The Book is divided into two sections: first, the superiority of the Son in His person and work (1:1-10:18); and second, the practical application of the superiority of the Son in the lives of believers (10:19-13:25)…we study these sections, chapter by chapter, verse-by-verse, “with a true heart in full assurance of faith…” (Heb 10:22).

“Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
Hebrews 13:20-21

Come and see…join us, take Jesus up on His Word:
Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Matthew 11:29

INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY
Description & Objective
The way we read and understand the Bible really affects the way we live. Since we make decisions based on how we understand the Bible, it is important that we read the Bible in a healthy way that leads us to the right conclusions about God, ourselves, and the world we live in. In this course, we will learn how to observe, interpret and apply the Bible soundly.

What Is…

Lay upon me Thy easy yoke of self-forgetfulness that through it I may find rest.” A.W.Tozer

A book I read when I was a wee-teen, The First Deadly Sin by Lawrence Saunders, always comes to mind when I am challenged in my everyday walk. Odd as it may seem to you, but in it, the author refers to Pride as the first deadly sin. I never forgot that.

It is, as the Bible tells us from the very beginning the cause of all the mayhem in this world. “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall,Proverbs 16:18 one of the early proverbs my younger daughter memorized when she was in Kindergarten…and I with her, fulfilled 100 verses that year.

I find this last line of Tozer’s prayer an easy solution to remember when my “self-life” demands to rise. For I was in fact, the queen of pride…still am.

If I do not purposely begin each day acknowledging God and who He is in my life, I know that I will rest on my self-reliance very quickly. I also have come to realize that life without God first, God second, and God third every day that I am awake, is a labor in self-love.

It is insane to live today like there is no tomorrow, musing in self-indulgence! It is the very thing that I despise! Therefore my need for His grace to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit every moment, every single day becomes the cry of my heart…all of 86,400 seconds…525,600 minutes.

His rest is all I desire. “Come unto Me, all you who labor and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
