Why the Nativity?

Our new Bible Study on Wednesday nights is all about the Christmas story, and why God chose to send His Son into the world the way He did. I hope you’ll join me in the Chapel in the D Building at 6:00 pm each Wednesday and let’s study together.

Something to Think About

Dwight L. Moody once said, “The Bible was not given for our information. It was given for our transformation.” Aren’t you thankful for the Word of God? Hebrews 4:12 says that it is alive and active. It can judge our hearts and what motivates us. It can bring about real, supernatural change in anyone who will read it and believe it. That’s what makes the Bible completely different from any other book. The challenge we face as believers Christ is to mature in our walk with Him. That’s where studying the Bible comes in. God’s Word is able to transform us from who we are, into who God wants us to be. Catch up on your reading, and let the Bible transform you!

Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you Sunday!
