How to get the most from this site

My goal for this site, is for it to become a resource to you.  In most cases, I will cite plenty of scripture and also go back to the original language and bring out the shades of meaning that don’t quite come through in the English language.

The posts are spaced out about a week apart.  So there is plenty of time for you to go back through the scriptures and to meditate upon them as you study.  I want and joyously invite you to check the scriptures for yourself to see if what I am saying is true.  I want God’s word to come alive within you.  If this site helps you to study and to learn, and then live a victorious life in Christ, then I will have succeeded.

In closing, may I present you with one of my favorite verses in the entire bible:

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

At first glance, that verse sounds like it’s saying that you should never speak the word of God.  Actually, it is quite the opposite.  What is really being said, is not that you shouldn’t speak the word, but the word will always be upon your lips so that it “never departs”.  You shall meditate in the word day and night.  My friend, this is the key to understanding God’s word.  So take the scriptures I give you and speak them, think about them and let God make them come alive within your heart. – Mel
