As we begin a new year and a new decade, we are embarking on a new series that will take place over the course of 2020.  This series is called “2020 Vision: Clarity on what Matters.” Over the course of this coming year, we will be looking at a wide variety of topics and zeroing in on what Scripture says about them, gaining clarity as to how God calls us to live out our faith.

Scripture is the first and primary source that we turn to as we seek out the truth.  It is the Word of God and, as it says, is useful for teaching, rebuking, and training in righteousness.  As we begin this new year and this new series, we lay the groundwork for study, putting on our “spiritual glasses” so that we can see the world as God calls us to see it, through the lens of His Word.

Questions to take home:

  1. What do you think of when we say that the Bible is “The Word of God”?  Where do you place it on a level of importance in your life? How does this phrase impact how you read the Bible?
  2. Re-read our Scripture passages for today.  What does the Bible say that we should be doing with it?  What are some of it’s uses? How do these passages impact your approach to Scripture and interaction with it?
  3. How would you define the word “truth”?  Do you think that truth is unchanging (static) or variable (fluid)?  Read these passages in John: 14:6, 8:32, 17:17, 16:13, 1:14 &17, 18:37.  How does this impact how you think about truth?
