It can be elusive and hard to define. But you know it when you see it. Or feel it. Or touch it. It’s those “wow” moments in Scripture that bring pause, when Truth reaches past your protective shell and grabs your heart, leaving you better in any number of ways: more resolute, courageous, awakened, convicted, motivated, inspired. In short, better equipped to live life. And, we need more of it.
InWord is committed to creating access points for meaningful engagement in God’s Word. We’ve been doing it for years. There are few better moments in the life of a youth worker than seeing a light bulb click on over a teen’s head. It’s a solid step toward life transformation.
Researchers tell us that Bible ownership is at an all-time high, but Bible engagement is at an all-time low. Our prayer is that as we encourage and advocate for the Holy Wow that students will be enamored by the God who loves them, that the church will be invigorated by the joys of obedience, and that our culture will be attracted to the gospel message as they see God’s people actively engaged in God’s Word.
Web-based Bible engagement needs to be more than a verse and a picture. Even more than a verse in a cool font with a graphically charged picture. Those are great. But there can be more.
Follow us and like us for an invigorating online Bible experience. Each InWord post or tweet is a byte-sized burst of Bible engagement—a passage and a challenge to get to The Holy Wow.
For youth workers: Share these with your students as daily encouragements/challenges or create an online small-group community.
For students: Use InWord’s online Holy Wow devos as a part of your regular diet on God’s Word.
Use this short devotional exercise as a Holy Wow kick start for your students.
|EXPANDED SMALL-GROUP (COMING SOON! REAL SOON!)We are renovating InWord’s pioneering, well-loved, small-group Bible studies. Revisions include multiple guides for multiple ages as well as a social media guide to support your small-group experience or to use as an online Bible experience for your students—a virtual small group.
