While we can say, “so far so good” (as far as we know), and while we can be honest and acknowledge that this is not what we prefer, we also need to remember to,
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
FIRST, to make sure you stay steady and keep thinking biblically, we want to encourage you to continue your daily habit of Bible reading and prayer. The daily reading program we use is updated daily on the Grace to You website, so stay current—a daily diet of God’s Word will always be exactly what the Great Physician has ordered. Add Scripture memory and meditation to your daily routine, put what you read into practice, and let the Spirit renew your mind by filling you with all the fullness of God in Christ.
SECOND, to augment your personal exposure to Scripture, we’d like to suggest a number of excellent online resources for biblical and theological content. Available online or by podcast (i.e., you can get it delivered to your smartphone), listen to what interests you and you’ll be greatly edified.
Please use the time during these Coronavirus days to keep on growing in God’s Word. Happy listening, happy learning!
Love in the Truth,
Grace Church (gracegreeley.org)
We’re starting with our own church’s resources because we realize there may be a number of you who don’t realize all the content we have available. Getting familiar with what we’ve been teaching over the years will help you assimilate more fully into the life of this very special local church. You can get caught up with sermons you missed from Luke or Philippians; listen in on the men’s theology class or Psalm 119; or learn to think more carefully about local outreach (i.e., apologetics & evangelism) and more far-reaching outreach (i.e., missions).
