One Holy Passion — A Quiet Time Experience

Dear friends, I would like to invite you to join me for our Fall 2017 Online Bible Study of One Holy Passion — A Sacred Journey In Exodus To God’s Amazing Love.


ABOUT THE BOOK — ONE HOLY PASSION

Key Verse:
“You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself.”
— Exodus 19:4 NASB

Experience God’s Power In The Red Sea Place

Have you come to the Red Sea place, seeking your destiny, desiring to embrace God’s holy passion for you? God loves you and has a plan for your life. You are meant for God. As you spend eight weeks exploring guided devotions inspired by the love story of Exodus, you will find yourself borne on eagles’ wings to the Creator Himself, to the heart of God, to the proof of God’s amazing love, learn why all our comfort in deliverance is not our knowing God, but our being known by Him, explore biblical doctrines of theology, covenant, tabernacle, deliverance, redemption, atonement, provision, and grace, and discover our liberty, honor, covenant, and communion with God all bring us back to Himself. You’ll find short, inspirational selections from great devotional writers, Scripture verses to look up and reflect on, thoughtful questions inviting your response, prayer starters, and more. Catherine Martin’s myPhotoWalk Devotional Photography images enhance every daily quiet time. Travel this sacred journey in Exodus and you will surely discover yourself as a holy and beautiful masterpiece made for God’s glory!

ENJOYING INTIMACY WITH GOD

Cling tightly to the LORD your God. Joshua 23:8 NLT

Ray C. Stedman writes: “Christians—and only Christians—have the capacity to transcend the old and put on the new. That is the testimony of Scripture. When we believe in Jesus Christ and receive him as Lord, we are renewed in the depth of our spirit. Christ is our life now, and a radical transformation has taken place. The new self is in the likeness of God, the image of Jesus. You are now identified with Him. If you are a Christian, the life of Christ lives in you.” Quoted from One Holy Passion - A Sacred Journey in Exodus to God's Amazing Love by Catherine Martin (http://www.quiettime.org/online-store/ohpaqte-book/)

THE HEAVENLY COUNTRY

But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them. Hebrews 11:16

One day, dear friend, your faith shall be made sight. And you will step into heaven, face to face with your Lord, in the eternal city of God, and as a member of His kingdom, you will find eternal rest in the promised land of heaven. Until that day, you live by faith in Christ, and find your life in Him. He will manifest through you the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.

TIME ALONE WITH GOD TODAY

Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! John 7:37 AMP

Andrew Murray writes: “Man needs to be alone with God. Without this, God cannot have the opportunity to shine into his heart, to transform his nature by His divine working, to take possession of him, and to fill him with His fullness. Man needs to be alone with God, to yield to the presence and power of His holiness, of His life, and of His love.” Quoted from One Holy Passion - A Sacred Journey in Exodus to God's Amazing Love by Catherine Martin (http://www.quiettime.org/online-store/ohpaqte-book/)

One Holy Passion — A Quiet Time Experience
Online Bible Studies with Catherine Martin
WEEK SEVEN

The day was clear and bright in Sedona, Arizona — one of those picture postcard days you live for as a photographer. My husband and I sauntered along the Cathedral Rock Trail, cameras in hand, enjoying the eternal wonder that is Cathedral Rock.

The Cathedral Rock trailhead off Hwy-179, just East of the sinuous Oak Creek, can be accessed off of Back’O’Beyond Road. The trail ends with a short steep climb to Cathedral Rock itself. And when we first saw this beautiful red rock formation, perhaps the most photographed image in Arizona after the Grand Canyon, we just stopped to admire its beauty.

That same moment occurs when God gives us a glimpse of His heart. We stop in awe of Him and the fact that He has drawn near.

James wrote about this experience that we can know firsthand for ourselves: “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).

This invitation is open for you at all times. You are invited to take a journey to the heart of God.

And we experienced a bit of this journey in Week 7 in One Holy Passion. We explored the grace of God as well as the discipline of His people. We also spent a day looking at the intimate, face to face relationship Moses had with God. We saw how much God desires our singular love and commitment, and that He is a Jealous God, asking that we have no rival love. And finally, we learned that God has service for us as we live with Him each day.

Through all of these days of study, I was led deeper into God’s amazing love. I couldn’t help but be absolutely overwhelmed with the fact that God has opened Himself up to us. He has chosen to allow us to be intimate with Him. That in itself is astounding. After all, He is God, the Creator of the universe. He is wholly other and does not need to be so transparent in His revelation. And yet, He is all love. And more than that, He loves you and me. Think on that truth for awhile.

I thought Day 2, “He Disciplines His People,” was profound. I saw the sunny side of trials and was encouraged. I especially loved the writing of our friend, Charles Haddon Spurgeon —
May your character not be a writing upon the sand, but an inscription upon the rock…It is of no use to hope that we shall be well rooted if no rough winds pass over us. Those old gnarlings on the root of the oak tree, and those strange twistings of the branches, all tell of the many storms that have swept over it, and they are also indicators of the depth into which the roots have forced their way. So the Christian is made strong, and firmly rooted by all the trials and storms of life. Shrink not then from the tempestuous winds of trial, but take comfort, believing that by their rough discipline God is fulfilling this benediction to you.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon in One Holy Passion

I have discovered as I have studied One Holy Passion together with you that there is a cumulative effect as I live in God’s Word day by day in this study. It seems like suddenly I have come to a firm conclusion that is more resolute than ever before: God loves me! Of course, I have known He loves me since my mother and my grandmother taught me about Him when I was very young. But now I know more than before how very much He loves me and desires and intimate relationship. This knowledge serves to motivate me to take time alone with Him to know and love Him even more.

So dear friend, what have you been learning as we near the end of this sacred journey in Exodus? Are you experiencing God’s amazing love in a new and deeper way?

O Holy Savior, make my life deeper, stronger, richer, gentler, more Christlike, more full of the spirit of heaven, more devoted to your service and glory, so that I may ever bless and praise you, and magnify your name and adorn your Gospel in all things. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
My One Holy Passion Prayer For You this week by F.B. Meyer in Week 7, Day 5

God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!

♥ Catherine

SOLA SCRIPTURA DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

In this seventh week of study, you have gone deeper in your journey in Exodus with Moses and the people of Israel to God’s amazing love. We are now catching a glimpse of God’s heart in new ways. We are seeing that He is all grace, and that He disciplines His people. We are learning what it means to have a face to face relationship with Him, how He wants no rival love and desires us to serve Him. How did this week of study encourage you to know and love God more? What meant the most to you the most about the heart of God? What day of study meant the most to you this week and why? What was your favorite quote, insight, or verse? How has God revealed Himself to you this week? What is God teaching you?
Please comment.


YOUR ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment this next week is to study Week 8, Days 1-7, Into The Promised Land from One Holy Passion — A Sacred Journey in Exodus to God’s Amazing Love. At the end of Week Eight, you may also want to enjoy the companion Week Eight message for One Holy Passion (Viewer Guide, pp287-288) — Living In The Promised Land – Digital M4V Video or Living In The Promised Land – Digital MP3 Audio. In our eighth week of study as we complete this sacred journey with the Lord, we are going to see how Moses, Joshua, and the children of Israel experienced the promised land. And then, we are going to learn how we can experience the promised land even now. And finally, we will look at our wonderful hope, the hope of heaven and eternal life. I will meet you back here with one final post and discussion question on Saturday, December 16, 2017.


GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR STUDY

Grab your Bible and One Holy Passion and draw near to the Lord. Give yourself lots of time with the Lord. And make it a special time just for you and your Lord. You may want to set out your quiet time basket and fill it with quiet time materials including colored pencils, micron pens, devotionals, your Bible, One Holy Passion, and your journal or notebook. If you have extra time, you may want to create an art journal and make pages of collage and art with all that you are learning. You may want to take extra time to write in The Quiet Time Journal or The Quiet Time Notebook. If I ever find myself rushing in my quiet time with the Lord, then I always stop, take a deep breath, and remember God’s invitation, “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). I’m excited to be able to share this journey with you over the next 8 weeks. I want all of us to keep an eye and ear open for what God has to say to us as we live in His Word. And then, let’s be open and willing to share what God teaches us. And let’s pray for one another.

INTIMACY WITH GOD

The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Exodus 33:11 NIV

Lilias Trotter writes: “If every fraction of a second tells in the film in the camera, while ‘unveiled’ it faces the light, must not something of the same unseen work go on upon our spirits in every moment of unveiling before the Lord? When Moses went in before the Lord to speak with Him, he took the veil off. Bare absolute contact with God’s Presence—if our times alone with Him were but that all the time, they would be mighty in their outcome.” Quoted from One Holy Passion - A Sacred Journey in Exodus to God's Amazing Love by Catherine Martin (http://www.quiettime.org/online-store/ohpaqte-book/)

One Holy Passion — A Quiet Time Experience
Online Bible Studies with Catherine Martin
WEEK SIX

My husband and I were on a myPhotoWalk adventure in Sedona, AZ to capture photography for a new full–color daily devotional book, myPhotoWalk – Quiet Time Moments, eventually released in January, 2016. We had already completed photo shoots at Glacier, Zion, & Bryce National Parks, Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell, Hawaii, Tuscany, Klamath Falls, Newport Beach, San Francisco, Santa Fe, East and West Seacoasts, and the Mojave–Sonoran Deserts. Sedona was our last stop. We wanted only the best images for the Catherine Martin — SmugMug Portfolio.

http://www.quiettime.org/online-store/mpwqtmmpw-book/

http://catherinemartin.smugmug.com/

We had just taken the turn off I-17 toward the Village of Oak Creek. Winding our way, we began to see the distant red rock formations. Bright sun washed the mountains between rolling gray-black clouds. A thunderstorm was brewing. Suddenly, the sunlight lit up Courthouse Butte and Bell Rock in a way I had not seen in all my many trips to Sedona. This was a photographer’s great opportunity — “take the shot when you see it.”

We screeched to halt at the Red Rock Visitor Center on Hwy 179, and I leaped from the car with my camera and tripod to capture this once–in–a–lifetime view with spectacular light. I probably captured at least 200 shots. I remarked to my husband, “Those are probably going to be the best shots we will get all week!” I was right. The light was just magnificent in contrast with the black clouds of the impending storm. We had many other great photographic opportunities on that trip, but the light that first day was incomparable.

There are moments in our life when our time with God is so glorious that we seem to be standing on holy ground. I want to encourage you to cultivate your quiet time alone with God so that you will catch glimpses of spectacular views with your Lord. Knowing Him is the greatest pursuit in all of life.

In our sixth week of study in One Holy Passion, we had the opportunity to experience God with Moses, and behold His glory in new ways through worship, with covenant, on Mount Sinai, in the sanctuary, and with offerings. This week was extensive in study and powerful in depth of spiritual truth. I want to encourage you to schedule extra time to live in these passages of Scripture and drink in all that the Lord has for you.

One word that stood out to me as I lived in God’s Word was “forever.” I seemed to see it everywhere, especially in the Hebrews passages in Day 2. Jesus lives forever, His priesthood is forever, He saves us forever, He intercedes for us forever, and secured our redemption forever (Hebrews 7:22-27, 9:11-22). Forever is a big word because that means nothing can change what the Lord Jesus has done for us or our position in Him that lasts forever.

Selah — pause and think of that!

Then, my very favorite quote was by Andrew Murray in Day 3, Yield Yourself To God, and it truly describes my pursuit, purpose and passion in life —
What is the chief thing, the greatest and most glorious, that man can see or find upon earth? Nothing less than God Himself. And what is the chief, the best, the most glorious thing that a man can and needs to do every day? Nothing less than to seek, to know, to love, and to praise this glorious God. As glorious as God is, so is the glory that begins to work in the heart and life of the man who gives himself to live for God. My brother and sister in Christ, have you learned the first and greatest thing you have to do every day? Nothing less and nothing greater than to seek this God, to meet Him, to worship Him, to live for Him and for His glory. It is a great step in the life of a Christian when he truly sees this truth and yields himself to consider fellowship with God every day as the chief purpose of his life.
One Holy Passion

I find myself filled with a wholehearted passion to draw near to God and gaze on His beauty. I love Him more today than when I began this study of One Holy Passion, and I trust the same is true for you

So dear friend, what are you learning on this sacred journey? Do you sense that we are truly standing on holy ground as we are living in Exodus and seeing the passion of our great and glorious God?

May I love you, my God and Father, with a holy, absorbing, and increasing love, not for what you give, but for who you are. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
My One Holy Passion Prayer For You this week by F.B. Meyer in Week 6, Day 3

God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!

YOUR ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment this next week is to study Week 7, Days 1-7, Journey to the Heart of God from One Holy Passion — A Sacred Journey in Exodus to God’s Amazing Love. At the end of Week Seven, you may also want to enjoy the companion Week Seven message for One Holy Passion (Viewer Guide, pp253-254) — Let Me Know Your Ways – Digital M4V Video or Let Me Know Your Ways – Digital MP3 Audio. In our seventh week of study as we continue this sacred journey with the Lord, we are going to draw closer to our God and see Him as we have never seen Him before. Once again, we are going to climb with Moses up to Mt. Sinai and see what happens as he prays, “Show me Your glory” (Exodus 33:18). I will meet you back here with a new post and discussion question on Saturday, December 9, 2017.


GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR STUDY

Grab your Bible and One Holy Passion and draw near to the Lord. Give yourself lots of time with the Lord. And make it a special time just for you and your Lord. You may want to set out your quiet time basket and fill it with quiet time materials including colored pencils, micron pens, devotionals, your Bible, One Holy Passion, and your journal or notebook. If you have extra time, you may want to create an art journal and make pages of collage and art with all that you are learning. You may want to take extra time to write in The Quiet Time Journal or The Quiet Time Notebook. If I ever find myself rushing in my quiet time with the Lord, then I always stop, take a deep breath, and remember God’s invitation, “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). I’m excited to be able to share this journey with you over the next 8 weeks. I want all of us to keep an eye and ear open for what God has to say to us as we live in His Word. And then, let’s be open and willing to share what God teaches us. And let’s pray for one another.

See Oak Creek Canyon, Upper Red Rock Loop, Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Slide Rock, West Fork Trail, and your senses will having you dancing before the Lord. Indeed, the myPhotoWalk™ cover photography for One Holy Passion beyond Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte calls forth the eager pilgrim to a thirst–quenching spiritual journey.

CONSIDERING THE WORK OF GOD'S HANDS

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. Psalm 8:3-5 ESV

I was out this morning at 3:30 am to shoot the supermoon. It was cold and I could hear my owl hooting somewhere nearby. The moon is the closest to the earth this year and it shines 30% brighter than normal. It officially turns full at 10:47 am on Sunday, but will appear full for the next couple days.

When you stand outside all alone and gaze at the work of the Lord's hands, you can't help but feel a bit as though you are standing on holy ground. You and God together, admiring His work. Whatever you face today, draw near to the Lord, and rest in His love, strength, beauty and majesty. He is all-sufficient and always more than enough. God bless you.
