Something Fresh and New

Tonight we started a new bible study.  But it really isn’t a bible study.  It’s really more of a journaling exercise.  I don’t really have my mind truly wrapped around what it is, but it’s something like this;
We’re given a chapter, say Acts 2.  We read it and then write about what it means to us.  What it means to me.  How does the Holy Spirit speak to me through it?  Is it relevant to what’s going on in my life right now?  Does it call to mind something from my past?  
The Lord uses every word of scripture to speak to us.  We should expect to hear from Him and to interact with Him every time we open the bible.  And that’s part of what this experiment is about, interacting with the Lord in a truly personal way.
It will also be used as an opportunity to build up and edify each other.  When we gather together, either biweekly or once a month, we will share what the Lord has shown us and compare notes.  If it’s that we’re all using the same scripture verses then it will be so fascinating to see how each of us interprets that verse.
Then, we will post them on our blogs and hopefully share them with the blogosphere.  
That way we are also using them as witnessing tools.
I’m excited!
