Lent – Week 3: March 27- April 2


Meet the Author

The Bible is a unique gift from God that brings about true life change.  It recounts God’s salvation story throughout history told through the lives of ordinary people (not much different than you and I).  It is not an instruction manual as much as  a personal letter from God to people needing to know Him more.

The Bible describes itself as authoritative, inspired by God and powerful.  It also compares itself to a mirror, sword, light and honey just to name a few.  Reading the Bible is not about more religious information but rather getting to know Jesus (the Living Word) and being changed by Him.  If you want to know Jesus better, get to know your Bible better!

Scripture:

‘You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life.  These are the Scriptures that testify about me.’  –  John 5:39, Psalm 119:11, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:15-17, John 20:30-31

Prayer:

Dear Jesus, give me a desire for your Word so that I might know you more.  Help me to stop holding on so tightly to the controls of my life. Amen
