"God as He Longs for Us to See Him" by Chip Ingram
Our current Bible Study uses the DVD teaching tool developed by our friend and former pastor Chip Ingram of "Living on the Edge" (www.lote.org). It addresses the A.W. Tozer quote "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." Chip has taken that train of thought and developed a ten week course covering the attributes of God: Goodness, Holiness, Love, Justice, Faithfulness, Wisdom, Sovereignty, Faithfulness and more.
Our goal is to uncover poor thinking about God that is often based upon our experiences, incorrect teaching, and negative messages from our culture. God speaks directly through His word and it is through that medium that we can hear the truth and compare it our false doctrine and attitudes. Each week we review scripture, answer a few pre-meeting questions, view Chip's DVD together and discuss our application of the what we are discovering. Let us know if you would like to join our study! We began with a causal dinner at 5 PM and are finished by 7 PM.
If you would like to join our Bible study, we offer a video remote access through FaceTime, Skype, or Google+ "hangouts" beginning at 5:30 PM (EST). Please email us for instructions on how to join us remotely.
For those who can attend Bible study in person, we will see you Sunday at 5:00 PM for dinner!
Gospel of John Bible Study Overview - completed fall 2014:
What was the purpose of John's Gospel account? You can discover John's Holy Spirit directed goal by first reading John 20:30.
Essentially John stated that he wished to bring readers to faith/belief that Jesus was the Christ and the Son of God. But what is faith and belief? It is more than an intellectual acceptance of the historic life of Jesus. Instead our faith and belief in Christ is to be transformational. We are to be transformed by the presence of Jesus our Savior and Creator in our lives and reject being controlled by the things the world values and the yearning of our appetites and shallow desires.
In the minds of many Jews and Gentiles, a carpenter from Nazareth seemed like an unlikely candidate for the role of Messiah. Then again many of our friends, family and neighbors share that same mindset today!
