Testament. It shows how every person, whether they were in the time of Christ or still to come, are all saved as long as they hear the Word, believe, repent, confess their sins, are baptized (fully immersed) in water and remain faithful unto death. This link will take you through the different stages of the Bible in order to help you break down the different themes and concepts of the Bible.
