Truly Growing

Over the course of the past few weeks I have been doing a daily devotional for anyone in the church that wants to read along. I do not know how many people are following, and I do not know if it is helping anyone, but I have learned so much.

This has been a great teaching time for me in my life. I have had to sit down and think in ways that I have not in a long time. It challenges me each day to write something devotionally from what we are reading. It has even forced me to pick a few of my commentaries to answer questions that have come up in my mind.

I decided a week ago that I was going to re-read my The Chronological Life of Christ Commentaries by Mark Moore. The first time I read them through was a as a freshman in college. Since then I have only used them as a reference tool. In college I was not prepared to learn everything that the books can teach. I have truly been blessed by re-reading the books. Christ life is becoming much more alive to me since starting this endeavor.

Maybe for those of you out there reading along with the Bible study you could start journaling. Write down some of your thoughts from each days reading. I believe this will challenge you just as it has challenged me. God bless in your endeavors to read the Bible.
