Tonight is the start of the winter video training in London, and as in previous years I am preparing verse sheets to go along with the training outlines. I find these useful to quickly look up the verses as the brothers are speaking the messages, and to get into the verse references during the study times. I hope you find them useful too, and am making them available here for those who do.
These verse sheets are for the Crystallization-study of Genesis (2), and I will update this post as I go along. As a little note, in order to conserve space I tend not to quote whole chapters that are referenced, so you will need to look those ones up. Oh, and if you spot any mistakes, please let me know so I can correct them. Thanks!
When I was living with my roommate a few years ago, we used to remind each another often of this verse:
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
This verse tells us to be thankful to the Lord, not just for the good things, but for everything. So when we were living together, and something would happen, one of us would say, “Thank You Lord…” and the other would be reminded and reply, “…for everything.”
I’ve been feeling really thankful to the Lord recently. It’s not like something particular has happened, I’m just generally thankful. Maybe it is because I read this Bibles for America article about Thanksgiving. It just seemed to sink in a bit more for me this year, that it’s not just about the yummy food (I’ve tried it, it is delicious). But it really is about giving thanks to God.
It is wonderful to have this time of year to be reminded to thank the Lord. But it is even more wonderful to realise that this does not have to be limited to once a year, or even to once a week. Our thankfulness can be daily, even moment by moment. Oh thank You Lord. Lord, thank You.
I was very sad to receive the news today that my grandmother (Popo/Japo) passed away, early this morning. She lived a long and full life, and was always with her family who loved and cared for her, and whom she loved and cared for.
I do hope that I could be such a person, doing nothing and being nothing, just walking with the Lord until the day I am taken to be with Him.
Having heard that the upcoming Summer Training is going to be on the book of Genesis, and having received a lot of encouragement recently to get into the Life-studies in a regular way, I’ve decided to pause my sporadic reading of the New Testament Life-studies (but I have made it to Luke now!) and start with Genesis. Let’s see how far I can get before the Summer Training starts!
So, also in attempt to get back into posting (sorry for my silence), I thought I’d share from my enjoyment of message one. In this message, the first part was on how the Bible is a wonderful book. And it really is! It is the breath of God, it is spirit and life, and it mainly reveals life to us. Thank You Lord, for the Bible.
Last winter I made verse sheets for the Winter Training 2011: Psalms (2) to help in my study for the video training. These verse sheets seemed to be very helpful for others also, and so I am sharing the verse sheets I’m making for the Crystallization-study of Daniel and Zechariah and will be posting them here as I go along. We start our video training here in London tonight :)
