7 Summer Bible Studies You Should Know

Hey all!

If you are like me, you may be struggling with what to study this coming summer when BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) takes a break. It’s important to always be in the Word of God, but it can be challenging to do so.

Here are some suggested summer Bible studies you can try, or see if your local church is doing any to join.

  1. The Faithful by Priscilla Shirer, Kelly Minter, Beth Moore, and more
  2. The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
  3. Seamless by Angie Smith (check out the teen girl’s version, too)
  4. Read throught the book of Proverbs
  5. Pursuing Holiness: Applications from the Book of James by Philip Nation
  6. Detours: The Unpredictable Path to Your Destiny by Tony Evans
  7. 30-Day Challenges by Nancy Leigh Demoss

I will be using WordGo’s Bible studies and posting my answers, similar to what I did last year. These will begin sometime in June and run through the middle of August. The great thing about these summer Bible studies is that they are short, so they aren’t a big time commitment.

It doesn’t matter which summer Bible study you choose; all that matters is that you pick one.

Have a great summer everyone!

Summer Devotional July 4th, 2017

Happy 4th of July!!

Galatians 5:13:  “You, my brothers, were called to be free.  But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.”

On this day of celebration of Independence, let’s not forget who grants us independence:  God.  With our freedoms we are to do good, not harm.  We are to remember others and remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms.  Christ gives us the ultimate freedom in him.  On this side of heaven, God grants us individual freedoms to be used for His good.  Don’t take those (or Him) for granted.

Ecclesiastes 7:10:  “Do not say, ‘Why were the old days better than these?’  For it is not wise to ask such questions.”

Don’t live in the past!  Quit beating yourself up over something long over.  You can’t change it.  You can only move forward.  Each day is a new opportunity to live God’s fullest potential for your life.  Don’t waste one more minute of it!  It’s an insult to God to waste what He has given.  Carpe Diem!

Summer Devotional June 16th, 2017

1 Corinthians 9:24:  “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?  Run in such a way as to get the prize.”

A reminder as we head into the weekend of summer busy-ness to keep working for the Lord.  Keep fighting for His plan in your life.  Keep plugging away no matter how overwhelming life may seem.  Keep Him in focus and let the messiness of life and sin fall away.  Our prize is eternal.  Be in it to win it!
