One Liners

Nov 14, 2017  |     |   General

     The other night, I met with Jack for discipleship. He is doing well, in the middle of the Intermediate Level of the New Life Recovery Program, which means he has lots of Bible packets to fill out. I have been enjoying reading his answers. If you put them together, it would be a well-written testimony.
     I also am going through his memory verses with him. He tells me he can’t memorize them, so he writes each one ten times. One of his verses was out of Proverbs. His translation was a one liner. In my NKJV it says,

Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls. – Proverbs 25:28

     I challenged him to quote this verse without looking. He did perfectly. Then I taught him another verse that was a one liner, John 11:35 (Jesus wept). Again, I challenged him to recite this verse. He nailed it! Then I told him even big verses are full of one liners. It may be three or four sentences, but they are one line at a time. Jack smiled. 
     I share this because I want you all to know how personable these times of discipleship are. It is good stuff. Keep our program men and women in your prayers. The program should be encouraging and even fun. Praise God that we get to do what we do.
