Dear HCC Family and Friends,
I am sure that you would agree with me that it is very important to get God’s Word into our hearts and lives.
Here is an exercise you will find very practical, simple and benificial.
John 1:10-13 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
In order to receive maximum benefit from the scripture we have to ask ourselves….
- After reading this passage, and then without looking at it, can you put it in your own words? (writing it out is even better!)
- Then re-read the passage and see if you left anything important out?
- What does this passage tell you about God (Father son and Holy Spirit)?
- What does this passage tell you about people (yourself)?
- If this passage is a message from God to you, what in your life would (or would need to) change?
- Do you know someone who would benefit from hearing this Message?
- When are you going to tell them?
May God’s Word GROW and produce a HARVEST in your life as you PLANT IT in fertile soil!
Lots of love
Steve and Janet
