Jesus wants that relationship with everyone. He wants to restore that intimate relationship that Adam and Eve experienced in the garden and with everyone, no matter what your walk in life is, no matter the color of your skin, no matter what your ethnicity, no matter what your politics, no matter what your religion. Before we are saved, Christ stands at the door of each our hearts and knocks. He will not force Himself on us, but He will come in to our hearts if asked. And through that receiving of Christ, we can know that we are saved, born again if you will, and that our names are then written in the book of life.
Thanks for joining Chuck and me on our quest to know Christ better, to trust Christ more and to walk closer in His footsteps by studying the Bible. Have a great Summer! Spend time in the Word. Some ideas to help you get started:
- How about homiletics on a New Testament book (use the major sections in each chapter as your guide)
- How about a word or phrase study (look up grace, or prayer, etc.)
- Do a study of the names of God (Jehovah-Jireh as our provider; Jehovah-Shalom as our peace, etc.)
- Read Proverbs daily (Proverbs 1 on the 1st of the month, Proverbs 2 on the 2nd of the month, etc.)
- Read through an Old Testament book with a trusted commentary.
See you in the Fall!
