We have amazing power and strength at our fingertips through understanding and applying God's word to our lives. This discipline looks at the prayerful deliberation of and digging into the Scriptures in more than just a cursory read.
"Being a devoted listener to Bible teaching and preaching means more than passively absorbing what we hear. Devout listeners know that Chris is present and that what we hear could change our lives. That said, it also means that we listen with critical, curious ears, eager to learn and discover more. And it means that we also keep our eyes toward Christ and our ears tuned to what the Holy Spirit might want to convict us on or challenge us with."
-Caryn Rivadeneira, "Devoted Listening to Scripture"
