The latest Christian conference or workshop, including mine, will not render you a spiritual giant. Hopefully you will be equipped with some new skills. But that equipping will not help you much if you do not engage in the practice of using the skills. Getting the latest book or notebook may fill your shelves but it will not fill your life or solve your challenges.
Let me say this though, if you are going to conferences and workshops and you do not know how to study the Bible for yourself - by that I mean independent of a study Bible, a fill in the blank workbook, or a commentary – you are not doing yourself any favors.
