A wise man once said that we can’t do anything for God if we don’t know God or are not with God. The investment in our relationship with the God of the universe is the most worthwhile investment we can make. Deuteronomy 6 tells us, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” In order for us to love God, we must know God. The author knew that in order to teach or talk about the commandments of God, we must first place them in our hearts and know them for ourselves. Therefore, this plan is laid out to help be intentional with this pursuit of knowing God through His word.
We are thankful that you are taking this step as you make your relationship with God a priority. We understand this pursuit requires a daily sacrifice and by definition, sacrifices are difficult; yet, we sacrifice because we believe the benefit outweighs the cost. We believe that sacrificing your time, energy, and sleep will be well worth the reward that follows. This commitment will take on average 30 minutes a day, six days a week. We have intentionally built in a day to reflect or catch-up if you’re behind and a day of rest on day seven. This helps us reflect the rhythm God modeled for us in His creation and it allows for some flexibility if you happen to miss a day.
Again, we can’t tell you how excited we are to walk this journey with you and see the fruit God produces in you through His word and His Spirit. As you jump in we expect that you will have questions about each step of the journey; please know that our leaders and staff at CBC are eager to help you. Let us know how God uses this time to grow you! We can’t wait to hear.
