We had a full day yesterday! In the morning, Tim Jones led us in the very question, “what’s the big deal?” A lot of times, we approach sin or decisions with that very question, thinking that our decisions aren’t connected to every other circumstance in our lives. But if we take a step back, we can see that there’s a connection, there’s a long line of decisions we can make, and things are a big deal. In the afternoon, we had some downtime and ventured over to Carter Caves Pool to cool off and have some fun together. During the evening session, Tommy Oaks challenged us with the simple truth that the Word of God is the most important book and the most unique in the world. There is none like it, none that can compare to it. He then gave us all a challenge to finish the Bible all the way through in a year–breaking it up into only 3 chapters a day, saying this,
Imagine the type of woman, or man, you would be if for the next ten years, you read through the Word of God ten times. It would be so sewn into your heart and soul that at every turn, you would know it in your bones.
Today we are looking at how none of us are separate, but we are all–collectively–followers of the Way. And how the people of the Way are not led by the flesh, but by the Spirit (Galatians 5). We’re about to head out to go caving, but for now, here are some photos for you to enjoy!
