Every year during lent I tell myself that I will read my bible more and join an online bible study group to try my best to deepen my relationship with Jesus. This year I had help from a wonderful book written by Judy Huitt, a Bible-study teacher, seminar leader and Christian mentor. In her new book, “Our Beloved, Our Friend, Explore the Word, Experience Jesus, Share His Love,” Huitt presents forty Bible-study meditations in an easy-to-use method designed as an aid for deepening prayer and illuminating the Word.
When you read your bible it is important to be able to understand how that relates to your life. By deepening your relationship with Jesus and forming a more intimate friendship with the Lord you can have a better understanding of scripture. This book encourages the reader to spend more time reading the bible in order to nurture their relationship with God like their human relationships – through communication and quality time.
Huitt says, “Through His Word, readers will have the opportunity to fall more deeply in love with Jesus and walk more closely with Him – or possibly meet Him for the first time. They will be encouraged and equipped to naturally share Him and His transforming love with others in all they say and do.”
I keep “Our Beloved, Our Friend,” right next to my Bible and use it as a reference guide for my daily scripture readings. If your Bible is collecting dust it isn’t too late to start deepening your relationship with the Lord. “Our Beloved, Our Friend,” is the perfect reference guide for those just beginning their Bible study journey and for those whom are regular readers of scripture.
“Jesus wanted me to share how He touched me and changed me through His Word and His limitless, liberating love – which He has for All of us,” Huitt says. “He wanted me to share the way He taught me to explore and dig into the Word, experience Jesus and share His love so others can, too.”
