Daily Bible Study is a great companion to the quarterly Adult Bible Studies or as a stand-alone study for those wanting to study the Bible daily. It is presented in quarterly segments. Bible-based and Christ-focused, it coordinates with the lesson themes of Adult Bible Studies. Each daily reading includes a one-page Bible study for each of the quarters along with introductory reflection questions and commentary on the daily Scripture passage, life application and a concluding prayer.

Theme: Transformation
This summer, Daily Bible Study presents a series of readings supporting the theme “Transform.” As Christ’s followers, we are gifted with Christ’s peace and called to be peacemakers. The readings in this unit explore how God’s Spirit endows, equips, and empowers us to reach out to others. Readings come from both Old and New Testament texts. These daily readings, which prepare us for the 13 lessons in Adult Bible Studies, are written by Sue Mink, Michelle Morris, and Stan Purdum.

Unit 1
The Fruit of the Spirit
Paul’s familiar metaphor of fruit teaches us that the Holy Spirit endows us with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22–23) in order to empower us to reach out to others through acts of mission and peacemaking. The lessons in this unit help us better understand how these gifts transform us and how we can use them in transforming the world.
Scriptures: Acts 2:1-4, 17-21, 33, 38-39 | 1 Corinthians 2:10-16 | Galatians 5:13-21 | Galatians 5:22-26
Spiritual Practice: Study

Unit 2
The Work of the Church
Once we better understand how to use the gifts the Holy Spirit gives us, we can more readily join with others in the church to use these gifts in mission and ministry to transform our world. These lessons can equip us for this purpose. Like the early believers we read about in the Book of Acts, we discover that the Spirit goes ahead of us, preparing the way for us, while also walking beside us and living within us.
Scriptures: Acts 4:23-31 | Acts 8:26-39 | Acts 11:1-18 | Acts 15:1-21 | Acts 16:25-34
Spiritual Practice: Guidance | Spiritual Direction

Unit 3
The Pursuit of the People
While acts of violence dominate our news reports, we know from Scripture that violence is not God’s plan. God’s intent is for us to reestablish shalom, the Hebrew word for “peace” that means “a shared well-being and abundance.” The lessons in this unit challenge us to transform our world by cultivating shalom.
Scriptures: 1 Chronicles 22:6-10, 17-19 | Matthew 5:9, 38-48 | Ephesians 2:11-22 | Matthew 26:47-56
Spiritual Practice: Forgiveness
