God as your Pilot
Last weekend, I took some of our young adults on a camp to Point Lonsdale.
While we were at there, we had some GREAT God conversations, went for walks along the beach, watched DVD’s, ate too much food Some studied for exams while others relaxed and read books.
While walking along the beach, I was intrigued (actually…I am always intrigued) by the big ships that navigate their way through the treacherous water at the heads of Port Phillip Bay and then make their way up the shipping channel to where they dock.
If the ship’s Captain is not familiar with Port Phillip Bay, it would be dangerous for them to try to navigate their way through the heads, through the bay and into port by themselves. As a result, on numerous occasions, I saw the pilot boat taking a pilot out to a ship so that the pilot could safely navigate the ship into and through the bay.
As believers in Jesus, God is our pilot. And one way that God guides and leads us is through his Word.
Spending time in God’s Word and reading what he has to say to us is important to each of us.
The young adults agreed during the weekend that it would be good to read the Bible in one year all together. So that is what we are going to do!
We will be doing this as a group following a reading plan using an app on our phones or tablets. By using the app, we will be able to encourage each other and talk about what we have been reading and where God has been guiding us, teaching us and challenging us.
If you have wanted to read your Bible in a year but haven’t got around to it or if you have read your Bible in a year and would like to do it again, then please join us.
You can read it on your own, use your own reading plan, you can read it in your small group, with your spouse or we can start a new group on the app and read it together.
We are using is the You Version Bible app”.
If you would like to join the young adults in reading your Bible in a year, or are currently working through a reading plan where you are reading your Bible in a year, I’d love to hear from you, so that we can encourage each other as we keep reading God’s Word.
Let’s continue to allow God to be out pilot and see what he teaches us and where he leads us.
