This morning I finished a nine-month project of reading the New Testament through, with an eye toward what it has to say about the role of obedience, fruit bearing, and perseverance in salvation. Three steno pads of notes, and my head is swimming with new insights and understandings. So many crucial passages you never hear preached or taught, at least not at face value.
Not sure what comes out of it. I’ve got a lot of writing to do. One thing I know for sure: The Word has changed me — again.
