Hello Sparrow’s Song Family,
How are you? I am so glad that you are still on this journey to go deeper in the Word of God. Wherever you are in your journey, you are in the right place and I am here with you!
July is coming in just as June did, full of uncertainties and unknowns. We are bombarded with opinions from all sides and sometimes struggle with what we hear. In times like these, people are hungry for truth. Believers know that in these times we need to turn to God to be anchored in the truth. God’s Word is a source of truth that we can look to time and time again, especially in times like these.
As we encounter God’s Word this month, let’s lean into the truth presented there. Let’s also share the truth of God’s Word with those around us. So many people are searching for hope right now, and we know that real hope can only be found in Jesus.
This month we are writing through part 2 of 2 Corinthians—chapters 9-13. Paul continues this letter to the Corinthian church, encouraging them to live generous lives, and give cheerfully. Paul encourages believers to know and believe that God’s grace is enough to carry us through every trial and that our weaknesses are an opportunity for God’s strength to be seen in us.
Key verses in 2 Corinthians, chapters 9-13:
-The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
-He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. 2 Corinthians 9:10
-But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
-For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
Remember, the scripture writing guide is just that, a guide. You may choose to use whatever passages you want (let the Lord lead you). If you would like to continue Writing the Word with themes, check out July 2019’s guide below.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14
