We all have questions about what it means to live a Christian life. We all need help. Over the next six weeks, we are going to be introduced to several concepts that go into living “The Christian Life.” The follower of Christ is encouraged to “live a life worthy of the calling you have received” (Ephesians 4:1). We will discuss several topics like assurance, baptism, prayer, devotions, Bible study, God, church, spiritual disciplines, outreach, and discipleship. My prayer is that over the next six weeks, you will grow in your faith in God and love for Him and other people.
Today, we looked at some basics about the Bible: what is it called, what are some basic concepts, practical suggestions for reading, why study the Bible, and how important context is when studying the Bible. We are going to be going more in depth into the overall story of the Bible in our next sermon series.
Remember, these are overviews, the basics, and not intended to be an exhaustive answer to the question.
