Hanging Out With Daddy


Why do I study the Bible?

First, because I’m one of those strange people who loves to read and learn. If there’s an area of my life that my wife probably wishes I would stay away from a little more than I do, it’s my study desk. I sit down with the intent to read a couple chapters of the Bible, and before I know it, there are fifteen study resources laid out on the passage I was reading and six hours have come and gone.

    “We read the Gospels not merely to get a picture or an idea of Christ but to enter in and pass through the words of revelation to establish, by faith, a vital contact with the Christ Who dwells in our souls as God.” Thomas Merton.
    Hanging out with Daddy, indeed. That is why the hours fly by when praying and studying…we are not just doing an intellectual work, we are in the midst of a living, growing, loving relationship. Woo-Hoo!!! (I think that’s Greek.)
    Great post of encouragement.

      Thanks, Mrs. C! Hope you don’t mind but I used your response in a response over at CB. Your words were perfectly timed and perfectly stated in response to another response. That’s a lot of response! 🙂 I’m not so sure that everything I’ve said here wasn’t Greek!
