Summer Study: “Experiencing God”

0 Comment

For this Summer, we’ll be exploring the topic, “Experiencing God” during our Sunday School hour at 10:00am. This is open to all including adults, college students, and HS. Here’s a description:

“Have you had an experience of God?” It’s a question that provokes mixed reactions. The word “experience” may set alarm bells ringing for some Christians, as they imagine the word means supernatural encounters, strange visions, voices or other revelations. But the Bible, God’s final, complete revelation, reveals a different, yet no less marvelous experience of God. The wonderful truths of the Gospel, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit give Christians a unique experience of God, seen and felt in many ways. A love for Christ and for others. Peace in place of anxiety and joy in all circumstances. And a passion for doing good, and a deep sense of fulfillment and freedom. These studies stem from the conviction that a deeper understanding of God’s gospel leads us to a genuine, life-transforming experience of the living God in Christ, which leaves us hungry to know Him more, and serve Him more faithfully. Work through them yourself, with a friend, your partner or in a Bible-study group to discover the riches that are yours in Christ.

Here’s the breakdown:

1. Experiencing God, experiencing Christ – Colossians 1 v 24 – 2 v 10

2. Experiencing God, experiencing love – Luke 7 v 36-50

3. Experiencing God, experiencing peace – Mark 4 v 35 – 5 v 43

4. Experiencing God, experiencing joy – Philippians 1 v 12-30 and 4 v 4-13

5. Experiencing God, experiencing passion – Titus 2 v 11 – 3 v 8

6. Experiencing God, experiencing rest – Acts 16 v 11-34

Thanks for reading. Have a good weekend! See you Sunday (or earlier)!
