Messiah Lutheran’s Adult Bible Study Program
1 Chronicles 22:19 states,“Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the LORD your God.”
What drives Messiah’s Bible Study program? It is first and foremost thankful obedience to the command of our God and Redeemer. The Lord desires that we seek him. And through thankful obedience to his call, we anticipate many blessings.
Above all, as redeemed children of God, we eagerly anticipate forever with the Lord. As a result, we have hope -- confident anticipation that death is not the end, but rather the beginning of a perfect and eternal tomorrow. Studying God’s Word builds and strengthens hope. Romans 15:4 states, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”
Armed then with this hope, we are energized for daily living by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18 states, “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” The Holy Spirit is the catalyst for this transformation of thought, heart, and will. He empowers us to walk in the servant footsteps of our Lord and brother, Jesus. And the vehicle for this transformation is meditation upon God’s Word.
Now, safeguarded by hope and equipped to serve as members of families, communities, and professions, we have peace and this peace comes from the God of the Bible. Psalms 119:165 states, “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.”
Our desire at Messiah Lutheran Church is for all to possess this hope, power, and peace.
Please join us as we seek to know the LORD our God!
