How to R.E.A.P. your Bible more in 2017

This will help you GROW in 2017! 

If you’re a Christian, you’ve heard these…

“Read your Bible every day”

“God speaks to you from the Scriptures”

“Meditate on the Word”

“Faith comes from hearing, and hearing from the Word of God”

These are just some of the many encouragements / instructions (or condemnations?) regularly heard in Christian circles. Yet from an anonymous “Hidden habits” survey we conducted in our London Hammersmith congregation a while ago, I realised again that the discipline and delight of a rich, regular, and meaningful daily interaction with God through Scripture is not the norm for many believers. I won’t bore you with the stats, but suffice to say that the answer’s given to the question “On average, how many days a week do you take a deliberate moment to read the Bible?” showed that many well-meaning believers struggle with this life-given habit. Sadly, Facebook seems so much more attractive that the Faithbook!

Pause: How would you personally answer that question right now?

From personal and pastoral experience, I believe that the habit of a regular rich meaningful interaction with the Bible is by far one of the mist important spiritual disciples for any disciple of Jesus, and is the major determining factor for a consistent and victorious faith walk through all circumstances of life.

So how does one do it? MY ANSWER: Don’t just “read” the Bible – “R.E.A.P” it!

Here are a few tips from me to help you get going or to revitalise a rich, regular devotional time with God:

It’s Super Sunday Weekend in London!

If you are anywhere close to London this weekend, join us for an incredible Sunday as all our three Every Nation congregations get together for one very special God-encounter!

This is a fantastic highlight time for us as a church across the region when all our three congregations come together as one to celebrate what God has done as well as being inspired to move boldly into the next season as the Spirit leads us.

We will be meeting in the Drewe Theatre – map here – By the photo above you can see our new updated venue set-up – really cool! There is plenty of free car parking in the surrounding streets.

The meeting will start at 10.30 and continue a little longer than usual until 12.30, followed by a free light lunch for all.

How much should I give to the church?

Ok, lets tackle a big one and talk about money. And giving. For a change.

“Each one should give as they have decided in their hearts to give”

What have you decided to give? How do you conclude how much to give & where to give?

To help you decide right, here’s a message I called “The Heart of Giving” – I really believe it will bring you loads of freedom and faith in your financial giving.
