Scripture for the Week

Psalms 1:1-2

"Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law, he meditates day and night.

Quote: You can’t do the will of God if you don’t know the Word of God!

Memory Verse: Isaiah 28:10

"For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.”

Quote: The Word that spoke worlds into existence has the power to change lives!

Prayer Works!

Prayer for the week:

Father, we thank You for Your love, grace, and constant presence. Thank You for our loved ones, family, friends, and fellow believers. Please bless their lives and enlarge their territory for Your name’s sake. We pray that we give glory to Your name through how we approach and live this day. Give us strength to believe Your promises, to embrace Your commands, and bear the burdens You call us to carry. We pray that You will help us to love You with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength. Help us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Help us to share Your truth, “the Good news”, to make disciples of people from every background, and to seek the good of people from every race. Deliver us from being unhappy Christians. Deliver us from the sinful habit of complaint. Help us to rejoice in You, to be constant in prayer, and to give thanks in all circumstances. Let Your will and not our will be done, Holy Spirit make us more like Jesus. We ask this by faith and by faith we declare it done. In Jesus name. Amen!

Quote: Jesus dies in public, so you don’t have to live for Him in private!

John 4:4 "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."

The Bible describes itself as spiritual food: the water, milk, bread, and meat of your spiritual life. It’s everything you need for sustenance. We should eat from its bounty daily.

Here’s how can you feed yourself on the Word of God:

Receive the Word with your ears. Commit to going to church and listening to God’s Word being preached. Read the Word with your eyes. Read and study the Bible. Just having it in your house is not going to bless your life. You must have the Bible in your heart, and that starts with reading it. 

Research the Word with your hands and mouth. When studying the Word of God, keep a pencil in your hand. Write down what God teaches. Talk with other believers about what you’re discovering. 

Reflect on the Word with your mind. Think about, meditate and chew on God’s Word. 

Remember the Word with your heart. Commit God’s Word to memory.

Also, as you study the Bible it’s important that you understand how to study the Bible. 2 Timothy 2:15 encourages us “to rightly divide the word of truth”. There are right ways and wrong ways to interpret Scripture. There are some methods for interpreting the Bible that will always give you the wrong interpretation. You can’t become all that God wants you to be on a

faulty foundation. God’s Word, The Bible, God’s truth never changes. You may not always understand God’s Word. You may not always like it. It won’t always be culturally or politically correct. But it’s the only thing stable enough to build your life upon. Here are some truths for interpreting the Bible that will lead you in the right direction so that you have the right foundation.

The Bible is its own best commentary. Scripture interprets Scripture. Isaiah 28:10 says precept upon precept line upon line. Practice this principle by using a Bible with cross-references in the margin. By looking up cross-references, you’ll get a clearer picture of what God has said throughout the entire Word.  

You need faith and the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture. The Bible doesn’t make sense to non-believers. It is God’s love letter to believers. 1 Cor. 2:11 says, “No one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God”.

Don’t form a doctrine based solely on a historical event. Don’t build your doctrine upon historical passages of the Bible. In Mark 1, Jesus got up before dawn to go somewhere and pray by Himself, but that doesn’t mean you have to do the same. When you’re learning doctrine, look at doctrinal passages.

Never interpret Scripture based on your own experiences. The point of Bible study is not to shape Scripture to agree with your subjective opinions or your experiences. Feelings lie. Emotions lie. Discover God’s timeless truth, let it shape your life.

God doesn’t want you to just taste the goodness of his Word. He wants you to feast on it! Once you finish reading, take a few moments to walk through P.R.A.Y.

P - Pause to be still. Meditate on what you’ve just read, allowing it to sink in.

R - Reflect on Scripture. What is God saying to you through His Word? Speak aloud a verse even write it down.

A - Ask for God’s help. The challenge is to be with Jesus and become more like Him.

Y - Yield to His will in your life. God invites you into the beautiful plan He has for you, understanding His plan is beyond anything we could ask or imagine.

Prepare for a Summer of Fun

Stay Safe During A Heat Wave

By Dr. Rhonda Johnson

Extreme heat kills thousands of people each year around the world. Exposure to high temperatures can really effect our bodies. Who are most at risk?

• Older people and those with chronic conditions

• People who lack air conditioning

• People who have labor-intensive jobs that require them to work outside.

• Babies and young children because they sweat less than adults. Children also play outside more often may lack the judgment to rest and drink more fluids.

• Athletes can be at risk if they over-exert themselves in hot weather and fail to stay hydrated.

The spectrum can range from heat rash, to sunburn, heat cramps, to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. The most serious are heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Things you can do to prevent heat related illness:

• NEVER leave an infant or a child unattended child in a car! Always check to make sure all children are out the car before leaving.

Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing.

• Stay cool indoors: stay in an air-conditioned place as much as possible. If your home does not have air conditioning, spend a few hours in the mall or public library.

• Do outdoor activities when it’s coolest, like morning and evening hours. Rest often in shady areas and hydrate.

• Drink plenty of fluids: drink more water, and you have to replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat – so a sports drink is helpful but be careful if you have diabetes, kidney disease or high blood pressure.

• Avoid hot and heavy meals: they can add heat to your body.

Pay attention to weather alerts and warnings. Check on friends and family members who live alone.
