3. Scripture (Luke 24:13-35)
Michael Bouterse, local director of Thrive Harbor, wraps up Thrive's three-part Foundations series by looking at one final ingredient for growth in Christ—the Bible. Reading Scripture for facts alone will make you into a tadpole Christian: all head and nothing else. But if you read the Bible and allow it to show you your heart, to show you God's character, to sit in judgment over you (rather than you over it!), and to demand that you obey what it says, it will turn your world upside-down in the best possible way. Passages cited in this message include Luke 24:13-35; Psalm 119:127; Jeremiah 20:9; 15:16; Hebrews 4:12; Proverbs 14:12; Isaiah 66:2; and James 1:22-24.
