The Bible in my life

"My trust in God's word is greater, my submission to God's word is deeper, and my love of God's word is sweeter as a result of reading this book. For these reasons, I cannot recommend it highly enough'

David Platt on 'Taking God at his word'

I am giving a talk as part of a Lent series for 'Churches together in Barnes' and the title I have been given is 'The Bible in my life.'

I often like to read a new book about a subject area I am speaking on and spotted this on the book table last Friday. I think it will be good sustenance for me as I prepare this talk and might be a good Lent read if you are looking for something to ignite your Bible reading.

I am not sure I have the talk honed yet but my four points (which may well change) are:

1. The Bible reveals Jesus
2. The Bible has authority
3. The Bible speaks and calls
4. The Bible points us to the Good news

I am giving the talk at HT Barnes @ 7.30-9pm on Thursday 18th February and you are very welcome to come and listen.
