DAILY BIBLE STUDY
At CPC, we're going to study the Bible together, day by day, starting with the book of Philippians.
This video is an explanation of how this will work.
You'll need a Bible, pen, and notebook.
For now, make your plan: when and where will you do you Bible study daily. This will not be a Bible study where I tell you what the Bible says...instead, YOU DO THE WORK daily of digging in to scripture, and then we review the text together afterwords. My hope is that this will be habit forming for you and bring peace and comfort at a time when we most need it.
Explains How this plan will work (details below)
Step 1. Read your section. For tomorrow, read Phil 1:1-11.
Step 2. Make notes in your Bible of anything you found interesting, encouraging, or confusing. Also, mark key words or phrases that keep repeating or seem important to the passage.
Step 3: Answer these 6 questions in your notebook:
1. Highlights: What types of things did you mark in your bible? This is very general...what are some of the things that simply jumped out to you 2. Summary: try to summarize the passage in your own words...using 2-3 sentences.
3. God's nature: What does this passage tell us about God?
4. Encouragement: How does this passage encourage you?
5. Challenge: How does this passage challenge you?
6. Response: What can you do practically in response to this passage?

Some thoughts about importance of prayer in Bible study, as well as my notes and thoughts about this section. Wow! If there is a section that is relevant for us as Christians right now, in the midst of unprecedented disruption, this is it. "To live is Christ. To die is gain." If you find encouragement from this passage, feel free to share on the contact form on this page.
Christ humbled himself to exalt us. Now we have the privilege and responsibility to humble ourselves in order to exalt Christ as we serve others. In this video, I share my notes and answers to questions based on this section. As always, please feel free to share comments or questions.
Paul is an amazing writer! He has so much to say...sometimes it's difficult to find the main idea of each section, paragraph (or even each sentence). Today we talk about how to determine the main ideas, and how to separate them from secondary or subordinate ideas. Also, we talk about how "working out your salvation with fear and trembling" is an idea rooted in grace, not legalism. Comments or questions? Include them below.
Is Jesus your greatest treasure? Do you find joy in him? These questions and more are addressed in this Day 8 video. Also, we talk about the importance of scripture memory and how to use commentaries. Questions or comments, please mark below
