“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” – Proverbs 27:17
According to a 2017 State of the Bible in America Survey conducted by Barna Research, 72% of those who read their Bible once a week or more, experienced frustration caused by an inability to fully comprehend their reading.
Starting TONIGHT, March 8, we begin a seven-part series, Iron Sharpens Iron, aimed at improving our Bible study skills. The initial study will be devoted to acquiring new strategies for studying God’s Word. Over the next six studies, we will apply those skills in small group settings to the study of the book of Galatians. Whether a novice or a seasoned veteran in the study of the Bible, you will get an opportunity to acquire new skills and sharpen old ones as we learn together. The goal of our study, in addition to gleaning new truths from the book of Galatians, is to fulfill the command of Paul to his young apprentice in 2 Timothy 2:15: “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”
We will meet every other Thursday, from 7:00 p.m. to 9 p.m., in Heritage Hall, with a time of fellowship, worship, exposition and small group discussion, followed by delicious chocolate chip cookies.
