Re: Verse reading–Psalm 119:9-16; Acts 17:10-12; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (day one) 
44 summers ago.  I was 17 years old.  A believer for only a few months, I was on a retreat with the Campus Crusade for Christ group through whom I had first heard the invitation of grace.  The retreat center had a book table.  “See that Bible?” my friend said.  “Buy it and begin reading it every day.”  I did, and all these years later I look back with wonder at the life-changing power of that simple turning point.  My experience has been like Ezekiel’s. “Son of man. . . eat this scroll. . . I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth.”  (Ezekiel 3:1,3)  Again and again, I have found in Scripture the wisdom, challenge, conviction and hope of an Eternal mind.  Today we begin a summer series of studies on spiritual disciplines.  My heart rejoices that the first discipline is Bible study.  Ancient path.  Way of freedom.  Searching the Scripture, together.  Sweet!
