DDCommunity: Connect to God's Word to Fear the Lord Study

Connect to God’s Word to Fear the Lord in 2023

To grow in spiritual maturity, you must connect to God’s Word to learn to fear the Lord. Does that feel like a daunting task? DDCommunity invites you to join us as we read through the Bible in 2023. Together we will connect to God’s Word and learn how to fear the Lord appropriately.

How happy are those whose way is blameless, 
who walk according to the Lord’s instruction! 
Happy are those who keep his decrees 
and seek him with all their heart.

Psalm 119:1–2 CSB

How happy is everyone who fears the Lord,
who walks in his ways!

Psalm 128:1 CSB

You just read three verses that help you to know how to be happy. That sounds like an excellent goal for 2023! Connect to God’s Word and fear the Lord to be happy!

What’s the plan to connect to God’s Word to fear the Lord?

When the path is challenging, it’s great to join others for added support and encouragement. So, we’re inviting you to join us on the journey. We are offering two Zoom discussion groups for ladies. Beginning January 5, 2023, Thursday morning (10:00 – noon) and Thursday evening (7:00 – 9:00), groups will process the insights we glean throughout the week.

We will read the Holy Land Illustrated Bible and follow the One Year Chronological Bible reading plan in YouVersion. You may also opt to use the printable version. The chronological reading plan will lead us in the order of biblical events and the historical context in which they unfolded. Plus, this plan will also enable us to know our way around our Bibles more as we move from passage to passage.

2023 DDC Bible Study Challenge Focus

In 2023 we will investigate the foundational steps of spiritual maturity. The first step is to connect to God’s Word. The second step is to fear the Lord.

As we read through the Bible each day, we will be challenged to complete this sentence:

I should fear the Lord because…

When considering the reasons to fear the Lord, it is also helpful to think of the response from the standpoint of

  • God is . . .
  • I am . . .

We will understand what it means to fear the Lord as we connect to God’s Word. And we will discover ever-deepening reasons for an appropriate fear of the Lord as we study through the year. As we share our insights, we will all grow in spiritual maturity.

The fear of the Lord
is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and discipline.

Proverbs 1:7 CSB

Are you up for the challenge?

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.

Proverbs 31:30 CSB
