We often talk about personal topics or current events before our Bible Study begins. Often, by the time we finish reading the scripture for that particular day, we find that it answers questions or confusion about the previous topics discussed. The purpose of reading the Bible is not to simply read it, but to solve the problems we face every day and to seek God's guidance in our daily lives. I often say that after attending a Bible study if the Bible didn’t speak to you and you don’t leave changed by the Word of God, you didn’t receive the guidance or revelation that you should have. Basically the Bible study was a failure because “The Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (NIV, Hebrews 4:12). The Holy Spirit can illuminate the Word of God as we read the Bible. He can also point the way and illuminate the path ahead of us. The Bible tells us that “Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (NIV, Psalm 119:105). It also says that “The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” (NIV, Psalm 119:130). Therefore, whether we are reading the Bible by ourselves or we are the ones leading the Bible Study to help others understand it, we must always remember one principle, which is to pray to God. God will surely give us light, illuminate our hearts, and lead us on straight paths. We are a group of Chinese Christians living in the United States. We are very concerned about the China-US trade war. Because of our special status and position, we are eagerly hoping that both China and the United States will have a bright future together. On the one hand, of course, we hope that China will have bright prospects because we are from China and our loved ones are still there. On the other hand, we also hope that the United States has a bright prospect for the future, because we and our children live in the United States. As Christians living in the United States, it’s normal for us to be very worried about the current status of the country. We understand that there is a gradual decline of Christianity in the United States, the lack of attendance in churches, and people not having much enthusiastic faith. The statement that God is judging or will judge America causes people to be very upset. READ MORE:
