Poor excuse, I know.
But this would be a good problem, in the sense that I’m headed in the right direction.
I find myself wanting to study “too many” passages. (This really isn’t a bad thing, I promise.)
I have determined to set out on a quest to establish a more efficient time management system.
I must make more time for studying the Word. Period.
I find that 1 Peter is a very important and relevant letter. I also find that 1 John is very practical (not to mention the fact that I need to finish studying it for Home Fellowship on Thursday). Which one, which one?
Tomorrow morning will begin my first experiment with a new effort at time management. I believe I shall begin the day with 1 John. Currently, I am studying 1 John 2:15-24. I hope verses 15-17 will help me start the day with an eternal, godly perspective on how I ought to live for Christ.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. 1 John 2:15-17
My inspiration for reading 1 Peter comes from the XL Conference (of which I attended last week). There is so much I have yet to learn from this letter…even after sitting under such great teaching from the XL Board!
