I don’t Get it!
As I was meeting with some students recently, we discussed some topics that they believed are important for them to continue to learn about. One of those topics was the Bible and specifically how to understand what they are reading. The Bible is an amazing book that is easy enough for a five year old to understand but complex enough for an adult to continue digging in for a lifetime. How our young people learn to read their bibles now is critical to their continued and future growth. How would you respond? How have you responded to your kids? I make reference to one book that has been a help to me, and one that I have taken young people through in the past. The book is titled, Knowing Scripture, by R.C. Sproul. Dr. Sproul is someone I enjoy to read because he has a gift for taking the difficult and presenting it to us in a way that seems understandable. I am also uploading three messages of a six-part series by Alistair Begg titled “Why Bother with the Bible?” As followers of Jesus we never stop learning and growing. I hope you will take some time and check out some of these resources. If you are a parent or grandparent, how you respond to your child’s or grandchild’s question about the Bible will probably have a greater impact than any paid minister. May we all be ready to make a defense to anyone who asks us for the reason for the hope that is in us.
