“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:27
What a walk that must of have been! Two disciples strolling along the Emmaus Road with the risen Messiah. Jesus took them through the Old Testament explaining how all along, the Scriptures were pointing to Him.
This Fall, we at Bethel Grace want to go on comparable journey with the Lord. During our Sunday 9 a.m. hour, we are organizing communities to take part in “The Gospel Project.” This is a three year journey through the Bible from beginning to end with a focus on the story of redemption in Christ.
According to Lifeway Christian Publishers, “The Gospel Project exists to point kids, students, and adults to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through weekly group Bible studies and additional resources, all ages discover how God’s plan of redemption unfolds throughout Scripture and still today, compelling them to join the mission of God.”
This opportunity is all about learning the Gospel Story while engaging in Gospel Community and inspiring Gospel Mission.
Here are several reasons why we are encouraging this at Bethel Grace…
Biblical literacy. We desire the people of Bethel Grace to know the story of the Bible from beginning to end. Even more, we want to get to the heart of the Scripture, God’s plan of redemption in Jesus Christ. From start to finish, the story line of Scripture shows God’s plan to rescue and redeem His creation through His Son. Knowing this helps us love the Lord more and more.
Gospel community. This program is designed in such a way that we not only get to know Christ better, but we get to know one another in a deeper way as well. Exercises and discussion questions will help us share our thoughts and hearts with one another.
Family discipleship. Our children, students and adults will all be moving through this material together at the same pace. You’ll be able to have fellowship with people in other classes. If you have kids or grandkids at Bethel Grace, you’ll be able to talk with them about the truths we are all learning together.
Gospel mission. With such a focus on the grace of God in Christ, we are confident the people of Bethel Grace will have increased love and passion to spread the Good News about Jesus. Together we will be equipped for outreach in our knowledge of the Lord.
