Concerning Discipleship and Scripture
The Discipleship and Scripture podcasts were an attempt to explain the problems I have seen people have with learning to reading the Bible. When I was in High School, I always had my Bible with me, and would spend every free moment I could reading it.
After getting home from school, I would shut myself off from the world and spend 2-3 practicing how to read Scripture. As a result, I had really bad grades in school, but what did school have to offer anyways that would be worth more than God?
They told me I would not graduate, my grades were so bad, but I decided I had been given another year in school and became even dedicated to Bible reading. As a result, something interesting began to happen. My grades began to improve, and I was able to graduate after all.
I had made the choice that God's agenda was worth more than the agenda I was being told to pursue by the teachers in school, and God got so excited He intervened to help me finish school without having to struggle or study anything!
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you" the Master said in Matthew 6:33 (ESV). He kept his promise to me!
Praise the Lord!
