God does not mean for us to live our lives in a vacuum. He desires that we seek His will and follow His plan for us to become more like his son Jesus.
If you are asking, “How do I accomplish this?”, here is an answer: Study God’s Word.
One of the very best ways to accomplish this task is to become engaged with other Christians in a refreshing study of His Word. We feel like the study of God’s Word is crucial for our Church and for our individual lives as well, therefore, it is a priority at Waples Baptist Church.
The Bible is more than a mere history book of people, places, and things. It is a guidebook to provide us with His plan and His purpose for our life’s journey. We were never designed to live our lives without help. The Bible is the very best help book in the world. Therefore, on Sunday mornings we spend time studying what He has in store for us, as well as sharing what He has done for us. If Sunday morning before church does not fit, there are other opportunities throughout the week as well. We have weekly study opportunities that are available also that might meet your need to grow in His Word.
D. L. Moody said, “The Bible was not given to increase our knowledge, but to change our lives.” When we meet on Sundays and throughout the week to discover the nuggets of gold that GOD has in store for us, we discover the amazing relationship that He desires from us. We find strength and nourishment from the study of His Word, and we always seem to find encouragement from the others who are involved with us in applying His truths.
An example of this is found in John 8:31-32 (NKJV) where Jesus said”
. . . If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
God expects us to read His Word and apply on a daily basis what we have discovered. In this process, a whole new meaning is given to our lives, once we become involved in this process.
If you are not involved in an in-depth study like we are describing here, please come join us in our journey to discover what we are to be doing on our way to becoming more like God’s very own son, Jesus Christ.
