1 Timothy 4:13 NIV
Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.
Bible study, including the public reading of scriptures, is very important to me. As a little boy in the house of my dad, he trained us —and provided innumerable opportunities for us — to publicly read, collectively study, memorize and internalize the scriptures.
Furthermore, I came up through the Children’s Evangelism Ministries where our teachers and leaders focused our minds on the scriptures.
I consider raw, in-depth scripture readings and studies to be essential to spiritual growth.
The following video clip will give you a sneak view into a typical bible study session at the ongoing Wildfire Retreat.
It captures part of our group bible study and discussion on Psalm 17:14, 15.
It’s real. It’s raw.
