Hello! This is the second-to-last week of video and the last week of homework. This week you studied what it means to abide in Christ. I hope you loved the hope of abiding in Jesus. What a privilege we have to remain close to Him! I can’t wait to see your answers to today’s questions. This week, you will learn how to live out the truths we’ve been studying.
Here’s how this will work (This is the same every week, so feel free to skip this part if you’ve got it down already.): Each week, you’ll come here and watch the video with Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams. They invite you into study with them and offer new insight into God’s Word. Each video will last about 10 minutes (give or take a few). Once you watch the video, we have some questions for you to answer in your group or in the comments section of the post or on our Open Your Bible Facebook group (or all three!). We want this to be available to those who are studying together and those going solo. Some of the questions ask you to get to know your fellow Bible study participants and we hope the interactions you have will be both challenging and encouraging. Each week at the end of the video, Raechel and Amanda will let you know the homework assignment for the next week. You can do the homework in the Open Your Bible study book. We highly recommend you getting a copy for this study, since that is where most of the studying will take place! You can get a copy at your local LifeWay Store or by clicking here (international friends, click here for options for international shipping). That’s it! The study will be seven weeks long (including this little introduction week).
If you can’t participate right now, or if you miss a week, don’t worry. We will leave these posts up for you to do when you’re ready! You can find all the older ones using our Online Bible Studies tab at the top of the blog. Just click on it and then the Open Your Bible study.
A note about the Bible study videos: Open Your Bible has optional video downloads available for purchase online (for group or individual use). These videos are not the same as the free videos available here on the blog. The videos for purchase are more like teaching videos and dive deeper into the topic of each session. They are the videos that go with the group time in the Bible study book. We recommend them if you want to dive deeper into Raechel and Amanda’s teaching on Scripture.

Now for Session 6!
Questions to answer in the comments:
1. At the end of “Start Here,” Amanda asks the question, “What does abiding in Christ look like?” What do you think? What words come to mind?
2. Are you resting in the truth of God’s Word? If not, why? If so, how? What are some other tangible ways you can abide in Christ by resting?
3. Analog Bible Reader or Digital Bible Reader?
This week, complete Week 6: Live in Truth in the Bible study book and we’ll meet back here next week to discuss!
