My own church does much for the new Christian, and that is good but I want more meat! I want more! More of God, more understanding and wisdom, from God. My daughters heard me talking about this and gave me an awesome book for my birthday. Its called "Unlocking the Bible" and I believe the author has many youtube videos out there also, which I want to look into. His name is David Pawson and he breaks down the books of the bible and fills them out with their history, their authorship, to whom its meant etc, but more so than each book's intro in your bible. He expounds more on what the different scholars have to say about the book and its meaning etc. So far, I am enjoying it.
Other books I am adding to my usual daily devotional are those written by AW Tozer. "The Pursuit of God" is amazing. It makes me realise how much more serious I need to be about seeking out the Lord. It makes me realise how much of God's power I have access to, and I don't even know it. He shows how shallow we are as Christians. He is especially concerned for us as church-goers, because church sometimes has become about entertaining us, and focusing on feeding us only the easy to accept stuff and not the real tough nitty-gritty stuff. (No specific church or group being discussed here, so no finger-pointing going on here by me 😋)
So, on my journey to digging deeper I am adding to my reading lists books by those men of God who have dug deeper before me. No more surface scratching for me. Dig deeper or go home Tracy!
