During the month of August we're going to jump around a bit. We'll consider the familiar story of Jonah and how it foreshadows the coming redemptive work of Christ for all who repent and believe. We'll study Philippians as we kick off our new series 'Marked by Joy'. And we'll also be encouraged and exhorted by Jesus' words to his followers in the book of John, and wrap up the month with the glorious gospel discourse found in Romans chapters 5-8.

A simple outline for reading the various passages might go something like this:

  • Pray that God will open you up to what his Word has to say.
  • Read the text:
    What does the text say?
    What does it mean?
    Whatโ€™s grabbing your heart or attention?
    What will you keep chewing on or processing for the rest of the day?
  • Pray for your day and bring specific requests before the Lord.
