At this very busy time of year, perhaps your study of the Word has suffered. It’s easy to have happen. But it’s necessary to be diligent in devoting time to prayer and Bible study or the neglect will find us depressed and far from our Lord very quickly. Our relationship with Jesus has to be lovingly tended.
As an encouragement along these lines, I’d like to introduce you to a radio broadcast and blog, Women in the Word (click on the link to go to the site). I’ve been richly blessed by the Biblical teaching I’ve heard as I’ve listened locally, but you can get this rich content through their blog, even though you don’t live, as I do, where you can pick up the radio station. Please visit this site and study the Word with Pam, Rebecca and Sarah. On their blog one of the helps you will find is the current study on 1 John along with study notes, as well as their discussion of the text. I encourage you to join me as we become more and more diligent Women in the Word.
1 John 2:15-17–“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.”
