From time to time I enjoy a few (or a bag) of Oreos. While they are enjoyable, they are not nourishing. The hymns of old are full of rich nourishing doctrine that help form a strong foundation for the believer. This week I use Rend Collective’s rendition of “You Are My Vision,” a classic hymn versified by Eleanor Hull in 1912.
Join me as I uncover the Scriptural recipe for a nourishing meal at the table of God.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Read in context
- Read in several translations
- Review the section headings
- The history of hymns in my own life
- How light on doctrine much of Christian music can be these days
- A verse on vision – Proverbs 29:18
- Making connections with God’s Word in such a way that you SEE what God is teaching
- Focusing on finding connections to the point where you train yourself to see them
- Casting aside our own plan for Christ alone – Proverbs 19:21
- God’s presence my light – Psalm 27:1
- God as the only source of wisdom – Proverbs 2:6
- “You dwell inside me, together we’re one” – 1 Timothy 1:14
- The Lord is our inheritance – Deuteronomy 18:2, 1 Peter 2:9
- Finding the Scripture we’re looking for by searching for a phrase and typing “Scripture” at the end of our search
