As we start a new series reading through the book of Ephesians, Dave talks about the Bible and why it’s so important to us. He also introduces the Spiritual Practice we will be learning: Digging for Gems
Verses for Reflection:
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
The word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. Hebrews 4:12-13

- Have you ever experienced “Bible Goggles” or “Bible Fog”?
- Do you have any questions about the Bible? Where could you find answers?
