Our theme for 2021 is “God’s Story”. Beginning in March, we will read through “The Story”, an abridged, chronological Bible and rediscover God’s rescue story in all sixty-six books in Scripture over the course of thirty-one weeks. The Bible is a book about God. HE is the hero; mankind is the supporting cast. Since it is our tendency to make everything about us, “The Story” will help us to remember that everything is about God!
Our memory verse for 2021 is, “All Scripture is inspired by God and beneficial for teaching, for rebuke, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man or woman of God may be fully capable, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17; NASB) Information warfare is as old as the garden of Eden and characterized by misinformation. We used to say, “Don’t believe everything you hear.” Now we say, “Don’t believe anything you hear.” As we live in a time when facts are debatable and sources of information are biased, the Bible provides us with solid ground to stand on. It is divinely inspired and highly beneficial. We are fully capable of living in a time like this because the Bible contains absolute truth from an absolute God! Do not simply take hold of a Bible. Let the Bible take hold of you in 2021!
