Fulfilled

Tonight was the third meeting of ten for the current Dads Teach the Bible workshop.  This is the eighth time I have done this.  Every time the effort has been validated by something that has occurred in the men’s life.  It happened again tonight.
You ever feel like you just hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth to win the game?  Thoughts at DTTB.
We were having a discussion on the benefits of the method we have been working on for the past two weeks.  One of the men shared that the last two weeks has been a paradigm shift in his approach and understanding of the Bible.  This is from a guy who literally has been in the church his entire life.

What he meant by that is that the simple process which he has applied to 2 Peter and Jonah in the past two weeks has opened up the Word for him.  He now has confidence that he can do this with any of the books, and with two exceptions, Psalms and Proverbs, he certainly can.

I am OK with that.  If we had to end the workshop now, I have fulfilled my purpose.

Here is a guy that was struggling to get into the Word.  He knew he needed to.  He just did not have a clue how to start.  We gave him a structure to follow and he took off, even doing the optional book for tonight.

It was good.
