Week 6: Gospel'ing  How To Spend Time with Your Bible



Read and Consider the Following Passages of Scripture Together:

Jesus answered them, ‘I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name bear witness about me, but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
John 10:25-27


Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart...You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently...With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!...Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law...My soul is consumed with longing for your rules at all times...Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways...I find my delight in your commandments, which I love...When I think of your rules from of old, I take comfort, O LORD...How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalm 119:2, 4, 10, 18, 20, 37, 47, 52, 103
