  • Having an effective strategy for reading the Bible can make the difference between giving up and staying on course. One such method is called the PRIMA process. PRIMA is an acronym, with each letter standing for a step in studying the Bible.

    Pray. Begin with a prayer that your time with the Bible will draw you closer to God.

    Read attentively, trying to hear the words as if for the first time. Reading the passage aloud can help with this.

  • Thinking Out Loud

    Between the ages of 11 and 18, I spent a lot of time outdoors. It was not unheard of for me to spend as much as three months of a year “under canvas,” as we called camping. From the Boundary Waters of Minnesota and Canada to the Rio Grande border with Mexico, I traveled – hiking, canoeing, fishing, camping. And I shared this love of the outdoors with my children as they grew up.

    There are so many memories.

  • Hope is one of the most powerful factors in human endeavor. Farmers plow the soil and sow seeds in hope of a good harvest. Merchants stock their shelves in the hope of sales. Prisoners employ attorneys to defend them in court in the hope of freedom or a light sentence. The Christian’s hope is that city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Our hope is laid up in heaven. This hope is an anchor of souls, it stabilizes our lives, gives us security the world does not and cannot know. Hope provides incentive for both zeal and steadfastness in righteous living.

  • This phrase comes from a passage found in II Chronicles 20:5-19. Jehoshaphat had been praying to God concerning a certain battle. God answered him and said, “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s” (v. 15). Can you think of other things that are not ours, but God’s?
