Getting People into God's Word and God's Word into His People

The Apostle Paul told Timothy, his son in the faith: “You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1-3).

I want to give you this same word of encouragement as you begin this study with me and the Mini Bible College. I want to let you know how grateful we are to God for your desire to become a disciple – a student and follower of Christ – and begin to be nurtured so that you can grow in your faith. As we move through the study I want you to be asking yourself the following questions:

• What does the Word of God say?

• What does this passage mean?

• What does this passage mean to me? How can I apply God’s eternal principles to my life today?

If you have these three questions in mind and search for their answers, then this course will be truly fruitful and profitable in your life. I trust that as we study Genesis through Revelation you will grow in the knowledge of God and in your relationship with His Son, Christ Jesus, as you come to better understand His plan for the world and you.

It is my prayer that the experience of this study will be a defining moment in your spiritual life and will lay a strong foundation for continued growth in your life as a disciple.

Praying for His blessing upon you,
