SOLID FOOD Study Schedule
Paul’s opening salvo is that God is large and in charge, working all circumstances out in accordance with his will. God’s sovereignty is the sun around which all truth orbits. It’s the centre of gravity that gives us balance. It is the huge view of God providing us with resources to change from the inside out.
Sun April 6 – Sat April 12 Sovereign Father – Sovereign over all
Sun April 13 – Sat April 19 Sovereign Father – Sovereign over Salvation
Sun April 20 – Sat April 26 Sovereign Father – Sovereignty and Church Vibe
Flowing directly from God’s Sovereignty is the doctrine of Grace, the second great doctrine of the Reformed tradition. Grace is what happens when you apply God’s Sovereignty to salvation. Understanding the gospel of grace is not only how we get saved, but also the ongoing power to live saved. When you ‘get grace’, you get sucked into a vortex of joy, peace, energy and power.
Sun April 27 – Sat May 3 Grace Giving Son – Grace and Law
Sun May 4 – Sat May 10 Grace Giving Son – Grace, Hard Work and Holiness
Sun May 11 – Sat May 17 Grace Giving Son – Grace and Church Vibe
Spirit power is God’s promise to you guarantying your salvation (Eph1:13) and giving you the goods to live big for God. Understanding God’s empowering Spirit will also show how a church can enjoy a strong sense of God’s presence and power (Eph 2:22). Just Word and you dry up. Just Spirit and you blow up. Word and Spirit you grow up.
Sun May 18 – Sat May 24 Empowering Spirit – Community of the Spirit
Sun May 25 – Sat May 31 Empowering Spirit – Individuals of the Spirit
Sun June 1 – Sat June 7 Empowering Spirit – Gifts of the Spirit
Life can be tough and confusing – tsunami’s, earthquakes, dread disease, car crashes, bereavements, relational traumas, economic recession, and so it goes on. I’ve had a pretty wild last 9 months myself with an unexpected and unpleasant run in with cancer and chemotherapy. When life goes pear-shaped a couple of questions always spring to mind namely, ‘Why do bad things happen?’ and, ‘How can a good God let this kind of stuff go on?’. This series will try to give some answers to these questions to help fortify us when we hit the storms of life.
Sun June 8 – Sat June 14 – Bad things and a good God
Sun June 15 – Sat June 21 – Bad things and good health
Sun June 22 – Sat June 28 – Bad things and a good theology
Sun June 29 – Sat July 5 – Bad things and good outcomes
