Dear India Christian Fellowship (ICF) Friends,
Can you find one of Jesus's name in the A to Z just above these lines? But first, lets talk about abecedarians. An "abecedarian" is someone learning the fundamentals of a topic, like A B C D. Like everything in life, we start from the basics. Whether its learning to walk, talk, read or write it all begins with basic steps made in the right direction.
Now it would help for us Christians to remember that the Bible testifies about the Lord Jesus Christ from the first book Genesis to the very last, Revelation. The NLT translation puts our Lord Jesus's remarkable words succinctly, "You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to Me!" (John 5:39). When the Holy Spirit inspired the authors of the Bible, He ensured that Jesus was emblazoned in Scripture as "the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End" (Rev 22:13). Indeed He is our A to Z and He is depicted right there in the title above!
Friends on that note, I am excited to announce that this month (and the next) Suresh Lenin will lead us on a survey and study of the book of Revelation. He has led an inductive Bible study in Revelation for a group of 5-10 families for the past 3.5 consecutive years. His exhaustive study notes on the book of Revelation are available here - I strongly encourage you to take a look. I personally have been tremendously blessed by his teaching and study.
We will have catered dinner (a freewill offering will be taken to defray food costs) but you are welcome to bring soda/salad/dessert.
