For over a year now we have been working our way through the Gospel according to Dr. Luke at Calvary Community Church (we will cover Luke 7:36-50 on Sunday April 14). The Gospel Coalition has just pointed out a wonderful resource for studying this amazing story found in the Sacred Writings. I'm really excited for how this will serve anyone interested in walking closely with Jesus, but particularly those in our church doing so each and every Sunday.
May God use this resource to help you know Jesus. See the details below:
The Good Book Company's Explore app features devotionals for your mobile device so you can study God's Word wherever you are and whenever you want. Each study will refresh and encourage your walk with the Lord as it points you to his Word.
Explore doesn't simply tell you about a passage of Scripture—it takes you into the passage, through a mixture of questions about the text, short summaries, and helpful links to other parts of the Bible. And then it helps you press the passage into your own life, through application and prayer pointers.
It's ideal for anyone wanting to continue, add to, or establish a good habit of reading the Bible day by day. Each devotional is suited for new Christians and more mature believers, and comes with the passage and any cross-references attached, using the ESV translation.
Users can either choose dated material, which works through the whole Bible in around seven years, or download devotionals on a particular book of the Bible. Contributors include Timothy Keller, Mark Dever, Tim Chester, Ray Ortlund, Christopher Ash, Mike McKinley, and Stephen Witmer.
The Explore series on the Gospel of Luke, written by The Good Book Company's senior editor Carl Laferton, comprises 105 studies. Till the end of June, you can download the first 35 for free, and be thrilled, for the first or thousandth time, by the Lord Jesus and his life, love, words and deeds.
To access your 35 free devotionals, click here to download the Explore app. Then in the "Read" section, select "TGC: Luke 1-9."
As a taster, you can access pdfs of the first three studies here.
