Hey, everybody. I hope you have had a chance to read Ezra and consider the questions I posted for you. When we study God's Word, there a couple of ways to go about it.
First, we can research, by reading commentaries to see what scholars and theologians have written. That's fine, because none of us, to my knowledge, is a Bible scholar!!
But, we can also do an "inductive" study. That means, pray and read and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you. You see, since the Holy Spirit indwells each believer, we are all capable of being instruments of His wisdom. Yeah, God!
So, as I have invited everyone to share what you learn, it is not meant to intimidate anyone. On the contrary! God uses each of our unique personalites and experiences to bring clarity and meaning to our study. Put yourself into the passage. What does it speak to you? What would you be feeling in the situation? Either as one of the key individuals, or as an observer? What lesson is there to be applied to our lives today, here and now?
I am always so blessed by hearing the "whisperings of God's Spirit" through the insights of others. Please join in the discussion!
Have a blessed day.
