Podcast 2 – Relational Bible Reading

Since it is 2011 and the 400th anniversary of a certain English Bible, we decided to offer a podcast conversation on Bible reading.  Peter and Ron discuss the role of the Bible in the believer’s life, and what it looks like to read the Bible relationally.  This podcast lasts just over 17 minutes.

    A dear friend of mine who was impacted by Ron’s ministry invited me to join her in a Bible read-through. That was more than 10 years ago, and we are still meeting together, reading the Bible cover to cover two to three times per year. I love the description given in the Podcast about how reading the Bible “salts” our desire to pursue the Lord more deeply through His Word. I feel like I’ve barely begun to touch the edge of who God is, and I’m compelled to keep returning to His Word over and over again to draw closer into relationship with Him and hear what He has to say to me. It’s not about setting a goal to read through the Bible or to follow a particular program—-it’s about pressing into a relationship with the One who loves you like no other. And getting just a glimpse of that incredible love has been more heart-changing and life-changing than I could ever have imagined. PLEASE take up the invitation given in this Podcast to pursue the Lord through His Word—you will be captured by His love for you!

    There was a time I considered the reason for our being.

    After all, what could we contribute that He didn’t have should He so desire. God is Love – He desired my heart and He has it. As was said in the Podcast now I’m going after Him:) reading His Love letters!

    He leads us through His love letters and we share in all that is Abba’s. Enjoying His invitation to love Him, we desire to please Him -obeying what He knows is best for us. “Dead to sin and alive to God”. Our church bulletin on the day He snatched my heart!

    Thanks for the comments Mercedes and Gretchen. It’s always great to hear encouraging feedback. It’s even more special when it relates to ministry done years ago that is still appreciated!

    As referred to by Peter, Faith Comes by Hearing (FCBH) has apps for listening to the Bible for free, for Android, iPad, and iPhone/iPod, and also online without having to install anything. Everything can be found at http://bible.is/

    Audio Bibles are usually accompanied by the text so you can read along, and multiple languages and translations are available.

    Thank you for sharing the love!
