The Guardian of Biblical Truth - YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT Part 6

Series finale in the You Are What You Eat series and this week's message is about one of the hottest topics in modern Christians circles.  TRADITION...and its role in the Church and in our spiritual lives.

"Tradition?  You mean all that man-made stuff that Jesus hated?  That stuff's for the Pharisees!  I don't believe in Tradition; I believe in the Bible and YOU SHOULD TOO!"

If that's the perspective you're coming from, I invite you to check out the video below and see for yourself.  You may be surprised to discover that you're already depending on Tradition a lot more than you realized...

The Real Reason We Don't Read the Bible - YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT Part 3

Be honest.  What's the real reason you don't read the Bible more?  Too busy?  Not sure if it's true?  Don't need to hear God's voice?  Nope.  None of those are the root.  The real reason we don't read the Bible is simple: WE DON'T GET ANYTHING OUT OF IT!

I am fully convinced of that. If you found HOPE in the Bible, you'd read more.  If you found COMFORT in the Bible, you'd read more.  If you found DIRECTION in the Bible, you'd read more.  Our problem is not that we don't want to read the Bible; our problem is that we get nothing out of it when we do.

That's why this Week 3 in the YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT series might be the most important one for you.  In it, I talk about what I believe is the most important thing we need to do to find meaning in the Word of God.  We know that there's good stuff in the Bible; but it doesn't do me much good unless I know how to find it and understand it.

Check out this week's message - The Real Reason We Don't Read the Bible - below and get ready to discover the one key to unlocking the benefit of God's Word in your life.

Why I Need the Bible - YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT Part 2

Week 2 of the YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT series at The Well and this week's message is one that we all need.  Last week we looked at the question "WHAT is the Bible?"  We saw that the Bible is the breath/voice of God coming through the vocal chords of various writers.  This week, we discussed the question "WHY do I need the Bible?"

The majority of us know that we SHOULD read the Bible and know that it's important.  But the bottom line is that we often don't read the Bible because we don't see the impact of it in our lives.  We don't see how it is supposed to make my life/day any better.

Can I Trust the Bible? - YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT Part 1

Have you ever read the Bible and wondered if what you’re reading is true?  Do you wish you could open your Bible and actually understand what you’re reading?  Do you sometimes feel like the words in the Bible don’t really apply to your life today?

If so, then you’ll love the newest series that kicked off yesterday.  YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT: Learning to Live on God’s Word.  

Too many of God’s children don’t know His Word, don’t really believe His Word, or worst of all, don’t DO His Word.  The goal of this series will be to transform us from simply “hearers” of God’s Word to active “doers” of God’s Word.  

Praying Through Scripture - Extreme Makeover PRAYER Edition, Part 5

“We aren’t just reading words; but we are seeking the Word thru words.”

You can't speak about prayer without speaking about the Scriptures - aka, the Word of God.  If the goal of prayer is a conversation with God, then true prayer requires time spent prayerfully in the Bible.

That was the topic of Week 5 of the Extreme Makeover: PRAYER Edition series - PRAYING THROUGH SCRIPTURE.  Take a look at the video and find out what it means to pray through Scripture, why we need to do it and most importantly, HOW it can be done.
