BRT – 1 & 2 Thessalonians

1 Thes 4:11 “make it your ambition…work with your hands…so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders”. I was reading this part on my way to work, where I work manually using a lot of my physical body to lift things and put them down. This verse was a really great encouragement…

BRT – Colossians

1.5&27 “Christ in you, the Hope of Glory”…As I was reading Colossians, the word hope stood out to me. When I consider the hope I have because of the gospel: eternal life, a glorious inheritance etc, my perspective on my current situation changes. I want to live my life in light of this hope. I…

BRT – Philipians

1.6 God will carry out to completion the good work in me. The longer I walk with God the more I see of my sin and brokenness. At first my sins are obvious and obviously bad, however as God continues His work in me I see me of my “respectable sins”. Pride, independence, unbelief, fear,…

BRT – Ephesians

1.17-18 To be honest there were several times in Ephesians where I was reminded about how hard Paul prays for the Church in Ephesus. It was a strong reminded to me about the power and importance of Prayer. Particularly as I come closer and closer to working with the Navigators and the Youth Camp this…

BRT – Galatians

1.10 “If I were trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ”…This verse challenged me about my expectations of being a Christian. I find it so easy to slip into thinking that I deserve a comfortable life. But actually being a Christian, does make people who don’t know God uncomfortable, and…

BRT – 2 Corinthians

I have not been blogging regularly, so the next few posts are all a catch up of the last few weeks (feels like months) of my BRT notes: 3:18: This verse connects the idea of “contemplating the Lord’s glory” and “being transformed into His image”. This verse was significant for me, because so often I…

BRT – 1 Corinthians

I love this book so much! There were four things to pick this week. One of them will be a really short blog post later this week (or at least that’s the plan), because it came up last year. 9.24-27…This one fits in very well with another post I made earlier, and a theme I…

BRT – Romans

Catch up…sorry no blogs for a while, just moved flat, finished exams, had a holiday, lots and lots of excuses…today I catch up on my BRT notes. I think keeping a record of these things is very beneficial for me, even if it takes a bit of effort to type them up. I will appreciate…

BRT – Acts of the Apostles

My 3 favorite things from Acts were: 12:5 “So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.” Over the past few weeks I have been really appreciating the prayers of my friends (mostly from Navs) and also from Church. I mentioned it in a post a few weeks ago.…
