Bible Studies For Life...Where The Bible Meets Your Life!

By Ronnie Floyd

There is nothing in this world more important than knowing how God’s Word applies to our lives. The living, vibrant Word of God transforms, deepens, develops and strengthens us for the Master’s service. It illuminates the thoughts and intents of our hearts so we might walk in God’s ways at all times. It lights our path, helps us to walk straight, and prevents us from stumbling. It is as sweet as honey to our lips.

This is why I am excited to share about a new responsibility I have taken on related to a Bible study series called, Bible Studies for Life. In 2012, LifeWay Christian Resources was looking for an opportunity to involve church leaders in developing curriculum. They asked me, a pastor, to take on the role of General Editor and to assemble an advisory council of church leaders to frame out a study that would be a response to a great need within churches today. It was a privilege to assemble 13 men and women in ministry, for whom I have tremendous respect, to explore how a Bible study could provide for the spiritual needs of today’s men, women, boys and girls. The result is the new Bible Studies for Life, a study created by churches for churches that meets people right where they are in life with biblical truth. LifeWay will be releasing studies for all ages for use in Fall 2013. 

Our desire through this study is to develop people who know Christ and His gracious work, who are contributing servants in the community of faith, and who can effectively engage culture without losing distinction.
