Today we are continuing our mini-series of resources help engage people in missions, discipleship, etc. On the docket: An evangelistic Bible study!
But first: let’s link back to some of the other resources we’ve highlighted so far:
- The Message Magazine highlights work ABWE is doing around the world through articles, photos, and more.
- The Missions Podcast gives a “voice” to ABWE’s missions work through interviews and conversations with missionaries, Pastors, and others engaged in go-ing and sending.
- Risen Motherhood provides Gospel hope to mamas (and Dad Tired does the same for fathers!).
Today, though, we want to highlight a resource called The Story of Hope.
The Story of Hope is an evangelistic Bible study produced by Good Soil (an evangelism and discipleship-focused ministry). Through chronological Bible stories that can be expanded or condensed as needed, individuals grow to understand the Gospel in a way that highlights how Old Testament stories build on one another to introduce Jesus of Nazareth as the one and only Lord and Savior. And even with believers, this study is a great way to introduce the Big Story of the Bible in a way that is easily understood.
It seems that too often, we see the Bible as a collection of random stories. But really, Scripture is a whole narrative that outlines God’s plan for redemption and His purposes. The Story of Hope outlines that really well.
I’m working my way through The Story of Hope with an individual right now. We meet on a weekly basis, read the Bible passages together, and discuss their significance. I am loving it so far (both the study and the relationship that is growing as a result!).
If you are looking for an easy-to-use tool to help supplement some of your evangelism and discipleship efforts, we’d encourage you to check this one out!
