020: Loving God & His Word with Jen Wilkin

 

“The Bible is the story of God!”

God wrote the Bible to reveal Himself to you. Whether you have spent years in His Word or are wondering where to begin, God has more to speak to you.

In this episode, Jen Wilkin, author and teacher of multiple Bible studies, encourages us to personally study the Bible with both our hearts and our minds. Jen shares how we, as Christian women, can keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible.

Important Takeaways from Show

  • There is a cost to every commitment we make. We are always weighing what is worth it.
  • We all have different capacities and family lives which influences what God is calling us to in each season.
  • What begins as a thought exercise in studying God’s Word should move to our hearts.
  • Thought Level Interaction: Coming to the Word expectant that thinking deeply and rightly about God will transform our desires and emotions so that they align with the truth of who God is.
  • Desire Level Impact: The Holy Spirit dwelling in us takes the words of Scripture and uses them to reshape us.
  • Reading a section of the Bible repetitively helps us to take in the underlying theme and purpose.
  • The Bible reveals that God is both near and transcendent.
  • Every part of the Bible is designed to tell us about God and His story, revealing who we are as His image bearers.
  • The deeper we get into Scripture, the more we recognize how much more there is to learn.
  • The Holy Spirit comes along side of us with His power as we study Scripture and He leads us into all truth.
  • We have to look to God’s all-sufficiency, rather than our own inability.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. ~ Hebrews 4:12
