Sit. Walk. Stand.

Week 11

In Nehemiah 8 we see an incredible scene played out. The people of Israel have been without the Word of God for 70 years while they were in exile. The Temple has been rebuilt and the city fortified and in October of that year, they come together to listen to the reading of God’s Word. Over the course of 2 days, they read the Scriptures. Not only do they read the Scriptures, but the Levites (priests) teach the people what the Scriptures mean. Then they go one step further and begin to act on what they have heard – they apply it to their lives.

What happens in Nehemiah is a great guide for us as we look at the spiritual discipline of “Study”. As Christians, we should study the Bible regularly. Studying Scripture can be defined in 3 parts: observation, interpretation, and application.

This week we heard from Russell Johnson (who will be joining the RADIUS Teaching Team in January 2018). He walked us through Nehemiah 8 and these 3 principles of study. He concluded the message by reminding us of Paul’s words to the Ephesians in chapter 6 – that our study of Scripture is meant to help us in our stand against the enemy and his schemes. The result of studying God’s Word will always lead us to joy and contentment and will help us stand against sin.

If you would like to begin a conversation about following King Jesus or more information on how He might be calling you to go, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Over this series, we’ve been working through a few books to help guide our training. If you would like to check them out, you can purchase them below.
