Being Filled with the Word of God
In OSL you will fill your heart with God's Word in a variety of ways. You will begin to read scripture daily. You will listen to powerful teaching, learning about the incredible depths of Jesus' love fro you, and the freeing truth that you are right with God through Jesus. You'll also memorize scripture each week.
Limiting Other Influences and Distractions
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly..." Psalm 1:1a.
OSL helps you to turn down the "noise" of the world as you fill your heart with the Word of God. During an OSL class you will limit your intake of secular media to two hours per week. This includes TV, internet, books, magazines, videos, video games, etc. For many this will free up additional time that you ca invest into your discipline journey.
Following the Spiritual Path to Growth & Freedom
"Then Jesus said to those who believed in Him, "If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."' John 8:31,32
In OSL we learn how to abide through the weekly disciplines of reading, listening to, and memorizing the Word of God. His trough will flood your heart, and as He promised it will bring freedom. Sin and bondage will begin to fall away as they are replaced with confidence, peace, and joy.
