Transformation comes from living into questions, not from finding answers.
We often look to the Bible as the book of answers. How often do we consider the challenging questions God asks? Beloved author Trevor Hudson points out that though Jesus was asked 183 questions in the Gospels, he directly answered only three.
"I thought the Bible existed to give me solutions to my everyday concerns and dilemmas. Then I realized I might be approaching God and the Bible from the wrong direction. It was as if God said to me, 'Trevor, rather than you always asking questions of me, start listening to the questions I have for you.'"
In this eCourse, you'll be encouraged to listen to those questions God has for you. Through short videos, reading, personal reflection, and participant comments, you'll be invited to consider ten of the questions God asks. The goal is a deeper dialogue and intimacy with God.
Trevor takes 10 questions from the Old and New Testaments to serve as starting points for genuine conversation with the Creator. He assures, "We're not starting the conversation with God from scratch. God has already begun it. We just need to plug into the conversation that is already going on."
Feel free to finish this eCourse quickly or to take your time. It's ready to begin when you are!
