Studying the Scriptures

I'm part of a small group on campus, and we're studying the Gospel of John. As college students, we're all interested in bringing Christ into our daily life and finding new ways to serve Him in the midst of homework, job decisions, and being bombarded with false worldviews. As part of this search for ways to grow in Christ, we thought it would be great if we took a verse from our study and think/incorporate it throughout the week. One guy, Scott, called it "lifework" because he didn't like the word "homework."
So this was the verse we chose a couple of weeks ago:
John 5:39 "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me," BibleGateway

It is a good challenge to find Christ in every passage I read. It is especially fun to find Christ in the Old Testament, for they testify of Him, but not so explicitly as the New Testament.

Friday Vocabulary - Vermiculate

In the last Friday Vocabulary I did, I had a quote from The Pilgrim's Regress and I defined a word that was in it. Well, there's another word in the same quote that I want to define this time. The word is vermiculate. I'm not going to repost the whole quote, just the part with the word in it so you will have some context.
The Landlord does not make the blackness. The blackness is there already wherever the taste of mountain-apple has created the vermiculate will.

So what does vermiculate mean? Vermiculate basically means wormy So what the guide is saying is that
the blackness is wherever the taste of mountain-apple has created a wormy will
There are other meanings for vermiculate like being wormlike in shape or appearance, having wavy or winding markings like worms or worm tracks, and moving like a worm.
That's all for now.

Wednesday Quote

Kirk had a test today so I don't think she was thinking about the quote she was supposed to do. So I'm doing it for her. :)
The quote for today comes from Charles Spurgeon. I found it on Girl Talk in this post.

“No man can do me a truer kindness in this world than to pray for me.”
Charles Spurgeon

Which I think is true for all of us.
That's it for now! I have to go study for the SAT now.Bye!!
