Missional Mondays 3

These are my notes from my Monday lunchtime study – “Missional Mondays”.

What is the point of the Bible?  What is the Bible all about?

Read: Revelation 21:1-8; 22:1-6

What does this teach us about what God is doing?

God is on a mission

Restoring/reconciling all things to himself

The Bible is not just a random collection of laws, stories, promises etc.

It has a main point and it has a goal

What is goal of the Bible?

Luke 24:25-27, (see John 5:39, 2 Corinthians 1:20)

Luke 24:45-49

As God is a missionary God so the Bible is a missionary book.

It is a book about Jesus.

The knowledge of Jesus must lead to being on mission with God (Luke 24:45-48)

“Scripture is appropriately read and interpreted as the Spirit-empowered testimony that equips God’s people for their mission…” Guder px

2 Tim 3:16-17 – Purpose of Scripture is to equip people for every good work – what is that? Being on mission with God – missional.

Think about it:

How does this change the way we read the Bible?  What is the goal of the Bible being taught? knowledge or mission?

Knowledge and passion for mission.

When we attend church, how does this change how we listen to, discuss and meditate on the word preached?

If we have not be helped, encourage, challenged to be missional in all our living has the word of God been correctly preached?
