About The Event

God speaks to us, most commonly through the Bible. He reveals who He is, who we are and how to live well.

The Bible is our source of truth and authority.

The Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

You are invited to explore the book of Genesis. We will look at what the book says and explore how the big ideas are reflected in history.

We will read the week before the sermon and then explore together Sundays!

Living in the Light of Something More   Genesis 46-50

Complete these statements after each reading:

1. What stands out to you in these chapters?

2. What do you believe God is saying to us?

o Genesis 46............................................................... April 3

o Genesis 47............................................................... April 4

o Genesis 48............................................................... April 5

o Genesis 49............................................................... April 6

o Genesis 50............................................................... April 7

What do you think God is saying to His people?

These habits will change our world.

1. Listen to God alone.  Set aside a specific time alone each day, five days a week, to read the Bible, the Word of God.

a. Begin praying, “Father, show me what you want me to see.”

b. Highlight what stands out to you as you read.

c. Questions are provided to help you explore.

2. Listen with a friend. Set aside at least ½ hour a day, five days a week to:

a. Share what stood out to you in the reading.

b. Think through what God is saying to the two of you.

c. Consider what God wants you to do.

d. Pray together.

The goal of these habits is to become so skilled at hearing and doing what God says that we can naturally help others so follow Christ.

This is the way Jesus lived.

“Truly I tell you, the Son is not able to do anything on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son likewise does these things.” John 5:19

Hearing God and doing what He says are foundational practices for God’s children.

The life God has designed us for and for us is beyond anything we have imagined.

“Will God ever ask you to do something you are not able to do? The answer is yes—all the time! It must be that way, for God’s glory and kingdom. If we function according to our ability alone, we get the glory; if we function according to the power of the Spirit within us, God gets the glory. He wants to reveal Himself to a watching world.”

Henry T. Blackaby, Experiencing God

The life God has for us will change your sphere of influence.

“If Christians around the world were to suddenly renounce their personal agendas, their life goals and their aspirations, and begin responding in radical obedience to everything God showed them, the world would be turned upside down. How do we know? Because that’s what first century Christians did, and the world is still talking about it.”

Henry T. Blackaby, Spiritual Leadership

“You are the light of the world!”  Matthew 5:14

These practices fill every day with marvelous opportunities to experience the relationship with your God that He prepared for you.
