This past Wednesday night we began a new series called “Alive.” This series focuses on the fact that God’s Word is ALIVE and effects change on lives when it is read. I challenged your students to look at the Bible beyond what many young people stereotype it to be.
For example, many of them related to these examples of what God’s Word is like to some people:
1 - A book your grandmother reads (it’s a book for “old” people)
2 - A foreign language book (difficult to understand)
3 - A history book (about dead people and past events)
4 - A magic 8 ball (you ask it questions and “hope” for the answer you want)
I asked your students to consider jumping into God’s Word by reading a verse a day. For some, a chapter a day might be more appropriate. It’s actually a great time for you to partner with your student to do this as our current Bible reading plan at church only tackles a chapter each day. You could read and discuss the Scripture with your students along with the rest of our church. PLUS - the reading is the text for our Sunday morning message and reflection series. It really is TOO GOOD for you to pass up! :)
