I hope you were able to join us for the live kickoff webcast! It is available for viewing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w57K-fPYI1A. Among other things, I walked you through how to use Inseparable, the way each chapter flows, and explained the “fluid study elements” that are featured throughout the book. Reading, studying, and living out Scripture is something we all can do. Our lives will change as we allow the Holy Spirit to bring the Word to life within us.
Over the next several weeks I’m praying God shows up in each of our lives in noticeable ways. Those ways may or may not be what we’d consider miraculous, but truly, anytime God interacts with us it is a big deal, right? And God is always, always seeking to interact with us. So I’m praying that throughout the coming months we will make a habit of listening for His voice in everyday moments of life, and that we will notice Him when we see Him.
This week’s assignment is to read the entire book of Romans. Yes, you read that correctly! The whole book. If you’ve never read a whole chapter of the Bible yet alone an entire book, you might be feeling intimidated, and that’s ok. I am intimidated pretty much every time I commit to any sort of Bible reading endeavor. That’s why I provided a plan in Inseparable to get you through the whole book of Romans in 7 days. Check out Appendix 3 (page 202) in the book for 7 manageable sections of Scripture.
I’d also like to ask you if there’s anyone you’d like to invite to join you in this journey. Just one person. If there are more, that’s fine, but really ask God to show you if there is just one person with whom He’d like you to share this road. Maybe it’s your spouse or your best friend, or maybe it is your neighbor or your classmate. Maybe it’s somebody who would never set foot inside a church or Bible study. Pray about it, and talk with this person tomorrow if you can. See if he or she would be willing to join you as you pray, study, and discuss Scripture. If this person can’t afford a copy of Inseparable, please let me know and we will find a way to get one to him or her.
After you read Romans this week, check back here to see how others are responding to God’s Word.
Here’s this week’s discussion question:
What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
