Delight in God’s Word

Welcome to “Delight in God’s Word.”   It is our hope that this section of our website will connect you with resources designed to aid your pursuit of delight in God through his Word.  If you would like to know more about why this page and the others connected to it have been created, additional details are provided at Delight in God’s Word: A Brief Explanation.

Resources have been collected and arranged in various categories.  Descriptions of these groupings and links to the page for each grouping are provided below.  Please be aware that some of the resources are provided by us or others at no charge (designated by “[Free]” at the end of the description), while some resources must be purchased through a publisher or distributor (designated by “[$]” at the end of the description).  We are not selling nor do we receive any financial benefit from the purchase of for-sale materials linked herein.  Our only purpose in providing these links is to help connect you with useful, Christ-centered resources.

Personal Bible Reading

As Augustine heard the child crying, so the call comes to each of us “Take up and read.  Take up and read.”  The reading plans and other resources provided here have been designed to help you provide structure to your regular personal Bible reading.

Scripture Memorization

The psalmist declared to the Lord, “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you” (Ps 119:11).  These memorization materials have been prepared to help you treasure God above all else and to wage war against temptation and sin.

One-to-One and Small Group Study

There is tremendous benefit to regular, personal Bible reading.  There is also great benefit in reading and studying God’s Word with one or more fellow believers.  Paul commanded the saints at Ephesus, “… let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another” (Eph 4:25), and the writer to the Hebrews challenged his recipients to “exhort one another every day, as long as it is called ‘today,’ that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” (Heb 3:13).  These resources offer opportunities for us to speak God’s Word with grace to one another as we read and study together.

Family Worship

Parents (especially fathers), God has given you the responsibility to bring up your children “in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph 6:4).  This type of child-rearing goes far beyond any single activity or practice.  Nevertheless, many faithful parents over multitudes of generations have found great profit in a regular time of family worship.  Check out these resources for ideas as well as step-by-step guides for family worship.

Corporate Worship

Gathering together regularly with a community of believers who have committed themselves to one another is an integral part of the Christian life.  No other practice can replicate or replace the experience of regular corporate worship.  However, from time to time illness, travel, or other life circumstances prevents us from attending corporate worship.  Early each week (typically sometime Monday), audio recordings of the sermons from our Sunday services are posted to the website.  You can also subscribe to the sermon audio (see Subscribe to Audio).
