Thirty-Some Days in John 15, Day 34: Real Life

For the last day of our study of John 15, we’re going to spend some time meditating on the passage and praying over it. We want to make sure we are “doers of the Word and not hearers [or students] only.” No matter how many hours we manage to spend in God’s Word each week, if we study with no intention of doing what the Word says, we’ve missed the […]

Thirty-Some Days in John 15, Day 33: Personalize

We could study so much more in this fifteenth chapter of John, but our study is coming to a close. It’s time to look back at what we’ve learned, and to look forward to how we will let these words of Scripture change us. Assignment: Pray, thanking God for what He has taught you through His Word. Ask Him to help you remember and be changed by Jesus’ words. Then take […]

Thirty-Some Days in John 15, Day 32: The Promised Helper

We’ve reached the last two verses of John 15. It’s time to pull our chart from Day 6 out to finish it. Assignment: Pray for the Holy Spirit’s continued guidance, as He bears witness of Jesus through the Word. Then open your notebook to the pages you created back on Day 6. You should have two pairs of pages that are divided into columns labeled Me, Jesus, Father, and Holy Spirit. Starting […]

Thirty-Some Days in John 15, Day 30: Catch Up and Optional Lesson

This is our last official catch-up day for this study, but that doesn’t mean most of us won’t keep working to finish the study on our own timetable. All the lessons for the study will be posted for at least another month, and can be easily accessed by clicking “John 15 Study” in the upper menu bar on your computer screen, or clicking the lines in upper left-hand corner of […]

Thirty-Some Days in John 15, Day 24: Abiding in His Love

Jesus loves us like His Father loves Him — with a love that has no beginning, that has existed before the world was created, with a love that has no end, from which we can never be separated, with a love that has no limits. He has called us to abide in that love — to remain in it, to stay in it. If we keep His commandments, He says, we will abide in […]

Thirty-Some Days in John 15, Day 23: Catch Up and Optional Lesson

These catch up days seem to come around awfully fast! Use this day to work on previous lessons, work on memorizing all or part of the chapter, and take the time to listen to another collection of songs related to our study — this time on loving one another. (Feel free to add other relevant songs in the comments.) For an optional lesson, I heartily recommend checking out another study […]

Thirty Days in John 15, Day 12: Fruit, Part 2

Here we are on Day 12, and we’re still steeping ourselves in the first few verses of this amazing chapter. My plan has been to focus mostly on the first half of the chapter, but I’m starting to wonder if this is going to turn into a 45-day study! We’ll see! If the Father is glorified when we bear much fruit, and if fruit is evidence of our discipleship, we […]

Thirty (One) Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 31: Move Into His Shelter

I’m always a bit sad when we reach the last day of our study. It’s such a blessing to study with you all (but it will be nice to sleep at night again :-)). Today we’re going to ask the Lord to sink this psalm deep into our hearts where it will change the way we think, the way we respond to troubles, the way we turn away from our worries […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 30: Paraphrase

  We’ve done a bunch of observing, and quite a bit of looking at word meanings and at commentaries and cross-references. Does Psalm 91 mean more to you now than it did four weeks ago (or however long you decide to take finishing up the study 🙂 )? We’re ready to do some reviewing, some praying, and some applying what we’ve learned to our lives. Assignment: Pray. Ask the Lord to […]

Thirty Days in Psalm 91 for Busy Mamas, Day 29: God Speaks

Today we’re going to wrap up our study of the text, and then we’ll spend a couple more days reviewing and thinking about how to apply what we’ve been learning. (Our 30-day study is going to sneak a day or two past thirty days. 🙂 ) Let’s take a closer look at two more words and a whole lot of promises as the psalmist brings his song to a close. […]
