The Good Book: "Cows in the Pasture"
There are over a dozen names and titles the Bible is known as. Following is a list of the most well known: God’s Word The Holy Scriptures Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (B.I.B.L.E.) My blueprint for life” Biblia Sacra (Holy Bible) Sword of the Spirit Among the world’s great books, the Bible is without parallel. At Kfirst, we believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. It is authoritative, relevant and applicable to our lives. It is foundational for all we believe. February we journey into a new series called 'The Good Book.' And our heart is to help provide a practical approach to the Scriptures. We want to put a deep focus on, not just what the Bible is, but how to approach it in everyday life. Why? We see the Bible as more than doctrine and narrative, history and prophecy. The Scriptures are an invitation to experience God. Come join us as we revisit this ancient book and experience the God who speaks through it.

The purpose of scripture isn’t just information to know of God but an invitation to experience God.

Questions to ask when I'm reading scripture:
- Why is this in here?
- What is God revealing about Himself in this passage?
- What does the passage teach me about myself and relationships?
