Last week I reminded you of the need for all of us, all of us, to regularly read our bibles. At the back of the auditorium we had some old fashioned book marks that provide some helpful tips to understanding the bible. They also offer a system to assist us in applying the bible to our lives.
There are still some of those bookmarks available and I encourage you to pick one of them up, put it in your bible and use it!
Often we can be fooled into thinking that nothing is happening with reading the bible so we give it away… but I have come to realise that reading the scriptures is a long term adventure. The regular pattern creates, in due course, the space for God to speak. We get to hear his heartbeat and to know his thoughts over time.
I would be keen to hear your experiences.
