Class went well today as we talked some more about the process of Bible study and especially about the final two stages, interpretation and application, and a simple way to present the truth that we discover. It is exciting to see how students are really understanding and seeming to internalize the concepts. I am hopeful and pray that it will become a life pattern for them. One of the best parts of the class was when I asked them to share some of the observations they are making so far in their personal study of a passage during this class. We found that they are doing an outstanding job and really digging into their passage, making great observations. In the final segment of class, we talked about the role of the Holy Spirit in the revelation of the Word. Just was Jesus was sourced by the Father through the indwelling Spirit, so we too are gifted with this same resource as Jesus indwells us by the Spirit. We spoke of the powerful and life-changing revelation that He brings, and how we need such a demonstration of the Spirit and of power in our lives and in our day. Again the class closed on a rousing note of commitment to focus upon Jesus and allow this to take place in our lives.
With a thankful heart in Christ,
