Chapter One SESSION 1

A deeply religious man lived in a house by the river, but one day the banks burst and the house was flooded. As the water level rose alarmingly, the man climbed onto the roof of the house. A boat came by. "Climb aboard," called the captain.

"No, I shall stay here," said the man. "God will take care of me."

Twenty minutes later, with waters still rising, the man climbed onto the chimney. Another boat came past. "Jump aboard," said the captain.

"No, I shall stay here," said the man. "God will take care of me."

With the water up to the man's waist, a helicopter suddenly swooped down. "Quick!" shouted the pilot. "Climb aboard!"

"No, I shall stay here," said the man. "God will take care of me."

The water level continued to rise and soon the man was swept away from the chimney and drowned. Up in heaven, he sought out God. "I thought you said you would take care of me," he complained.

God said, "I sent you two boats and a helicopter. What more do you want?"

ON YOUR OWN BETWEEN SESSIONS

This Week's Reading Tips

You will be reading the Bible on your own. You can set your own schedule, but plan to read 12 pages a day (in the curriculum Bible, the NIV Bible in 90 Days) in order to keep up with the group. In 90 days, you will have accomplished your goal!

We'll meet together once a week for encouragement, fellowship, activities, accountability, group discussion and video lessons. But you'll read on your own, and the reading is the most important thing.

Try to read at different times to see what works best for you. Try reading in the morning and at night, or split your reading into different segments throughout the day and/or night. Try reading over a lunch hour, between meetings or while waiting in line.

Very important: Understand what you can, but don't worry about the rest. You'll be getting more from your reading than you realize. This last point is so important that we'll repeat it several times in the next few weeks.

Before you start your reading, please indicate below how much of the Old Testament and New Testament you have read prior to taking this course.

BOOKS YOU'LL ENCOUNTER THIS WEEK Genesis Overview

The adventure begins. God creates the universe and all things in it, providing an idyllic home for Adam and Eve. When the serpent tempts them to turn their back on God, the conflict for the rest of the Bible is set. God's intention for a relationship with humans is apparent throughout the Bible through the descriptions of his faithfulness and covenants with his chosen ones, even in the face of their unfaithfulness.

Exodus Overview

Four hundred years pass after the death of Joseph at the end of Genesis. The family of Abraham long ago lost the advantage of Joseph's significant political protection during their stay in Egypt. As a people, they are now slaves there. God proves he has not forgotten them by delivering them from slavery, building them up as his chosen ones in the eyes of the Egyptians and the world.

READ THIS WEEK

Pages 1-84 in the NIV Bible in 90 Days (Gen. 1:1 - Ex. 40:38)

PERSONAL PROGRESS

If it is helpful to do so, use the following chart to record your reading progress this week. Establish a reading schedule that works well for you-then stick with it. Try to make it a habit to pray before you begin reading each day, asking God to use his Word to instruct and guide you.
