One on John Paton and the other on John Bunyan (12 and 13 on the list, they are well worth the listen).
I did not finish Bunyan. About half way through the message I began to think about the reality of suffering in the believer’s life. So I had a desire to get into 1 Peter, the challenge being I was driving and it is not a great idea to read the Bible while doing so. I have done it. I don’t any more. I don’t recommend it.
So I opened YouVersion, actually had to download it from the cloud. I pulled over and figured out how to have the app read 1 Peter to me. I listened to 1 Peter about 15 times. You have probably done this. I have listened to the Bible on occasion but never like this.
I am more of visual and kinetic learner. But, I found myself identifying themes in the book. I used the voice memo app to take notes on what I was hearing. I made note of things that I want to pursue in a study of 1 Peter.
It was a good use of several hours. I could have listened to Piper. That is good. But listening to Peter is better. He is inspired; Piper is good, not inspired.
In Ephesians 5:15 – 16 (KJV), Paul exhorts us to redeem the time. Listening to the Word whilst road tripping, may fit that bill.
