Bible Reading Plan


Redemptive-Historical Bible Reading Plan

This year we are doing a 16 part plan that reveals God's plan of redemption in the Old Testament. Here is what the organizer says about it:


"I have outlined redemptive history in 16 stages, from creation up through the open-ended expectation of the Day of the Lord. Then I provide carefully curated sections from the OT that trace this history. I tried to pick at least one chapter from every OT book, but to keep it reasonably short I had to leave some out. I also pepper in psalms along the way. Then, for each stage, I provide a chapters from the NT that bring out how each of those steps of redemptive history (for ancient Israel) are fulfilled in the new era in Christ." Greg Laniers Blog


We will have three to four weeks to read and reflect on each part.

We will reflect on PART 5 for three weeks

More than 800 Bolivian youth attend spiritual retreat during Carnaval

More than 800 young people from the El Alto Noroeste District in Bolivia gathered during the annual Carnaval, similar to Mardi Gras traditions in America, held 18-21 February. While the streets in the city of El Alto were filled with drunkenness and parties, these youth were seeking the presence of God.


According to district NYI coordinator Leonel Limachi, the tradition of holding these camps during Carnaval began in 2005.


“We want young people on those days to be more filled with the Holy Spirit and learn more about the Word through socio-biblical games, conferences, and preaching, and to be away from the parties that occur in Carnaval,” said Limachi.


With the motto "Holiness: My Nazarene legacy," three camps were held in total, organized by the district's zones. One of the zones went to the highlands, another to Yungas, and the last to the city of Cochabamba.

Praise and worship were key components of the camps. In addition, there was time for games and recreational activities. The youth enjoyed outdoor sports and creative activities, but the camps' focus was the Bible.

The youth met in several Bible study sessions, where different topics related to our denomination were explored. The speakers focused on profound teachings that challenged listeners to improve their relationship with God and to follow Christ. Attendees were also given a study book on the topic of Nazarene Identity.


Ultimately, the camps were a big hit, and students enjoyed the opportunity to distance themselves from the lifestyles and distractions on public display during the Carnaval celebrations.

“Not only were they able to enjoy the company of other young Christians, but they also had the opportunity to deepen their faith and learn more about their relationship with God,” Limachi said.“

Humor... Kind of


Perspective

A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her daughter was very sick with a fever. She left her work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication. She got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys in the car.

The woman looked around and found an old rusty coat hanger that had been thrown down on the ground, Then she looked at the hanger and said, "I don't know how to use this."

So she bowed her head and asked God to send her some help. Within five minutes an old rusty car pulled up, with a dirty, greasy, bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag on his head. The woman thought, "This is what you sent to help me?" But, she was desperate, so she was also very thankful.

The man got out of his car and asked her if he could help. She said, "Yes, my daughter is very sick. I stopped to get her some medication and I locked my keys in my car. I must get home to her. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?"

He said, "Sure". He walked over to the car, and immediately the car was opened. She hugged the man and through her tears she said, "Thank You So Much! You are a very nice man."

The man replied, "Lady, I am not a nice man. I just got out of prison today. I was in prison for car theft and have only been out for about an hour."

The woman hugged the man again and with sobbing tears cried out loud, "Oh, Thank you God! You even sent me a Professional!”

interstate driving

A state trooper sees a vehicle on the interstate doing 24 miles an hour and pulls the car to make sure everything is all right. When he approaches the driver he discovers that it is a nun. "Excuse me, sister. But are you alright ?" He asked. She replies, "Oh, yes officer. We're just fine. Was I doing something wrong?" The officer says, "Well sister, you were traveling way under the speed limit and I was concerned that you might be having car trouble or something." "But officer", the nun interrupts, "I saw a sign there about a mile back that said 24, and I know I wasn't going any faster than that." Chuckling, the trooper says, "Sister, that was a state highway route marker, this is State Route 24, not the speed limit. The speed limit signs have a MPH at the bottom." "Oh, now don't I feel foolish!", replied the nun turning red. "That's ok, but please try to be more careful, I would hate to see you get hurt", finished the officer. Then as he turns to say good-bye to the nuns in the back seat, he notices for the first time that they are trembling violently and quite pale. "Sister, what is wrong with your friends? Can I escort you to a hospital ?" "Oh, no, they're all right. We just turned off of Route 135."
