30 Days to Understanding the Bible – The Church Era
The Church Era is our topic in today’s video lesson. We are taking our lesson from our book titled “30 Days to Understanding the Bible” by Max Anders.
Max Anders discusses something many of us are familiar with – church, but more importantly, the Church era.
In this session, we will look at the following subjects:
- Universal Church
- Local Church
“The church is to be the physical representation of Christ on earth now that He has returned to heaven. What Christ did, we are to do. What Christ said, we are to say. The message Christ proclaimed, we are to proclaim, and the character Christ manifested, we are to manifest.”
Church changed me.
In 1999, a dear friend invited me to church. I grew up in the Catholic faith. My friend grew up as a Southern Baptist. I accepted her invitation to attend her church one Sunday, and my life has never been the same. I look back at my life now and wonder where I would be had I rejected her invitation. How different would life be for my family? What would I be doing, and what would my passion be?
I found my passion.
For me, my passion for Jesus Christ continues to grow each year. Attending and participating in the local church contributes to my spiritual growth and walk with Jesus. I learned a long time ago I cannot grow by myself. I need others who contribute to that spiritual growth. Seasoned saints with years of wisdom and hearts for Christ aid in my daily walk with Jesus. Their desire has become my desire to see others find Christ as I did continues to grow.
Please don’t discount the local church because you never know how God can change your life for the glory of His kingdom.
Let’s dive into the Church era.
Join me as we embark on a journey through the Bible. Our guidebook, 30 Days to Understanding the Bible, will take you on an educational journey to help make the Bible come alive. We will learn the basics of how the Bible is set up and the different eras. We will talk about the leading figures and geography. This is a basic overview of the Bible as we journey through Max Anders’s book, “30 Days to understanding the Bible.”
