Does God’s Word excite you?
If your answer to this question is “yes” I hope that you will find this site a place where you can learn more about God’s Word and that it will drive you to dig deeper into Scripture.
Welcome to Diggin’ in the Word! My purpose, goal, and prayer is to present theologically sound lessons from God’s Word. These lessons will dig into the meaning and present practical applications for your life. God’s Word is meant to teach us and then to be put into practice. If you are not applying what you read you are doing nothing more than taking a history lesson. My prayer is that we are not historians, but followers of the risen Lord, Jesus Christ.
The latest lesson will always be found by clicking on the “Diggin’ in the Word” header”. Older lessons can be found in the archive section. I plan on grouping them in by topic or book and then individual lessons can be found within these subsections. My desire is to complete one lesson per week. Although these lessons are not intended as “sermons” they could be taken and expanded upon as a sermon outline or used as-is for small group Bible studies.
As noted above the lessons will either follow a topic or verse by verse from books of the Bible. I personally prefer the verse by verse method as it prevents us from skipping over those delicate or controversial issues. I won’t soften what is contained within Scripture to be politically correct. God’s Word is infallible and inerrant and those who teach it should not shy away from its truth. Scripture has a clear warning regarding teaching the Word in James 3:1, “Not many should become teacher, my brothers, knowing that we will receive a stricter judgment” (HCSB) You may not agree with everything I write. I challenge you to dig into the lessons I post and learn more yourself. Every pastor, elder, or teacher of the Word should expect those that hear or read their lessons will check on whether their teaching is theologically and doctrinally sound or not.
