Study? Study!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there's something I feel I need to mention.

As I let you know yesterday and at some other times, my deceased husband Gordon was a born again Christian.

For many years he knew I read God's Word, the Bible.

But, the first year we were married, Gordon knew that even though I read a large Bible at home, he was aware that I felt I should have gotten a smaller Bible, that would easily fit in my purse.

So, that Christmas, I received a lovely gift from him.

Yes, it was a a Bible that I truly felt I needed.

And, on the page where the Bible begins, he wrote a comment/message:

December 25.

To Lynn:

II Timothy 2:15

Love Always,
Your Husband.
Gordon

Sigh...

Thinking about that, made me share with you... 2 Timothy 2:15, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.".

Amen!  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Gordon knew that I was happy receiving that new Bible.  Especially, since he knew that I read God's Word, in the larger Bible I had, but was happy to have received that lovely gift from him. 

Why?

He knew that I would be abe to easily carry it with me.

Yes, I have taken it with me, to worship with church family.

However, I have always taken it with me even when I've traveled.  Not just with him, when he was alive.  But, I've taken it with me, even when I've traveled alone, after his life ended.

Do you read God's Word... the Bible?

Hopefully, you do.

If you haven't yet read the Bible, then I would suggest you begin reading the New Testament portion of the Bible.

Begin reading the book of John... and then read to the end of the Bible. 

When you've completely read it all, then you can begin reading the Bible from the book of Genesis, in the Old Testament portion of the Bible... and read it to the end if the Bible, again... over and over again.  

If you do, I believe God will bless you.

Thank you, for doing that!

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
