these are 2 neat little things. I heard that understanding the parables would be a big help to understanding dreams, and I heard of an atheist who just read the words in red in a Bible to know what Jesus said and it converted him. so i decided my next Bible study would be that. so im reading through the words in red, just Jesus actual words and skipping the rest. i plan to read them 7 times cuz its said you really know something well after you read it 7 times. im through 2 and wow does Jesus say alot that. This has been the greatest learning Bible study in a very short time. so if you are looking for a little devotional study just give this a shot, it's great stuff.
also God showed me a neat thing last week. one step discipleship. basically you do the things that challenge your faith. go just a little outside your comfort zone with what you do for God in any area. He showed me how this will put you into a cycle that is in the Bible and leads you to being a seasoned vet of a disciple. start at james 1:2-4 then flip over to romans 5:3-5 and it lays out the cycle of how trials lead to endurance and character and hope and being perfected and not disappointed. and a new believer can plug themselves into this cycle by trials that come through testing your faith. and you get into that situation by doing the little challenging things that bring you into tests of faith and trials when the world tries to stop you. all the rest just happens naturally, the believer just has to take that first step and repeat. and it works with any calling, gifting, or personality. that was a real neat thing i thought

it's great to see a man going hard after the Lord like that. God has plans for those who are going after Him now to be leaders in this next amazing move He is about to bring. if you look past the world imploding around us, you can see divine beauty in what God is doing now to set up the greatest revival this world has ever seen.
