I want to let you know about an exciting Bible study that I am going to be involved with, that is one of the best ways to understand and live the story from the Word of God. While this study comes to you through my blog, I am going to be just as much the "student" as everyone else who has committed to the study. It comes primarily from a chronological arrangement of scriptures, and will be lasting 31 weeks, starting the first week in September.
The Story comes to us from Max Lucado and Randy Frazee of Oak Hills Church. Their work on this arrangement of scripture has been ongoing for several years, and has been studied by numerous churches. This time, it comes with a study guide which is directed toward individual and group studies.
We may be referring to "The Story" in some of our daily blogs, but it's going to primarily be a study for us to not only learn, but come to live The Story of our lives and especially how it fits into The Story from God's word. Have you ever considered the Bible is really a love story of God toward his people? That's the basis of the beginning of this study.
If you desire more information on this 31 week Bible study, you may go to the website of Oak Hills Church, www.oakhillschurch.com. Click on The Story tab and you will be given directions to order the book and the study guide at an 82% savings. There are also books available there for The Story, for youth groups, children's ministry, as well as the basic The Story books.
Also, you will be able to follow along with the weekly sermon from each chapter of The Story. They can be live-streamed from any of the service times of the church, or watched any time from the video downloads.
I'm excited and wanted to share with you what a great opportunity this will be to start at the beginning with Creation and in 31 weeks ending with Revelation. It's going to be fun and life changing. God Bless!
