Essential 100

E100Many things are considered essential in modern life.  In truth, however, the list of items one might not be able to do without varies from person to person.  For a Christian, the Word of God in Holy Scripture has been, and always will remain, essential.  Yet, truth be told, it is a rare person who finds it easy or entirely straightforward to read the Bible.  Of course, while many folk have good intentions, and, some can even quote chapter and verse, most of us, if we are honest, need a bit of help in reading the Bible.  That is where E100 (short for Essential 100) comes in handy.  This is a booklet (backed by Scripture Union and The Scottish Bible Society), which covers 100 essential passages – 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament.  Daily readings range from a few verses up to a couple of chapters and cover the major themes of God’s revelation to mankind, from Creation through to the Second Coming of Christ.

 

As well as suggested readings, each section contains some helpful background, useful questions and fuel for your prayers. It is a very practical booklet, which will help you understand and apply God’s Word more effectively every day.  Starting in January 2012, it is our aim to have at least 100 members of our church in Motherwell following through on this programme together.  If you would like to join us, please sign-up on one of the sheets at church, or send us an email.  Booklets cost £5 each if ordered in bulk through the church.  Alternatively, if you are a bit of a techie, you may care to download E100 to your smartphone or E-reader.  Either way, let’s get reading the Word.  It truly is the world’s most important book!

 

More information can be found on the E100 website at www.e100challenge.org.uk.

 

If you are interested in joining us on the journey through the Bible and are unable to attend worship with us or maybe miss a Sunday when it is discussed then you can still follow us by downloading the sermon notes and mp3 audios of the sermon below.
