Living Like Jesus - Bible Reading Plan
13 September – 28 November 2021
What's it all about?
Jesus came that we might have abundant life. That's our Promised Land and we can enter into it through trusting our Father and following the example set by Jesus, the Son. We enter into life by copying Jesus, doing and saying the kinds of things Jesus did and said, by choosing to live like children of God. Of course, we're not God and Jesus is. So we may not get a booming voice from heaven saying, "You are my beloved Son", but we get the inner voice of the Spirit helping us cry out, "Abba, Father". We don't get a glorious transfiguration (not till the final Day), but we do get to be transformed from one degree of glory to another as we choose to humble ourselves and lay down our lives for others. Incredibly, we don't just get to do the kinds of things Jesus did, but He promised us we would do greater things if we trusted Him. So, if we really want to bring the life of Jesus wherever we are, we've got to live like Jesus ... and this series will help us do just that, using readings from the Gospel of Mark.
In addition to our weekly readings there will be a themed Sunday talk where together, we will be taking a deeper look at how we can live like Jesus.
When is this happening?
‘Living Like Jesus’ begins on Monday 13 September and will finish on Sunday 28 November. Throughout the series, a weekly email* will be sent out early on a Monday morning with the week’s Bible readings, each linked to the day’s Scripture.
You can download a copy of our daily bible reading booklet here. Each week's readings will form the basis of most of the talks on the upcoming Sunday mornings.
