This week's Bible study tip is:
Supplement your Scripture reading with "Christian Living" books.
These books are set up to bring Scriptural principles that you may not have thought of before to your attention, and to challenge you to apply these to your life in specific ways.
Personally, two authors I definitely reccomend you check out are John Eldredge and A.W. Tozer - both write clearly (not all muddled with theological jargon), have "radical" ideas (stuff that actually strikes you, rather than just run-of-the-mill stuff), and (based on what I've read so far) their teachings are fully in line with Scripture.
Also, I'd recommend asking your pastor or a trusted, mature Christian for other author recommendations (there are a lot of wolves out there who write these books, so you gotta be careful).
For this week's video, I'd like to share another music video: "Where I Belong" by Building 429
Finally, prayer requests.
Mine for the week is: There's a certain doctrinal issue I'm trying to work through right now and figure out what the Biblical truth is. Please pray that God will lead me to the correct conclusion.
Do you have anything you'd like prayer for? Please let me know by leaving a comment. :-)
