I am not sure how many of you are doing "How to study your Bible", but I had a great time studying this morning. Chris set up a desk for me in the spare room and I went in and for 1 and a half hours I studied (1) scripture. It was amazing! Now will I get the opportunity to do that every morning, well I would love to say yes, but will take whatever time the LORD allows. I just know that this year I am making this a discipline in my life, the desire has been there, now I get to apply it. For those of you who are not able to take the classes yet, I encourage you to at least try to ask a couple of questions when you are reading your scriptures. What is the most important term and/or concept of the passage? And in what ways does the passage apply to my own personal life?
The scriptures I gave Saturday morning in Matthew 13:1-23, mainly 19-23, please do not let these overwhelm you. Just look at the 4 types of soil and right down the differences between them. That will be enough and if that is still too much at least just read through it once or twice, that will be a start.
My prayer is that we all wake up every morning with a hunger for God's Word and apply it to our lives. I would love for you to share on here any exciting things God shows you this week. Let us build each other up and speak life!
