…train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present and also for the life to come.1 Timothy 4:7b-8
That’s one of our very favorite verses here at The Ruffled Mango – and every single Bible study or Bible study tool that we create happens because we believe this verse is so incredibly important. 💙
There are a lot of Christians who don’t know all that much about God and Jesus and the Bible. They don’t ever become a person “after God’s own heart” like David was – because they don’t ever really seek Him. Sunday morning services and maybe some Wednesday night Bible classes (if they’re not busy elsewhere) are all they’re willing to give. It seems too difficult or too boring or too confusing to study the Bible on their own.
Even those of us who WANT to study the Bible often find ourselves caught up in everything else besides quiet time in God’s Word.
Is that what God had in mind?
We know that it’s not! It’s a far cry from what Jesus wants for us – an abundant life in Him is worlds apart from the fleeting distractions that the devil offers, which we know will only kill, steal from, and destroy us. (John 10:10)
It’s up to us, though, to create a plan for consistent Bible study. And that’s what The Obstacle Course is all about – navigating the hurdles to consistent Bible study.
Many of you asked us for this exact topic and we are excited to offer it you now! Interested to find out more? There are LOTS more details and how to sign up here…
We can’t wait to see YOU on the inside! 😄
