All-In Discipleship Study 2

  • Studying the Bible is how we can grow — Through this godly habit, we grow spiritually and are more aligned with Christ and His purpose for our lives. The apostle Paul wrote, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” –Romans 12:2
    Studying the Word is what will help renew our minds and know His truth.
  • The Bible gives us strength — Jesus warns us that we will have troubles in this world (John 16:33“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”). Nothing equips us better than His Word. It is the promises of God that strengthen us when trouble comes. It’s the hope of something better one day that helps us stand firm. Knowing and believing in the character of God is what calms the internal storm. It shifts our gaze from the storm to the One who saved and sustains the entire world. Therefore, fear and stress fade and hope peace and joy grow.
