Bible study is one of the ways that we tune our spiritual ears to God's frequency of love, peace and wisdom. As we experience God's written word, it opens us up to receive God's spoken word! As with the Israelites in Exodus 20:19–22, God does desire to verbally express Himself to us, but due to our lack of spiritual maturity, He writes things down to spark our spiritual maturation and bring us to a place where we can hear his voice (Exodus 24:12, 1 Samuel 3:9).
We are to study God's word as the people of Berea studied:
"And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth." (Acts 17:11)
Campus Ministries offers two main options for you to participate in open-minded Bible Study. Both our Freshly Brewed and The Light Bearers ministries seek to spark your personal eagerness to study God's word.
