ABOUT TODAY'S MESSAGE: "God-versation: The Scriptures"

Ours is a God Who speaks; and ours is a heart that can hear. A distinguishing mark of relationships is communication. That’s what makes the Scriptures so remarkable.

Scripture Passage. Deuteronomy 4:5-8
QUESTIONS FOR STUDY:

1. At what point in Hebrew history did Moses speak today's passage?

2. What’s another Biblical term for God’s commands? (Exodus 24:7)

3. About the Scriptures:

• How might we describe the nature of the Scriptures? (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

• How do the Scriptures inspire and encourage faith? (Romans 10:17)

• What is to be our relationship with the Scriptures? (Joshua 1:8-9)

4. How did Jesus view our relationship with the Scriptures? (Matthew 4:4)

5. What practices are helpful in forming a relationship with the Scriptures?


REFLECTIONS:

• What is the basis of my worldview? My understanding of God, myself and my world? My moral compass? The lens through which I view the world?

• What is my relationship with the Scriptures? What do I believe about them? How important are they? How well acquainted am I with the Scriptures?

WHAT NOW?

• What steps will I take to increase my consumption of the Scriptures?

• How will I seek greater understanding of the Scriptures?

• How will I help others learn the Scriptures?
