The Growth Journal is a tool designed to help people grow in grace by reading the Bible in prayerful community. Maybe you’re interested in reading the Bible because you just began following Jesus. Maybe you grew up in the church but never read the Bible for yourself. You might even be someone still trying to figure out what you believe, but someone invited you to read with them. Wherever you find yourself, we pray this tool will help you grow in grace (2 Peter 3:18).
Why Read the Bible?
We live in a world constantly attacking us with messages: TV commercials, social media, text messages, and emails. Many of these are negative or false, so we’re often left hopeless or foolish. Yet the Bible is God’s trustworthy message of hope. If you want to hear from God, you must go to the Bible. If you want to know more of who God is, you must go to the Bible. No other book contains the inspired words of God. No other book contains such a life-changing message of God’s grace.
Powerful Life Change
Most people want to change. If we’re honest, we all struggle with impatience, worry, pride, or regret. However, many of us don’t know how to change. How does true change even happen? God tells us it comes through his “means of grace.” The primary means, or tools, of grace that God uses to make us more like him are prayer, the Bible, and community. The Growth Journal brings these three together for powerful life change. You’ll read the Bible and pray in the context of community.
