Rooted: Understanding the Power & Purpose of God’s Word

The Bible.

As believers we’re told to know it, treasure it, live it, share it, and guard it. But why bother with what some see as an antiquated relic? Why have people fiercely held on to it, even given their lives for its message?

You see, the Bible is the very word of God. Spoken by the same God who, with a word, spoke the world into existence. These words have been birthed from His heart, breathed by His mouth, and given to us through the hands of faithful men. Lay hold of these words and you begin to experience the transformative power of its message. Grow roots down into it and you’ll find sustaining nourishment and storm-anchoring faith.

 

Rooted: Understanding the Power and Purpose of God’s Word, is a unique, 6-week Bible study to help you secure deeper spiritual roots. By digging into selected Scriptures, you’ll learn about God’s sacred love for you, recognize the value and worth of Scripture, and apply practical truths for powerful living. Using an inductive study method you’ll ground yourself by:

• READING six specific historical accounts from Scripture
• RELATING to the culture and context of God’s Word
• REFLECTING on these passages so you can live out God’s principles
• REMEMBERING the lessons through simple memorization and compelling narrative

So let’s get rooted in the Word… because deep roots ground us.

Steve Saint is the son of martyred missionary pilot, Nate Saint. In 2012, Steve was partially paralyzed from an accident at his research and development company, ITEC, which serves missionaries around the globe. He published a series of videos chronicling his injury and recovery. I've linked you with the first one, but you can watch the others too. Just look at the dates they were posted to view them in order. For a broader understanding of his father's story, refer to Day 5 of your homework. Also, the movie, Beyond The Gates of Splendor, is a full-length feature film documenting the details of these events. Steve Saint narrates the film.I highly recommend watching it.
