    What area of the Bible are you currenly reading / studying?

    Right now I just started the book of PSALMS. I’ve currently read all of the OT leading up to PSALMS… its taken me about a year to read 1/2 the Bible. I want to finish it by the end of 09.

    Nehemiah: I see that in building the wall every family had a part in building the wall. How is it that we have people in our churches for 30 years who hardly lift a finger?

    Ezra, and other later prophets like Jeremiah and Jonah(which I would like to talk about with anyone who’s like to. But Ezra is helpful, because here was a man, very knowledgeable of the law, but knew it was more important to practice it, before he ever taught it. I believe that can help keep us off the radar while amass spiritual wmds.
    church!

    I’m not sure if I understand the last sentence there but I certainly agree with what you said about Ezra. :lol:

    Oh and btw, welcome to the forum NEWB! ;)

    Its kinda funny, the past few weeks Ive been reading Jeremiah and Isaiah and now just started Ezikiel. It sounds like a lot of you guys are reading around the same area. HMMM. I really did not want to read this stuff but have felt God telling me to JUST DO IT. So I did it and it was kinda boring. But I know Im learning and now seeing that a lot of you are reading the same stuff is kinda weird actually.

    My wife & I thought about naming our 2nd son Ezekial. It means ‘God is my strength’. We felt led of the Lord to name him Elijah Gideon. Elijah means ‘the Lord is my God’ and Gideon means ‘Treecutter’. My first son’s name is Asher Gabriel. We like Hebrew names.

    Josiah, I like those names! Does Asher have a meaning too?

    Lately, just been doing in depth study on current pastor’s sermon. “Radical” series covers passages from the Gospels. It’s basically on being radical for the Gospel and how lives of many christians today have strayed from that and diving into the Gospels.

    really good series.

    I am reading 1 Peter. It is one of my favorite books because it offers such practical lifestyle advice. I am seeing more and more that God is much more concerned by how I live, than what I say.

    And are we after Him or His stuff? I believe in healing, prosperity, etc. but those things are secondary. I want to know how to become more like Jesus.

    agreed. A foundation of becoming (and not just saying) is necessary.

    i think that the modern church in the west has lost the practice of the spiritual disciplines. To many people wanting a feel good gospel. An ooey gooey faith. I’m not talking about something legalistic either. That’s the other abyss. I’m talking about the narrow path between the two.

    There are three areas of spiritual disciplines
    Internal
    External
    Corporate

    Some of the specific disciplines within the three are: fasting, silent prayer, scripture memorization, solitude, attending an assembly to name a few.
