Aim of the Campaign
Welcome to 40 Days in the Word! This teaching series and corresponding small group curriculum shows you how to not just hear the Word, but to be a doer of the Word as well.
Together with Rick Warren and Saddleback Church you have experienced 40 days of Purpose, Love and Community. Now come along with Rick on a journey of 40 Days in the Word, a journey of eternal significance as you and your church will learn how to be not only a “hearer” of the Word, but also a “doer” of God’s Word.
In this campaign, you will listen to weekly teachings, go through the materials with your small group and follow a daily devotion and scripture reading. Your small group will be encouraged to work towards its own unique outreach project.
“How many times do members of your church doubt God’s Word, fall prey to others who attack its reliability or not live out its content? Too many of God’s people don’t know God’s Word, don’t really believe God’s Word or don’t ‘do’ God’s Word. 40 Days in the Word will transform your people from ‘hearers’ to ‘doers.’ ” Pastor Rick Warren.
40 Days in the Word is a church wide weekly study of six principles of the Word of God. Together with Rick and the Saddleback Team, you and your church will explore the authenticity, reliability, power, comfort, interpretation and doing of God’s Word. This eight week journey (Starting with your launch Sunday, followed by the six week sermon series, and concluding with your Celebration Sunday), led by Rick Warren, will encourage spiritual growth in every member of your church.
No other habit can do more to transform your life and make you more like Jesus than to study and act upon God’s Word. To be a healthy disciple of Jesus, feeding on God’s Word must be your first priority. Jesus called it “abiding.” He said,
“If you abide in my word, then you are truly disciples of mine” (John 8:31 NASB).
By the end of forty days together, this series will help you . . .
God’s Word is not meant just to inform you, but to transform you. God never meant for Bible study to simply increase our knowledge. Receiving, reading, researching, remembering, and reflecting on the Bible is useless if we fail to put God’s Word into practice.
The apostle James says if we want our lives to be blessed by God we must become “doers of the word” (James 1:22–25 KJV).
40 Days in the Word will inspire every person to Love the Word, Learn the Word and Live the Word!
40 Days in the Word is a journey of eternal significance and each person will not only learn how to be "hearers" of the Word, but also to become "doers" of the Word.
The initiative (sermon series and small groups) begins on your chosen launch Sunday, and will focus on six areas:
Session/Week 1: Pronounce It!

Simple yet complete
What Could Be Tedious Made Easy & Purposeful
Wisely, he limits these six group studies only to what he calls the Devotional Method, the first chapter out of his book, Bible Study Methods. But he also includes a brief lesson on principles of interpretation in session six.”
