A Blowtorch In The Darkness: Bible Study And Discipleship In The State Capitol

Amidst the craziness and cultural rot that’s been defining things around here for far too long, something supernaturally cool is going on.

Many things, actually, but one I want to take a sec to get you up to speed on is the Bible study and discipleship ministry that was launched just over two weeks ago in the Tennessee General Assembly at the start of this year’s Session.

After months of prepping and ramping up, I’ve been honored and thrilled to lead our first two weeks of studies in association with Capitol Ministries, whose mission of making disciples in the political realm is one that I think we can all agree is both awesome and much needed. I decided on an hour on Tuesday mornings from 7-8 a.m. for Assembly Members and an hour on Fridays from noon-1 p.m. for staff and anyone else on campus who has an appetite to dive deep into the Word.

With two weeks in the bag, things are off to a sweet start.

We started with a two week study titled The Gospel and the General Assembly. For each week I prepare a 2-4 sheet handout as a guide and summary of the subject matter we’re aiming to cover.

Here’s a sample from this week’s study (which was part 2 of 2):

If you’d like a .pdf or Word copy of this study guide, please let me know and I’ll be happy to get one your way.

This new adventure is very much a work in progress, so your prayers and suggestions are more than welcome.

If you’d like to help with this mission, you can use the normal means to support Fire Breathing Christian or, if you’d like to focus specifically on this Bible study and also take advantage of tax deductible status for your Capitol Ministries donation, you can go to the CapMin donation page, choose Tennessee, and make a tax-deductible donation there. Please be sure to select Tennessee if you’re aiming to support the Bible study and discipleship program in Nashville.

Thank you as always for your encouragement, prayers, and support!

Good things really are happening in Nashville and in capitols around the world, thanks to the work that God is doing through Capitol Ministries.

The King of kings is moving.

His Kingdom is advancing.

His Gospel-fueled Great Commission is transforming lives and culture…one grace-fueled act of repentance and obedience at a time.

Soli Deo gloria…and let’s roll!
