Leaders love their Bible

Session 3 - Leaders know their Bible from Oxford Community Church on Vimeo.

 Speaker: Sanjay Mahtani, Assistant Pastor, Oxford Community Church

Reflect

After this session please pause and reflect on the following questions raised by the video:

  1. Is there anything you believe about God that can’t be found in scripture (or you're not sure where it is)? 
  2. Think further about which of 4 'TUMMY' steps most naturally to you? 
    Them - what did it to mean to them? (the original hearer)
    Us - what does it mean to us, today? (modern application)
    Me - what is God saying to me? (what is the Holy Spirit highlighting?)
    My - what am I going to do about it? (obedient response)

 

Follow-up
