There are a handful of chapter in the Bible that stand out in their importance. This summer we’ll consider a few of these Very Important Chapters in VIC.
HERE is the link for Zoom.
The first lesson in our summer series on the Very Important Chapters of the Bible brings us to Genesis 2. There are a few things that happen in this chapter, but the part that we will focus on is marriage. Marriage, and the family, is the basic unit of society. This is not only the first marriage. It is God’s blueprint and commentary on his gift to humanity.
“The Lord is our Shepherd, I shall not want.” What exactly does that phrase mean? Our confirmands responded that it meant that we don’t always want the Lord. That’s a true statement, but it’s not what our God is trying to communicate in the Good Shepherd Psalm.
The Great Flood recorded in Genesis completely changed the world. Check out this Sunday’s Bible study, the first in a two-part series, as we look at the state of the world, the size of the ark, and the last family living after God destroyed the world with water.
“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities…” But God, I didn’t vote for him! In Sunday’s Bible study we looked at what our God has to say about our rulers. In the 13th chapter of Paul’s letter to the Roman Christians we find some eye opening direction for how we relate to the governing authorities.
Would you get off the boat if you knew everything you had ever known was destroyed? I might think twice. In the aftermath of the flood, after more than a year, Noah was told to exit the ark. What would life be like?
To the Lord a thousand years are like a day and a day is like a thousand years. Our God is eternal and timeless. Looking at 2 Peter 3 we see that one day God will end time itself when he ends the world. Despite what the scoffers might say, God is not slow. He is patient wanting everyone to come to repentance.
