The Word – How Reading The Bible Leads To Revival"

Worship Notes:

When you hear the word “Revival”, what do you think of? What does it look like in your life?

John 1:1-14
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

The Book of John is all about the divinity of Jesus. How do these verses describe the divinity of Jesus?

Hebrews 4:12
11 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Isaiah 55:11
17so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

2 Timothy 3:16
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

  • What do these verses say about the Bible?
  • How can we be sure the Bible is relevant and reliable?

Psalms 119:105
105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.

Proverbs 30:5
5 “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

The Word leads us. What do these verses say about how the Bible can lead us? How have you seen this in your life?

2 Timothy 3:17
17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Matthew 4:4
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

The Word liberates us. How does the Bible equip and empower us?

Next Steps:

What’s your Next Step in your faith journey?
When we encounter the Word of God, we have two choices. 1) Accept it or 2) Reject it.

Take some time this week and work through these questions.

1. Have you accepted the reliability and relevance of the Bible? If not, what’s holding you back.
2. Spend some time in prayer asking God to lead you in His Word.
3. Ask God to equip and empower you to do His Will in your life.

for the week of 9-13-2020

Wednesday, 6pm,
Not Your Mama’s Bible Study presents:
The Book of Ruth Bianca Juárez Olthoff

God can seem distant when dreams fade, people die, or careers fail. It may feel like He slammed the door in your face and walked out for good. No one knows the feeling of abandonment more than Ruth and Naomi. Their story begins with the worst—death, famine, and poverty. And God remains silent.

But the book of Ruth doesn’t end with despair. The story brims with hope because God works on behalf of the two widows in ways they least expect. In this 7-part series, Bianca Juárez Olthoff, speaker and author of Play with Fire, teaches through Ruth to show how God moves behind the scenes in our lives.

Walk the journey of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz and discover the devoted love of God and His transformative power in our lives.

Beverages and a light snack will be served.

Text to Tithe: Due to a number of requests for a more "modern" way to tithe, Text to Tithe has been created. It’s safe, fast, and secure. Just text the word, "give" to (786) 288-0839 and follow the link. Thanks!
