Saturated

This post will go under the Bible Study/Spirituality section of my blog. I am not going to write a lot except to tell you that if you are interested in living a victorious, power filled, Christian life, the key to that is talked about in this podcast.  It is part 2 of this podcast on the Book of Acts by Dr. Stephen Manley.

Dr. Manley is my second favorite preacher of all time. (Of course, I am married to my first favorite preacher of all time) He is the one who originally got me interested in researching Saturation Bible Study and eventually trying to practice it.

I hope you all are continuing to saturate in the Book of Romans. Even though I have neglected to keep up my posts with my answers to the questions, the truth is you don’t need them. You simply need your Bible and notebook, yourself and the Holy Spirit. If you have been saturating or attempting to, I would love to hear about it. Especially if God has revealed an “aha” moment to you.

I will be writing again soon. In the meantime please check out the podcasts above.

The Word

My second favorite preacher ever, Dr. Stephen Manley once described how Jesus fulfills all scripture like this.

God decided to take who he is, his very nature and throw it down on the earth, and it was in the form of a book, The Bible, the written Word. Then Jesus came off his throne in heaven and jumped down into the book, fitting into it perfectly like a tailor made suit. Then the Holy Spirit came and indwelt us. Now when we pick up the written Word, which is filled with the living Word, through the power of the Holy Spirit something supernatural happens. (My paraphrase) 

I have a passion for the Word. The written Word filled with the living Word. Hebrews 4:12 describes that supernatural thing that happens when we read the Word this way.

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

A long time ago I was praying about what purpose God had for me in His service and he said to me “Use your words”. I have spent a bit of time exploring what that means. This morning, in a culmination of things that have been happening lately in regards to my writing career, learning how to be a more effective blogger, along with an awesome Podcast I have been listening to, God spoke again.

This time he said, “Use your words to share My Word.”

I can often be stubborn, and as a certain cousin of mine who shall remain nameless said, exasperating, but I try to be obedient when the Lord speaks.

Long story short I am going to begin to blog about studying the Word. I will be sharing with you my favorite way of studying the Word, and also let you walk along with me as I teach a Bible Study on Romans.

I am also going to be writing a book and homeschool curriculum about ‘Techniques for Personal Bible Study’.
