milking stool meetings: john 2 & 3

How'd it go with two chapters? Too much? Or just right? Good news is next week we're back down to one.

But for now, the vlog:

And now that you've got my take on the themes and balance that make up John 2&3, it's you're turn to share:

In closing, next week we're going to be looking at John 4. The notes are going to be different in that it'll be focusing on a single verse or chunk and tear it apart. For those of you that love staying in those college ruled lines, this is going to push your comfort level.
We're going to take a chunk of text -in this case I used two verses (John 3:16&17)- write it in the middle of the page and then connect it to the truths we know of God and Christ. Basically, this is going to make the application of text directly to your life very undeniable.

Just like Christ was relevant to the world 2000 years ago, He is to you now.
Of course feel free to highlight, underline, bold, circle the things that you feel most moved by. I waited to highlight until the end as sort of a final review over the text. 

Doesn't it look fun?

And the verse for the week: 
"The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, 
but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. 
So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." 
-John 3:8

    Your notes are WAY more festive than mine. :)

  2. I love the metaphor of Siri.. it really helped "drive home" John 2 + 3 for me :) Also, the closing line is just perfect. It never ceases to amaze me: no matter who we are, or where we're at in life, there's always pieces of hope to be found in His words!

    PS - I owe you an email, but I'm still waiting on my study bible! UPS has some 'splaining to do, it should have been delivered by Tuesday! Fingers crossed it's waiting in the mailbox when I get home today.

  3. You should have seen my college notebooks... :)

  4. Girl I have come to realize that I live my life in metaphors... Like every little part in little metaphors. :)

    Ummm, I had a couple late deliveries from UPS too! Something about tough weather somewhere... I have to be honest, I'm in a little sunny soCal bubble.


Feel free to share with me... In fact, your words do more for me than mine for you.
