I’m so excited about how the first week is going. You all are doing a great job sharing your thoughts on the readings each day. If you haven’t joined in the conversation on Facebook yet, please feel free to do so. Like I said before, everyone’s thoughts are welcome. What God’s Spirit reveals to you about a particular reading, may be different from what He shows me. I have really been blessed to hear what God is showing you so far, so please continue to share!
You may find it beneficial to look at the readings in several different versions this week. Lately, I am gaining a lot more insight into the Bible by reading how different versions translate particular verses. If you don’t have a stack of Bibles, don’t worry! You have access to many FREE versions at Crosswalk.com or Biblestudytools.com, or on the YouVersion app. You can find my reviews of them here and here, and direct links to them here (Crosswalk.com), here (Biblestudytools.com), and here (YouVersion).
I pray that God opens your eyes to see and ears to hear what He wants to teach you through our study of Philippians. Your presence here is no accident.
So grab your coffee and join us for week two of Philippians…
God bless. Have a great week!
