We are hoping that your summer provided time to soak in God’s Word. As summer is starting to wrap up, you may be starting to think about your fall schedule. Your church may already have started advertising their fall study options and all you have to do is sign up! We hope you will take advantage of what they offer as we believe discipleship should happen primarily in the context of the local church. However if you do not have options at your local church, here are a few suggestions for you to study God’s Word.
Bible studies are designed to help you dig deeper into the Bible.
A topical study is written to help you learn more about a specific topic such as the image of God, church history, the story of Scripture, etc.
Book studies are simply that; reading a book to learn more about God. For example, None Like You by Jen Wilkin helps the reader understand 10 ways God is different from people and why that is a good thing.
Here are a few things to consider when planning your fall study:
Things to consider when choosing:
- What are a few books of the Bible that you have not studies before?
- Do you tend to spend more time in the Old Testament or New Testament? How can you balance that?
- Did you do a book study last semester? You may want to take this semester to study a book of the Bible?
