So you've been coming to Blast/Ignite for a while, and you like it. You like the games, being with friends, and hearing about Jesus. Even if you don't understand it all, you feel good hearing about Jesus' love for you and that he wants the best for you. Now you're curious to know more about Jesus. So, you made time in your busy schedule to try to read the Bible. You've found a place to be alone (your room, your car, a park, the dryer, a Disney sponsored Miley Cyrus tour, etc.) so you can think and not be distracted. You go through your mental list. Cell phone silenced and put way? Check. No laptop? Check. No people? Check. No clue what you're doing? Check. Wait! Somehow, miracles of all miracles, you remember something from Wednesday nights. So you sit down and read what the Bible says. Not what you think it says, not what you think it means, but what it actually says. Then you remember to look for what that the passage teaches about God. Awesome! Two for two. But now what? Is this it? Just read the Bible and learn about God? There must be more. Something in your mind is nagging you. You think, "Now shouldn't I do something?" Hmmmmm.
Anyone who has read the Bible looking to connect with God has had something like this happen to him/her. Sure the details are different, but we all end up asking, "What does God want me to do?" It's a great question, and sends us in the right direction. But is it the best question? Join us this Wednesday, Oct 16 @ 7 pm as we figure out what to do after we read the Bible.
Each week two blogs will be posted for Blast and Ignite.
