Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Biblical Foundation (Building Deep)
The Critical Need: God’s Word is Dynamic (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
When the Scriptures speak, God speaks! When God speaks, He speaks primarily through His Scriptures. Edmond Chan states that “truth” does change anyone – rather it is when God’s truth is applied, that people’s lives are transformed. In order to “hear” from God, it is necessary for one to be spending time reading God’s Word and allowing time for the Lord to use His Word to speak to our hearts. Some thoughts for you to consider today – Why not consider the way you spend time with God daily – does your time need a fresh approach? Or some different method? Has your devotional time become stale or uninspiring – is it rushed? Do you need to find a place that is quiet and undisturbed for this? If necessary, determine to make some adjustments today.
