Bible Challenge 2009 - Week 1

Knights and Ladies,

Ray Vander Laan in Faith Lessons in the dust of the rabbi: becoming a disciple says, “Speaking, teaching, and living the Word of God was (and still is) what makes disciples.”

In the Great Commission, Jesus tells us to go into all the world and make disciples, not just baptised converts:

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
(Matthew 28:18-20)

In order to make and teach disciples, we must be disciples. We must speak, teach, and live out the Word of God!

The Bible. It is the Word of God. It is infallible, inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient. It is the source and the norm of Christian theology.

“The Christian Bible, it is important to remember, was assembled over four centuries of the most painstaking study, open debate, discussion, and research. . . By the time the New Testament canon - the official compilation of books - was accepted by all Christians, the Christian Bible was the most studiously examined proclamation of faith ever compiled. . . Neither persecution nor so-called enlightened skeptics have shaken confidence in it. This is why thousands have been willing to lay down their lives for the Bible, from the Scillitan martyrs to the persecuted Church today. All true Christians affirm that God has spoken; that the Bible is the Word of God.” (Chuck Colson, The Faith)

“It is always best to drink at the well and not from the tank. You shall find that reading the Word of God for yourselves, reading it rather than notes upon it, is the surest way of growing in grace. Drink of the unadulterated milk of the Word of God, and not of the skim milk, or the milk and water of man's word." ("How to Read the Bible" a sermon by C. H. Spurgeon)

Accept the challenge, take the quest!

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
