Welcome back! Since we are going to be starting a fun Bible study soon, I thought we should start with the basics! As in – what in the world is Bible study and WHY would I want to do it?! Well, here’s a little snippet from my book, Daily Smooches: Devotions from The K.I.S.S. to get us going!
““Before the world began, the Word was there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1, ERV.
Welcome to the best adventure you’ve ever had! Bible study!
“What?” you ask. “BIBLE STUDY?!”
Yes, sister friend. BIBLE STUDY!
Let me tell you something right off the bat. God did not orchestrate the creation of the Holy Bible so it could sit on a shelf in the guest room closet collecting dust (ahem…). His word speaks Truth – with a capital T – into our very souls in order to move the knowledge and love He claims for us from our brains down into our hearts, where it moves us and compels us to be better people!
But how do we get there? By studying what He says and learning how to apply those words directly into the business of living life here on earth! So, with that in mind, let me ask you something personal. Does this resonate with you:
“So maybe, like me, you yearn for a new and different way of incorporating God into your life. A way that makes Him come alive to YOU. A way that makes HIS story relevant to YOURS. A way that brings His Truth into every detail of your everyday world. A way that energizes your day and calms your night. A way to live your life with solid, loving answers to hard questions and a way to celebrate your victories in gratitude. A way to grow in love and faith not only with the One who put us here, but also with that same One who saves us, and the exact same One who lives in us, if we simply ask Him to.” Wendie Connors, The KISS, page 6.
If your heart just skipped a beat, then God is talkin’ to you, sister friend! And THIS is the place for you!”
