Last September I released a Bible study called, “This Is Eternal Life” and suggested taking the month as a focused time of prayer and Bible study. I decided to make it a tradition.
I’ve linked “September Studies” under Bible on the site if you want to find last year’s. This year’s is linked there as well. It’s called “Be Ye Separate.” It’s a study on being consecrated, holy, set apart for God’s purposes.
Instead of going through a book of the Bible, like how I used Matthew last year, it goes through various characters from the Bible and looks at how they were or were not set apart. I hope it’s a blessing.
Our family has taken to calling September “Jesus month.” We take a little more time for Bible study and prayer. Our schedule and activities look a little different for the month.
Maybe these studies should follow the Jewish calendar and run Elul 1 through Yom Kippur, but for now, September is the general time of the Fall Feasts, the Feasts we are waiting to be fulfilled by Christ’s return, which make it a good month to choose to set apart to help us stay alert.
Although the course is called, “Be Ye Separate,” the linked scriptures are mostly the NASB 1995 version. I just can’t think of that phrase any other way. 🙂
The study has 31 lessons, one a day for the month of September plus a little bonus one. You can add this to My EP by using one of the Bible blocks (there’s another on the Extras page). The “Be Ye” course is at the end of the list, so just keep clicking Next Course to find it. You could use Parent-Add-On as well to get it on your lesson page. Moms (and dads and grandparents) feel free to make yourself a student page to follow this course.

P.S. If this post looks all squishy and weird to you, you aren’t alone. I can’t seem to do anything about it. It’s not how I wrote it. It’s not how it looks on the editing page. I guess maybe something to be expected encouraging Jesus Month…Be praying for me and EP!
