Jesus must rise from the dead in order for us to be justified before God. Jesus’s resurrection is God’s stamp of approval on Jesus’s sacrifice for us all. God accepts the sacrifice for us. We can now rise as well! If God had not accepted Jesus’ sacrifice, it would be eternal damnation for us all.
I know some of you were like me when you showed up to Bible Study Fellowship this year: we’re doing what?
Changes made to my group:
No opening worship time. We now go straight to our groups.
Flex Questions. We are picking 6 questions to focus on instead of doing the whole lesson. This is an effort to encourage those who don’t finish their lessons.
BSF is now only 1 1/2 hours instead of 2 hours long.
There are no hymns at all.
I would love to hear all of your initial impressions on these changes to the traditional BSF format. These are the most changes BSF has ever done at once and they are major. Please comment below with your thoughts.
Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Evangelizing is something I believe a majority of us struggle with. For my last devotional, I would like to challenge you to invite one person either to Bible Study Fellowship, a different Fall Bible Study you may be doing, or your church TODAY. It’s a simple question, not a lot of pressure. But it could make all the difference in someone’s life!
