I love reading the scripture with people. Over the last three weeks I have had the opportunity to read the bible with people in the hospital, in church, during wedding ceremonies, at home with my kids and via a wide variety of technology sources. I find that the bible encourages me when I am low. I find that the bible guides me when I have questions. I find that the bible gives me insight when I am lacking wisdom.
As the staff at CLC we started reading the book of 1 Corinthians this week. I love being in the bible with my teammates. Reading out loud together and sharing our thoughts and insights. We each take turns reading a portion of the chapter that we are on for the week. It is so encouraging for me to hear my friends read the bible.
Last week the Generations service started up again. For the adult portion of the evening we are in the book of Acts. Once again I take great joy in hearing people read the word of God.
I encourage you this week to spend time in the bible. Find a way that works best for you.
