Approach: Week 4 - The Holy Place

Pastor Tim Walker
Life in The Holy Place is about…
John 6:25-70
“Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood” What?!
2 Corinthians 4:1-18
“our outer self is wasting away” What?!
2 Timothy 4:1-8
“poured out as a drink offering” What?!
For further study: Exodus 25:23-40; 29:38-46; 37:10-24; 40:16-27; Numbers 4:5-10; 28:7-8; Leviticus 24:1-9; Revelation 1:12-20

Can you recite Romans 6:4 from memory?

Life in The Holy Place is sole dependence on Jesus for light and life. It’s about trusting Jesus and the Bible. It’s about faith.
Learning to live by faith is similar to how a pilot must learn to trust in his instruments as an Accurate External Standard of Reference. Without instruments, the pilot would get disoriented and crash. The results are the same when we choose not to trust in the Bible. To live by faith we have to trust in the Bible as our A.E.S.R.
The Bible is absolutely trustworthy. It was written over a 1600 year span, by more than 40 different authors , from all walks of life, in many different places and circumstances, on three different continents, in three different languages, in a variety of literary styles, covering hundreds of controversial topics, and yet, in perfect harmony, communicates one unified story: God’s redemption of humanity.
Read 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and fill in the blanks:
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for ________________,
for _______________________, for _____________________, and
for ______________________ in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
In the Bible, God meets with us to teach us the way to live by faith, to reprove us when we choose the wrong way, to correct us so we can get back on track, and to train us so we can stay on track. Wow!
How can we start to establish the Bible as our A.E.S.R.?
Read, pray, & obey. Take time every day to talk with
God through the pages of His Word. Read to know Him, ask Him questions, search for His answers, and obey His directions. Be real with God and let Him be real with you…really.
Study with trusted friends. The history we read in the Bible happened a long time ago and on the other side of the world. It takes work to understand what it first said, what it really means, and how to apply it. We can help each other.
Commit the Bible to memory. A pilot can’t just glance at some gauges on the ground then hope to fly by the seat of his pants. He needs those instruments with him.
We also need the Bible with us…all the time.
