Final Spring 2015 Bible Reading Challege

We’re going to end the semester as we begun – with a Bible reading challenge! This one is an easy one – seven chapters in seven days. We’ll begin on Monday April 20 and end on Sunday April 26.

We’ll read the three epistles of John. First John has five chapters and Second and Third John have one each. We hope you’ll join us!

Songs for BBQ!

Song #1 (Galatians 2:20; Galatians 5:16, 25)
I am crucified with Christ
And it is no longer I who liveth,
But it is Christ who lives in me;
And the life which I now live
In the flesh, I live in faith—
The faith in the Son of God
Who loved and gave Himself up for me.

And now I’m walking by the Spirit
Step by step, day by day,
O Lord, I love You.
You’re the precious One to me.
As I do this and that
Lord, remind me where You’re at;
You’re in my spirit,
Dispensing grace to me.

And now I’m walking by the Spirit,
Marching on toward the goal.
O Lord, Your purpose
Means everything to me.
All self-love I lay aside
For the churches, for Your Bride,
For the fulfillment
Of Your economy.

Song #2 (Hebrews 4:16)
In the holiest place
Touch the throne of grace
Grace as a river shall flow
In the holiest place
Touch the throne of grace
Grace as a river shall flow

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Grace as a river shall flow;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Grace as a river shall flow.

In the holiest place
Live before His face
Light of glory through me will shine
In the holiest place
Live before His face
Light of glory through me will shine

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Light of glory through me will shine;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Light of glory through me will shine.

To the spirit turn, and the incense burn,
Touch the living fountain of life;
To the spirit turn, and the incense burn,
Touch the living fountain of life;

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Touch the living fountain of life;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Touch the living fountain of life.

Song #3 (Philippians 3:12-14)
Pursue Him and know Him;
Be found in Him.
Count all things loss for Him.
Just gain Him, obtain Him; lay hold of Him.
It’s Christ the central vision.

Forgetting the things which are behind,
Press on, pursue with this mind.
By any means each hour now redeem;
Stretch forth, lay hold of Him.

Pursue Him and seize Him,
Christ the supreme.
Just love this precious Person.
Forgetting and leaving all other things,
Love Him with your whole being.

Christ now is my center and reality,
My life for eternity.
All things are just dung compared to Him,
So love and just gain Him!

Song #4 (John 6:51)
I am the living bread,
Which came down out of heaven;
If anyone, if anyone eats of this bread
He shall live forever;

And the bread (and the bread)
Which I will (which I)
Will give is my flesh,
Given for (given for)
For the life (for the)
Life of the world.

I am the living bread,
Which came down out of heaven;
If anyone, if anyone eats of this bread
He shall live forever.

Song #5 (1 Peter 2:3; Romans 10:13)
Just taste and see that the Lord is good;
Just taste and see that the Lord is good.
He’s good for You, as He is for me;
So whatever you do, just taste and see.

Just call O Lord—He’ll change your life;
Just call O Lord He’ll change your life.
Amazing grace He will afford;
If in every place You call O Lord.

You’ll feel real love coming into your heart;
You’ll feel real love coming into your heart.
You’ll sense a flow from God above;
And You will know you’ve found real love.

So praise the Lord for His life in you;
Yes, praise the Lord for His life in you.
Something of Christ He has outpoured
Into your life; so praise the Lord!

Song #6 (John 4:14; John 7:37-39)
I’ve got a river of life flowing within me;
It makes the lame to walk
And the blind to see.
It opens prison doors,
sets the captives free.
I’ve got a river of life flowing within me.

Spring up, O well, within my spirit!
Rise up and tell, so all can hear it!
Spring up, O well, so I experience
That life abundantly.

I’ve got a river of life flowing within me;
It started gushing up
When God set me free.
That I keep the flow is my only plea.
I’ve got a river of life
Springing within me.

Once I call His name there’s a flow within;
It turns me from my day,
Makes Him Lord again.
As my spirit burns, Satan cannot win.
Calling, “Oh Lord Jesus,”
Keeps the flow within.

Song #7 (Luke 15:20-24)
I’m so happy here, with my Father dear,
Once lost, now I’m near again!
(It was) First His smiling face,
Then His warm embrace,
I’m surprised by grace again!

I was lost, now I’m found again!
I was dead, but now I live!
Come rejoice with us, and be merry then
Back in my Father’s house again!

Robe, ring, sandals on
And my hunger’s gone!
Back where I belong, again!
(Because He) Clothed me thoroughly,
(And then He) Reinstated me!
(Now I’m) Back in the family again!

Song #8 (1 Timothy 6:11-12)
But you, O man of God,
Flee these things
And pursue righteousness,
Godliness, faith, love,
Endurance, meekness,
Fight the good fight of the faith.
Lay hold on eternal life
To which you were called


New Bible Reading Challenge – Exodus!

Our Bible Reading Challenge for the month of March (and half of April) will be the Old Testament book of Exodus. In Exodus Moses leads God’s people out of Egypt into the wilderness where eventually they build a tabernacle as God’s dwelling place. During this book they pass through many experiences – all which are significant to us as New Testament believers (1 Cor. 10:1-6).

We invite you to join us in our reading challenge. We will read a chapter a day for the first 30 days of March (the chapter to read will correspond to the day of the month) and then the last 10 chapters of Exodus on April 1-10. We look to the Lord to bless our reading of His word!

To help with the reading challenge we are putting together some texting groups to text what you liked from that day’s reading. This is an excellent way to encourage one another and also provides a reminder to read! But if you get behind – no problem! Just carry on with the scheduled reading and catch up when/if you get the time!

May the Lord bless each one of us with Himself this semester.

Final Bible Reading Challenges of 2014!

We will have two final Bible reading challenges this semester. The previous ones (John, Acts, and Daniel) were very enjoyable and profitable! So we will finish the year with two more.

The details are as follows:

Challenge One – Esther:
The Old Testament book of Esther – one chapter a day, for ten days, starting December 1. This challenge will end about the time final exams finish (December 10).

Challenge Two – Revelation:
The New Testament book of Revelation – five chapters a week, for four and a half weeks, starting December 15. This challenge will end on January 13, a week before classes begin in the Spring (January 20).

Get some friends together and spend the Winter break getting into the Word!
