John Wycliffe -- An early English Bible translator.

Three of the topics I listed in my last post – the connection between Bible study, worship, spiritual warfare, and the question of why we study the Bible – are related in such a way that I’m finding I need to deal with them all at once.  So, I’m leaving them until last......for this post, we’re going to discuss how to manage and sort through all the different versions/translations of the Bible......

So, how did your Bible-speed-read time go?  Is it pulling you deeper into the word and is the Spirit using it to speak truth to your soul?  Honestly, it probably is too soon for me to ask that question as that method needs to be used long-term for quite a while before it really becomes effective.  It’s okay to save the speed-read technique for later, but if you’ve tried it, share some of your thoughts in the comments below.  I’d like to know how it has been working for you.

When it comes to Bible study it helps to look at the Bible from God’s perspective.  Put yourself in His shoes and think about how you would help your children get to know you.  Probably the best way to go about it would be to write down your thoughts explaining to them, maybe in a series of letters, why you do things the way you do.  You might even want to share some of the deeper things of your heart.  If your kids are to get to know you, they need to know both your hurts and your joys.  You may even need to address some of the ways they are the ones who hurt you.  That’s a hard place for
