Your children will play, craft and quest their way through the story of scripture as it unfolds in the steampunk world of Aethasia.

Reading Your Bible

The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Psalms 19:7-10; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12)

The surest way to God’s heart is through His Word. When you start there. you’ll never go wrong.

read-the-bible-through

The Bible sure is a big book, isn’t it? Really it’s 66 books all in one book. And if you try starting logically at page 1 and barreling straight through to the end , you’re likely to bog down somewhere in Leviticus or Numbers, not quite sure how to the cleansing ritual for leprosy is going to factor into your life. So start reading one of the foundational books of the Bible, like the Gospel of John or Paul’s letters to the Romans, or the books of Psalms and Proverbs. If you want to tackle more, you could set off on a journey through the New Testament, starting with Matthew. Read as much  as you can, but only as much as you can understand, not being afraid to read only a verse or two a day as long as you mingle it with prayer that God will use it to shine His truth into your life. As you read, you’ll begin picking up hints of what God’s nature is like, plus new understandings of the Bible’s overall message. Little by little, but quicker than you think, you’ll start developing a mind that thinks like God thinks, because you what God says.

“The Bible gives us heart and hope to make earth like heaven, and to make our hearts and homes a habitation for Christ.” – A.T. Robertson

Tomorrow’s Reading: Still, you’re likely to forget a lot of what you read if that’s all you do with the Scripture. To really let it sink in deep, you’re got to lock it away for a safekeeping.

Time to Make a Change: Why Me? Why Now?

Whether you’re just now coming to Christ, or just getting serious about it for the first time in a long time, you’ll find that God is always willing to join you on the starting line, but never content with letting you remain the way you are. Or the way you’ve been. Want to see some changes in your life? You’ve come to the right place.

Time for Change - Ornate Clock

How God Draws You to Himself

And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. (John 6:35) 

All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.  For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.  And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:37-40)

No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. (John 6:44)

… ” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.” (John 6:64-65)

… “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you. (Jeremiah 31:3)

You may have felt like you were the one doing all the chasing. But God’s been after you a long time.

Calling your conversation experience a decision for Christ doesn’t begin to convey the truth of the matter. Yes, you made a decision based on your own free will. Yes, you were perfectly free to make a different choice than you did. But look at the whole thing on balance (from God’s perspective) and suddenly your decision to follow Jesus looks a lot less like a bold move on your part and a lot more like a stunning victory on His part. He fashioned everything there is about you in His own mind. He set you in a particular time and place. He’s been carefully arranging people, situations, and events in your life, waving His arms in front of your face, pleading with you to look back, to see the cross, to know the love that paid every last dime on your escalating debt of sins, to experience more freedom and joy and peace and contentment than you ever thought possible. Looks like your hardest decision was trying to say no all this time.

“How could the initiative lie on my side? If Shakespeare & Hamlet could ever meet, it must be Shakespeare’s doing.” – C.S. Lewis

tomorrow-loading-shutterstock_151572575-Sukit-HanphayakTomorrow’s Reading: Before you can get too far down the road of Christian living, you must first take a good, hard look at yourself. And see how you got into this shape to begin with.
