DIG for Tuesday the 28th of March…..it is exciting to study the Word, it really is…..2 Timothy 2 v 15

As some of you may know I have recently been heavily involved in setting up a Bible School through our church, and am now having the real privilege of marking the assessments of our students.

I am finding this great fun and I am also really enjoying what I am seeing in the students.

They are really excited about what they are learning; discussing the assessments and scriptures in church and really throwing themselves into their studies.

Yes, it is taking a lot of time and effort, however it is of great worth.

The Word of God, or understanding the Word of God, is the agent of change in our lives.

The students are telling me that they are being changed as a result of their studies.

They can see the benefits of this course of study in their everyday lives.

As a teacher and pastor this is just an amazing thing to be told; making the “work” and “effort” I put in worthwhile.

It is a real “buzz” to see people changed by the Word of God.

This is no surprise as this is what the Word of God says about itself.

We are transformed by the renewing of our mind to the truths that we see in God’s Word (Romans 12 v 2).

I know that I speak for our students when I recommend that you also get into His Word and get your life changed for the better.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that it is the agent for positive change in my life”.

2 Timothy 2 v 15…..Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth

DIG for Monday the 27th of March…..the evidence points me towards the Lord…..Psalm 19 v 1

I had a lovely conversation last night with a young lad and had the privilege to tell him why I believed what I believe.

As I spoke to him I was in wonder at what I used to believe!

Coming from a science background (and no church background) I believed everything I read or was told in a science class; I never really looking into anything myself.

Evolution and the Big Bang were taken as science fact when of course they are just theories.

Now I know I took all this on board without looking for the evidence.

As a believer I am now using what some would call a “scientific method”.

I study the Word and I look for evidence in the world and this leads me to be fully persuaded that there is a Creator God in this universe.

I wrote a couple of days ago about the magnificence of the starts pointing to God.

Last night I was talking about the eye, the pancreas, symbiotic parasitism, metamorphosis and the chicken and the egg among other things; these are all evidence that evolution is a lie and that there has to be a Creator God.

The world and all that is in it screams out that God is alive and active.

A God so in love with His creation that He sent Jesus to reconcile everything under Him (Colossians 1 v 20).

What a mighty and loving God we serve!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you loved us so much that you sent Jesus for our reconciliation and forgiveness”.

Psalm 19 v 1…..The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork
