  1. When I listen to the teachings, I like to pull up Bible Gateway website and pull up the Bible verses. I read them in several translations. Does anyone else have study habits to share? Joyce is right we need to study the Bible more often on our own than just listening to others teach. I’m guilty of this.

    Galatians 5:22-25Common English Bible (CEB)
    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against things like this. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the self with its passions and its desires.
    25 If we live by the Spirit, let’s follow the Spi

    Isaiah 61Common English Bible (CEB)
    Joyful proclamations
    61
    The Lord God’s spirit is upon me,
        because the Lord has anointed me.
    He has sent me
        to bring good news to the poor,
        to bind up the brokenhearted,
        to proclaim release for captives,
            and liberation for prisoners,
    2
        to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
            and a day of vindication for our God,
        to comfort all who mourn,
    3
        to provide for Zion’s mourners,
        to give them a crown in place of ashes,
        oil of joy in place of mourning,
        a mantle of praise in place of discouragement.
    They will be called Oaks of Righteousness,
        planted by the Lord to glorify himself.
    4
    They will rebuild the ancient ruins;
        they will restore formerly deserted places;
        they will renew ruined cities,
        places deserted in generations past.
    5
    Foreigners will stay and shepherd your sheep,
        and strangers will be your farmers and vinedressers.
    6
    You will be called The Priests of the Lord;
        Ministers of Our God, they will say about you.
    You will feed on the wealth of nations,
        and fatten[a] yourself on their riches.
    7
    Instead of shame, their[b] portion will be double;
        instead of disgrace, they will rejoice over their share.
    They will possess a double portion in their land;
        everlasting joy will be theirs.
    8
    I, the Lord, love justice;
        I hate robbery and dishonesty.[c]
    I will faithfully give them their wage,
        and make with them an enduring covenant.
    9
    Their offspring will be known among the nations,
        and their descendants among the peoples.
    All who see them will recognize
        that they are a people blessed by the Lord.
    10
    I surely rejoice in the Lord;
        my heart is joyful because of my God,
        because he has clothed me with clothes of victory,
        wrapped me in a robe of righteousness
        like a bridegroom in a priestly crown,
        and like a bride adorned in jewelry.
    11
    As the earth puts out its growth,
        and as a garden grows its seeds,
        so the Lord God will grow righteousness and praise before all the nations.

  2. Great point Janet. It is good to look up scripture for ourselves. I like the way Joyce uses the amplified Bible when she hands out scripture. It’s just a little further explanation. Thanks for plugging in all of the scriptures Joyce used in her teaching. That was a lot of work.
