The Fall Bible Study Session comes to a close today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed Children of the Day by Beth Moore and that you’ve gained more knowledge of God and His word as well as growth in your love and personal devotion to Him. Thank you for your participation and diligence to show up each week, to do the lessons, and to live it out. I will archive these posts under Children of the Day located in the Bible Studies Archive tab for you to view any time.
Our focus on Day 1 was prayer. We read verses that highlighted Paul’s requests and considered the differences between a receiving approach over an achieving approach to requests in prayer. As a receiver in prayer, we say yes to His best.
On Day 2, we were reminded that others can not receive the message of Jesus Christ if we don’t share His message.
“Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1
Paul, in his last letter to Timothy, reminded him about this important duty as he urged him to continue to spread the gospel.
“Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. [highlight mine] Therefore, I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.” 2 Timothy 2:8-10
Our lesson on Day 3, we considered destructive attitudes among believers and our community responsibility. Two of the attitudes that we focused on were arrogance and idleness.
On Day 4, we were encouraged by remembering that the Lord our God fights for us through good and bad seasons. He is the Lord of peace.
“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16
Our last lesson of the study, Day 5, concluded with a message on the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:18
As we draw this study to its conclusion, I pray that benediction over you as well that His grace is with you. I also praise and give Him thanks for your gracious offering of yourselves in study to Him. Coming up in January, I will be offering the next bible study session. Details will follow at a later date. I hope you will consider joining in for that study too.
May God bless you abundantly,
