Message In A Bible

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” ~2 Timothy 3:16-17

I’m sure you are familiar with the imagery of a message in a bottle. 

Well, I have two sons and two bibles so I leave messages in each to serve as my proverbial bottle. 

When it is my time to go, I have bequeathed each son a bible. 

I hope that they seek guidance and encouragement in the Word of God. And in doing so, they will find my messages ☺️.

In recent years, I’ve changed how I read the Bible. I am more “interactive.” Here are a few things I do: 

  I use stickers to denote important scriptures. 

  Various color highlighters help me to mark the text as well. 
  Dating scripture is a tip I picked up from Dr. Charles Stanley. I date scriptures when I feel like God is asking me to pay particular attention to one of them. 
  I also take notes directly on the page for future reference. 
  
  I also enrich the experience by using a journal, devotional reading, and other Christian tools. 

I enjoy changing up the scenery as well.
