Living Out God’s Life-Building Word

Day 1: Read 2 Timothy 3:16. God’s Word draws out the truth of who God is and what He has done to save us in Jesus, and what it means to live as a child of God. In God’s Word, the path to heaven is revealed, but so is the way to build a life that matters with God and with one another. How has God’s Word inspired you this past week in worshiping Him and following His ways?

Day 2: Read Matthew 7:24. Why did God include this in the Bible? What Biblical principle is found here? How does this fit in with the whole story of the Bible? What application does this truth have for my life?

Day 3: Read 2 Timothy 3:14-15. The Bible is an unfolding story of who God is and what it means to know Him. The story of God’s great love is that He created the world, died for our sins, rose again, and longs to be in a living and loving relationship with us. If someone asked you to give the 30 second summary of the Bible’s story, what would you say? Why?

Day 4: Read Psalm 78:4-6. Who introduced you to the Bible? Take time to give God thanks (and if still alive to give that person a word of thanks!). Who are you introducing to read, learn, and live God’s Word? Who might you begin to introduce to God’s amazing story of His Word?

Day 5: Read 2 Timothy 3:16-17.  Typically, when people focus on these verses and the Bible, they quote verse 16, but not 17. How has God thoroughly equipped you through His Word in this new year? Where would you like to see God equip you, shape you for His purpose for your life through His Word?

Day 6: Read James 1:22-25. Turns out in everyday life, you only believe the part of the Bible you actually do. What parts of God’s Word do you find challenging to do? Why? How have you discovered His way is the best way to live in the past week?The

Wise Moves For The Year Ahead

Day 1: Read Matthew 2:1-2. The story of the wise men teaches us that God will reveal Himself to anyone who seeks Him. For whom are you praying this year to seek and find God? What might be a star that is beginning to shine in their life to guide them to Jesus?

Day 2: Read Jeremiah 29:13. Where do you find yourself seeking God’s direction today? What blocks your heart from being all in for seeking God?

Day 3: Read Matthew 2:12. God speaks to these wise men in the language of their work life – stars and dreams. Such speaking lines up with the message of His Word. How do you sense God speaking into your life today? What message from His Word is He seeking to connect to your heart and life?

Day 4: Read Psalm 119:105. Where do you need the light of God’s Word to shine on your path today?

Day 5: Read Matthew 2:9-10. You might say, “Well, Pastor, I haven't seen too many bright stars pointing the way in my life.” Yet, think about it. What these wise men did for a living was basically two-fold: interpret the stars and interpret dreams. In other words, God used the circumstances of their everyday job and life to guide them to His Son. He does the same today; maybe not with stars and dreams, but with the stuff of which our everyday lives are made. God is seeking to guide us at our work and in our homes. How have you sensed His guidance for your life’s path this week? Where are you seeking His guidance in the day ahead?

Day 6: Read John 14:6. There are times in our lives when we find ourselves in situations which offer no clear-cut answers. It is at these times when we can entrust ourselves completely to God, knowing that he will lead us each step of the way. Where is Jesus calling you to step out in faith in the year ahead?
