40 Days in the Word – Intro with Rick Warren

Live the Word of God like you’ve never lived it before

“How many times do members of your church doubt God’s Word, fall prey to others who attack its reliability or not live out its content?  Too many of God’s people don’t know God’s Word, don’t really believe God’s Word or don’t ‘do’ God’s Word. Forty Days in the Word will transform your people from ‘hearers’ to ‘doers.’”

– Rick Warren

Join Rick Warren on a journey of 40 Days in the Word, a journey of eternal significance as you and your church will learn how to be not only a “hearer” of the Word, but also a “doer” of God’s Word.

40 Days in the Word is a church wide weekly study of six principles of the Word of God. You and your church will explore the authenticity, reliability, power, comfort, interpretation and doing of God’s Word. This eight week journey, led by Rick Warren, will encourage spiritual growth in every member of your church.

Pronounce it! The ultimate purpose of the Bible is not to inform us, it is to transform us. God doesn’t want us to just be hearers of the Word, He wants us to be doers of the Word – living gospels – sharing the good news of Jesus Christ not only in our words, but in our lives.

Picture it! Every person in the world has exactly the same amount of time each week: 168 hours. You don’t have time for everything, you have to make time for things that really count!

Probe it! Bible study without application is dangerous. Get the Probe It! method of Bible meditation!

Paraphrase it! Ultimately, you want to be able to explain the entire verse or passage in your own words. If you can’t put it in your own words, then you don’t truly understand what it is saying.

Personalize it! and Pray it! The Word of God is His love letter to you. And He wants you to open it and experience the joy of getting to know Him through His Word.

Principles of Bible interpretation The Bible is a spiritual book that can only be truly understood by people who are spiritually alive through Jesus Christ.

Why is 40 Days in the Word relevant?

No other habit can do more to transform your life and make you more like Jesus than to study and act upon God’s Word. To be a healthy disciple of Jesus, feeding on God’s Word must be your first priority. Jesus called it “abiding.” He said, “If you abide in My Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine” (John 8:31 NASB).

By the end of our forty days together, our goal is to help you . . .

  • Love the Word of God like you’ve never loved it before
  • Learn the Word of God like you’ve never learned it before
  • Live the Word of God like you’ve never lived it before

Geagte Predikant,

Dit is vir Walk Thru the Bible ‘n voorreg om reeds jare lank ons seminare in Afrikaans te vertaal. Dosyne Afrikaanse gemeentes gebruik ons “church campaigns” met uitstekende resultate. Tipiese 40 dae programme word gelei deur predikante wat die boodskappe hulle eie maak en in hul eie taal predik.

Ons het gewoonlik ook vertaalde PowerPoint en gemeente notas vir Sondae. Baie van die jeug en kleuter materiaal is gewoonlik ook vertaal in Afrikaans. Hierdie spesifieke vertalingsproses is tans aan die gang met 40 Days in the Word.
Baie 40 dae programme het dan ook die kleingroep handleiding in Afrikaans as opsie nadat ons eerste groep gemeentes dit moontlik in Engels gedoen het. Die Engelse video deur n Rick Warren of ‘n Chip Ingram (Romeine 12) word gemaklik beleef deur oorgrote lidmate, omdat hulle wel gesprek voer in Afrikaans.
U kan ons help om die Afrikaanse boekies vinniger te druk deur ons kantoor te laat weet dat u gemeente graag deel van die eerste Afrikaanse oplaag wil bestel. Dit help met kostes, beplanning en bespoedig alles as dit vir u belangrik is om wel die gids ook in Afrikaans beskikbaar te he.
Ons is lief vir Afrikaans – en tog bly ons mense ken vandag se “Grieks” en kan soos die kerk in Handelinge ‘n “tweede taal” lees. Weet ook dat die Engels ook lidmate skool om hul geloof ook na andertaliges makliker uit te dra.
