Dear Studious Saints
With these chapters, we conclude the Bible chapters that many of us memorized from years ago. Please reflect on these chapters, even if you never memorized them and shoot some questions, thoughts, or special passages to us. We are not to keep everything to ourselves that the Lord shows us or tosses around in our minds but we truly learn so much from each other.
Next week we’ll review and reflect on all of the chapters that we’ve done as a group and the following week, on January 25th, we will begin memorizing 1 John 1, two verses per week. If you want to just follow along, that is fine but don’t be duped into thinking that you can’t memorize. You can if you want to. If I can do it truly anyone can!
Also, feel free to offer anything else that you’ve appreciated in the verses from the chapters that we’ve had in previous weeks if you wish to. In fact, in my post last week, I did have a question that I forgot to ask that I sure wish some could offer light on and that is Philippians 4:6. It is probably one of the most well known verses in the Bible where it speaks of having no anxiety in anything but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God." This may seem like an insignificant question but why do you think that Paul states, “by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving…” Doesn’t it seem redundant to say by prayer and then includes supplication and thanksgiving as though they are separate from prayer. In other words, aren’t supplication and thanksgiving aspects of prayer? Am I being too trite?
I hope the interest is still there to continue this thread as the replies and even those viewing the post is way down. We leave it in Jesus’ hands. May you receive from Him Words of life as you review these 2 amazing chapters!
