Daily Bible Study Fall 2019
Genesis | Exodus | Proverbs | Hebrews | Joshua | Psalms |John Romans | Deuteronomy | Habakkuk | Acts
This fall, Daily Bible Study presents a series of readings supporting the theme "God." Readings come from Old and New Testament texts. These daily readings prepare us for the 13 lessons in Adult Bible Studies.
Daily readings in this unit help us discern what "Godness" is. They help us understand the Lord as the divine initiator of the cosmos and as the creator of humankind, and they remind us that God is not limited to what we can know of or imagine about God. They encourage us to appreciate the fact that mystery and wisdom are essential qualities of God's nature. Finally, they invite us to consider Christ's role with God in the world's creation.
In God's Image
Readings in this unit focus on the human condition. They remind us of the chasm sin imposes between us and our Creator. They guide us toward penitence that asks God to bridge the breach caused by sin. They recall for us how Jesus provides entry into the kingdom of God and challenge us to consider what the redeemed life looks like.
Readings in this unit challenge us to think about "objects of worship," with "objects" meaning not worship aids, such as candles and paraments, but those things we place ahead of God. They remind us of the place of God in our worship and the related instruction to love God with all that we are and to make that an essential part of our daily lives. They offer us the opportunity to think about why we may deliberately choose to worship that which is not God. They stress that nothing we worship other than God can impart life, and they invite us to understand that the worship impulse is only satisfied when it is directed toward God.
This ongoing day-by-day Bible study series is a great companion to Adult Bible Studies but can also be used as a standalone study for anyone wanting daily time with God. It is presented in quarterly segments. Bible-based, Christ-focused, and United Methodist-approved, this resource helps individuals develop the discipline of studying the Bible every day and coordinates with the lesson themes of Adult Bible Studies. Each lesson includes a one-page Bible study for each day of the quarter, along with introductory reflection questions and commentary on the daily Scripture passage, life application, and a concluding prayer. Now, in response to feedback, we are introducing new features and benefits to the resources including:
A comprehensive Bible study plan with more flexibility in terms of Scripture selection and topics.
Observation of the church seasons, including Advent and Lent.
