Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
Inductive Bible Study Workshop This Week
Have you wanted to attend a Precept Bible study here at Bethlehem but wonder if it is “too hard?” Do you feel lost when you open your Bible, not even knowing where to begin? Or do you read a few chapters in your Bible and find that only moments later you can't even remember what you just read? Or come across a difficult passage and question whether it's even possible to understand God's Word without getting a seminary degree?
This Thursday, July 26, you will have the opportunity to attend a free workshop for women that will introduce you to Inductive Bible Study. Mary Delk, Minister for Women, will show us an approach that has the potential to transform our lives as we learn to study God’s Word for ourselves, any time, any place. Please bring your Bible, some colored pencils, a notebook to write on… and a teachable spirit.
R. C. Sproul said,
"We fail in our duty to study God’s Word not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy."
Please come to the Downtown campus, July 26 to the workshop on Inductive Bible study, 9:45am-Noon or 6:45-9:00pm.
If you can't come on July 26, look over the options for Bible studies in the Fall. Don't be afraid of the Precept classes. They aren't difficult. Just work, delightful work.
