In the past I was just a wild cowgirl in terms of my bible study, but this year I wanted to be more organized. I found a great reading plan with "The Bible Project" I simply love their videos. Check them out here
This non profit group creates short animated videos of the bible. The videos help me to understand on a much deeper level when it comes to reading, memorizing, and applying the text. Another companion piece are the ... Bible summaries. Check here for the complete list of twitter messages.
Why are the Bible Summaries so special? This guy was able to share the entire bible ...chapter by chapter in one year using Twitter. The task was done using 140 characters or less. It took him 3 years. From Aug 2010 to Nov 2013. I love the commitment. Smile I have added reading his posts to my daily bible study and simply love it!
Here are my bible notes and comments for Genesis Chapter 1. Short, Sweet, and To the Point
Gen1: God created the heavens, the earth and everything that lives. He made humankind in his image, and gave them charge over the earth. Click here for the Bible Project Video on Genesis Chapters 1 - 11
Key verses that stood out to me personally
- Gen 1:29-30 – Before Adam and Eve sinned...God gave us Herbs, Seeds, Fruit, Veggies, Green Plants, and Water for food to eat (NOT ANIMALS) – God did not ok animals as food for us to eat until Gen 9:2-4 after the flood.
- In Gen 9:2-4 – God declared He was now providing animals as good to eat, just like grain and vegetables, but for us to not to eat any meat that still had the lifeblood in it. (Vampires need not apply - LOL)
How I want to apply this to my life?
This year I want to take my eating habits back to its roots or at least try to ensure there are more Herbs and Veggies in my diet. I have been reading up on a woman named: Annette Larkins. Mrs. Larkins is estimated 70 years old and lives a raw food life style. Hearing her story inspired me to learn more about using more not all raw foods in my diet as a remedy to health and wellness. Remember my stronghold: gluttony and money has always been my main path to willfully sinning. Check her website out here
