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 9 for five weeks.

This week's lesson is:
Please God, not people 1 Thessalonians 2:4
Our purpose is to please God, not people.
Matola Cidade Church of the Nazarene in Mozambique honored Ana da Conceição Coelho, a woman who has served in the Church of the Nazarene for over 50 years. She has dedicated her life to teaching the Word of God to the children in the church.
Those at the service shared their gratitude and testimonies of how Coelho, or Avó Ana as she is affectionately known (meaning Grandma Ana), impacted their lives by sharing God’s love and Word with them.
Senior Pastor Arsénio Manjate shared the joy that characterized Avó Ana’s life by reading Philippians 4:4, which states, “Rejoice in the Lord always; I will say it again: rejoice!”
“Let us all rejoice for Avó Ana’s life and ministry,” Manjate said. “I am so honored to be a pastor of this great counselor, teacher, and woman of prayer.”
She is the last member of the former European District, which was formed out of necessity due to the segregation laws in both Mozambique and South Africa.
In her speech for the occasion, Avó Ana reiterated how much she loved working with children and sharing with them God’s plan for their lives, according to God’s Word. Several generations have benefitted from the work of Avó Ana, and many individuals were called to ministry after sitting in her Sunday school classes as children.
Many current church leaders heard about God’s love for them at Avó Ana’s feet, including Vasco Mabote, superintendent of the Matola District, and General Superintendent Fili Chambo.
The Matola Cidade Church of the Nazarene offered thanks to Avó Ana for always proclaiming with joy, “To God be the glory!”

Symbols of our faith
While teaching children about world religions, a teacher asked her students to bring a symbol of their family's faith to class.
The next day, she asked each student to come forward and share the symbol with the class.
The 1st child said, "I'm Muslim, and this is my prayer rug."
The 2nd child said, "I'm Jewish, and this is my family's menorah."
The 3rd child said, "I'm Roman Catholic, and this is my Mom's rosary."
The 4th child said, "I'm Greek Orthodox, and this is an icon of my patron saint."
The 5th child said, "I'm a Baptist, and this is my casserole dish."
Just like God
My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?"
I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we alike?"
"You're both old," he replied.
An accountant dies and goes to Heaven. He is met by St Peter who goes through the usual questionnaire.
"What sort of accountant are you?" says St Peter
"Public Practitioner," is the reply.
He gives his name. St Peter goes through some files and pulls one out.
"Oh, yes. We've been expecting you. You've reached your allotted span," says St Peter.
"How can that be?" says the accountant. "I'm too young to go. I'm only forty-eight"
"No, that's impossible."
"Why do you say that?"
"Well we've been looking at your time sheets and the hours you've charged your clients. By our reckoning you're at least ninety three."
