I will be beginning my own personal bible study (one-on-one) with a Messianic Jew. Once a week, every week, from now until school ends, we will be getting together and he will be giving me his wonderful insight into the word of God. This week's study (meeting next Thursday) will be the first 10 chapters of Genesis. I am excited that the Lord has blessed me with a one-on-one teacher from which to glean so much wonderful insight. I plan on condensing the study a bit and posting it online every week (once Gypsy gives me the ok). Hopefully in this way I will be able to share these wonderful insights with all of you.
Personally, I struggle to get motivated to study the Word, and I need to be poked with a proverbial stick every once in a while. My guess is, there are probably a few of you out there who are just like me in this respect. People have overcome this with respect to exercise by having a "gym buddy" or something along those lines. I wonder if the same principle could work for studying the Word. I elieve it is word a try, so, I wonder if any of you would be willing to follow along with me. I'm not asking you to read the studies I'm going to post, although that would be nice, and I'm certainly not asking you to forsake a bible study with your church in favor of mine. But I do challenge you, if you struggle in getting yourself into God's Word regularly, or aren't already in a bible study or other regular schedule of reading God's Word, to read along with me.
If anyone wants to read along in the Bible with me, from beginning to end, approximately 10 chapters a week (maybe more if there are enough who want to do more, and all agree), then PM me, or respond. I think this is a worthy undertaking, and it may be an interesting supplement to anything else you have going. I encourage anyone who reads this, to pray about it, and if you find that God wants you to read his word along with me, even for
a book or two, then PM me and we can get started.
After all, "bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come." (1 Timothy 4:8 KJV)
Please pray for me, that my time with my friend to study the Bible (however short) will be profitable, and that I will stay disciplined to read through the entire Bible, omitting nothing, and not slacking in the commitment I have made before the Lord. Thank you all in advance for your prayers and support.
Our lives are but a vapor, let us not let waste our time and breath on vanities, but let us spend ourselves for the Kingdom, seeking a better resurrection.
