Bible Study

I am currently studying the Bible using Rick Warren's Bible Study Methods: Twelve Ways You Can Unlock God's Word. I would definitely recommend the book. I was thinking about how much time I typically spend being "conformed to the world" (at my secular workplace, watching TV for hours) versus how much time I spend "renewing my mind." How do I expect to live a Godly, sanctified life? I can easily spend so much time feeding the flesh but it takes work to purposely nurture the spirit. I read my Bible daily. I figured that was enough. But when I calculated the amount of time I spend in the Word versus the amount of time I spend in the world, my time in the Word falls short. Believers must spend serious time studying the Bible, in addition to devotional time.

Why is feeding the flesh SO MUCH easier?

I ask myself: What, could ye not watch one hour?

It's tough, but don't give up, and don't give in.

Hi, Jessica! I like your blog.

How true. It is so easy to get caught up in what we are doing; we forget for Whom we are doing it. "Martha, Martha."
