Process/Purpose

God’s Word is an inexhaustible, vast, priceless treasure because the Bible contains God’s very words to us. One saint of old spoke of Scripture as letters from Almighty God, and in reading these letters we “learn the heart of God in the words of God.” Bible study is so much more than a dry academic study. The Word awes us with its brilliance, captivates us with its poetic beauty, astounds us with its wisdom, and draws us nearer to the Lord. It is no wonder in Psalm 119 the Psalmist pours out His love for the Word of God with words such as these, “Your Word I have treasured in my heart,” Your Word is “better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces,” Your words “are the joy of my heart,” “my heart stands in awe of Your words,” and “I love Your Word exceedingly.”


The deeper we dig, the more we uncover such extraordinary things. One pastor put it this way, “The Word of God is like a deep mine, filled with precious treasures; but the believer must put forth effort to discover its riches. It takes careful reading and study, prayer, meditation, and obedience to mine the treasures of the Word of God; and the Holy Spirit of God is willing to assist us. Why are we so negligent when this great wealth lies so near at hand?" (Warren Wiersbe)


The aim of this class is twofold. First, this class is designed to inculcate the life-giving habit of being in God’s Word on a daily basis. Recent research studies overwhelmingly demonstrate that the greatest single factor in a person’s spiritual growth is daily consistent time alone reading the Word of God. Second, this class is designed to dig deep into one book of the Bible. We will learn the truth that we cannot exhaust the Word of God.

Process/Purpose

“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.”― Charles Spurgeon


“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12


Since the Word of God is “living and active” it has the unique ability to transform our lives as we spend time in it. The class will not only study the Bible for information, but for transformation as well. This course is designed to give girls an opportunity to develop an appreciation for, and basic understanding of, the Bible as they learn about and study God’s Word. This class will begin with asking the important questions about God’s word: What? Why? and How? We will cover an overview about the Bible and why it is important in our lives and how we can study it.


From there, we will use Seamless by Angie Smith to explore major  events from the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. The goal is to lead girls to a complete understanding of God’s story as seen from Genesis to Revelation. Each session will feature people, places, and promises, including maps, general Bible facts, word studies, and key information that ties all of Scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message. Then, we will turn to answer the questions of “Who is God?” and “Who am I?” Utilizing Defined by Priscilla Shirer as a guide, we will make an in-depth examination of spiritual truths from the Book of Ephesians to lead girls to a better understanding and appreciation of their God-given identity.

  • Also to understand that through our relationship with God and through humility, anyone can live out greatness in God’s Kingdom, that nobody is disqualified.

  • To understand God’s love for mankind as those created in His image, and to understand His heart to be reconciled to mankind.

  • Students will study and discuss one topic per week in class, looking at 8-12 different passages.

  • Students will have weekly assignments to encourage reflection and integration of thinking.

 

Class time will be highly interactive as the students read through passages in class and discuss them as a group. This course is designed to be personally challenging and not academically stressful. The goal is not only to give students an opportunity to work through a significant quantity of information but also to give them ample opportunity to wrestle with God’s truth.
