Bible Outlines for Reading, Teaching, or Discussion Groups

Precious Promises

Nehemiah 9:7-8 tells us that God made a covenant (a binding agreement) with Abraham and his descendants—all those who believe (Rom 4:11) of every generation, including us today. Chapter 9 lists some of the blessings that God gave His people, and ends with the people reaffirming or refreshing their covenant with God. What can we learn (Rom 15:4) from this chapter about how God blesses those who believe in Him? In other words,

What does God covenant to do for His people?   
v.8 give us a home with Him
v.8 perform all His words ...

Lessons from Home

De-Stressing

We had another “stress test” recently. A plumbing problem upstairs caused water to pour through a downstairs light fixture onto a wood floor that isn’t supposed to get wet. That started six weeks of dust, claustrophobia, and waiting for things to be fixed.

I have fresh evidence that stress can be caused by impatience, uncertainty, and the “gloomies,” and I’m trying to apply the following “Lessons from Home.”

1. Displace impatience with a ...

Matthew Chapter 12

The book of Matthew has some of my favorite application. Chapter 12 helps us to understand Jesus’ ministry to us today.

Matthew Ch.12  Don’t be blind to, or bound from, the greatness of Jesus’ ministry.
                                             (blinded by legalism or Satan)
                                                                 (bound by Satan, evil, refusing the truth, or lack of repentance)

________________________________________

v.1-13    Don’t be so legalistic, that you can’t be directed by Jesus to do good,
                    to be kind and helpful, to heal, to rescue, and to restore as whole.

v.14-21  Jesus’ ministry is greater than ...

Application, Application!!

When I started studying the Bible, I loved reading it. My problem was remembering what I had read, particularly a day or two later. So I started writing down statements to remind myself of what Scripture says about what God wants us to do and to know—“application.”

I had a statement for each paragraph, chapter, and book. Since I was particularly interested in ...

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

The Complete Picture

            It’s not difficult to take in the complete picture of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Mona Lisa. The portrait is only about thirty inches tall by eighteen inches wide.1 It was hanging behind bullet-proof glass when my family and I saw it in the Louvre in Paris. What’s difficult is figuring out the expression on her face. What did the artist have in mind? Was he hoping to intrigue us with ...

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

Love is Christ’s Driving Force

 In 2010, my family and I attended the International Christian Retail Show, where Christian book publishers … promote their new products to retailers. As writers, we wanted to see how the book promotion process worked.

Giant posters decorated the halls of the convention center like murals. One of them promoted The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Aslan the lion with his golden mane and piercing eyes dominated the center of the poster. His face ...

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

Isaiah 2:2-4 gives us some good news concerning the future.

A World Set Right

            In the latter days, priorities and values will change from what they are now. People will understand the value of knowing God and His word, and they will come to Him to learn. They will come, not just to get information or to hear a new idea or philosophy, but to embrace His word and His ways, to be conformed to them, and to practice ...
