It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to WRITE. I could say that life has been busy and that would be VERY true but there’s always more to a story… As we go through this challenge, you’ll hear more of that story but for now….
Let’s jump in…
I thought it would be appropriate to start our scripture writing challenge in the book of Philippians. At such a time where things are very uncertain, people are sick, experiencing loss in various ways and JOY is waning; Philippians would be a great book to start our challenge.
Who wrote the book of Philippians? Paul wrote the book of Philippians. It was a letter.
Who were the recipients? The recipients of this letter were the believers in Philippi. The Philippian church was founded by Paul on his second missionary journey.
When and where was Philippians written? Paul wrote this letter while he was imprisoned in Rome. It was most likely written during his first imprisonment around AD 60-62.
Why is Philippians about and why could it be relevant to us today ?
Philippians is considered to be the book of joy. In fact the words “rejoice” and “joy” are found more times in this letter than in any of Paul’s other letters. By the end of this challenge, we would have learned as Paul did that “Jesus is our joy and this joy is grained more and more into our lives as our minds are renewed into His image day by day.” Paul also puts emphasis on unity and Christ. At a time where we are told to Social distance ourselves from each other and are prone to give into the worries of what life has to offer us, we too like the believers in Philippi, need to be reminded that “unity is essential for the church and for the progress of the gospel” and that Jesus is our Lord and Savior.
The Scripture Writing Plan
How will the Scripture writing plan work?
Every Sunday a reminder post will be posted with the weeks reading plan. On Monday- Friday we will write our the given day’s passage using the W.O.R.D bible study method and on Saturday we interact with each other about what we learned throughout the week.
Good Morning everyone!!!!! This was supposed to be posted a couple of days ago, but the weekend got away from me. We’ve finished up our 90 day tour through scripture and now we’re preparing for the Christmas season. Christmas is my favorite time of year, not because I get to spend a lot time with family or show love to my family through gift giving, but because I get to reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ. I get to reflect on what that means for me and what that means for everyone. So to prepare for Christmas we have some passages that we are going to go through. The Scripture writing challenge is simple for 5 minutes a day, You read the bible passage, write it out and reflect on it throughout the day. So today we’re looking at December 3rd. Let’s read, write and Reflect!!!! Have a great day everyone!!
Hey everyone starting on the May 1st, I’m introducing a challenge that’s new for this blog. About a year ago I came across a blog where a woman was challenging her readers to read their bible everyday- even for just 5 minutes- by writing out passages of scripture! At the time, I was a new mommy to a 3 month old baby and my quiet time was not consistent. I said WOW this would be perfect for me.
Now fast forward 10 months later and I want to encourage my readers to do the SAME thing. God’s Word is SO important and we should read it EVERYDAY! This is how we learn what God’s purpose for us and how He wants us to live!!!!
I thought it would be fitting to start with looking at the Proverbs 31 Woman because Mother’s Day is in May!
Everyday I will post the verse of the day and a blog about it. We will write it out and ponder on it through the day!!! Will you join me on this journey? I hope you will!!!!! Good day everyone!!!
