Ps 119 gives us a picture of a man who delights in the law of the Lord, and desires it. What will that person look like? We used Ps 119 as a basis for our reflection, as we compared and contrasted our own attitudes towards Bible reading, evident from the Fellowship Survey we did in Oct 2017.
In Judges 6:11-40, the life of Gideon shows us a man who was too fearful to stand up when God called upon him to do His will. Repeatedly, God had to show him His power, and redefine him by His grace. Grace makes us grow up.
