NewLSFB311: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 1 Samuel 26 and 27

Once more, David passes on an opportunity to take out Saul, because David refuses to touch God’s anointed, even though he knows that Saul is unjustly after his blood. David knows that God has promised to give the throne to him, and he won’t force the issue by taking matters into his own hands. Have…

NewLSFB309: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 1 Timothy 1-2

Some background might be in order before we start 1 Timothy. Up to this point, Paul’s letters have been directed at specific churches. Beginning now with 1 Timothy, Paul’s letters are now directed at individuals. There are two letters to Timothy, a letter to Titus, and one to Philemon. Like Paul, Timothy and Titus were…

NewLSFB307: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – Job 8

I’m pretty sure that if Bildad was my friend, that friendship would’ve ended with this speech of his. He starts off by saying, in essence, “Are you through yet? You are talking nonsense.” Granted, I’m not in Job’s position right now, but I was, to a lesser extent a couple years ago. I’ll get to…

NewLSFB302: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 1 Samuel 21 and 22

Did you notice what happened with the Doeg situation? David is running from Saul, and he goes to the priest Ahimilech, because this is where the Tabernacle now is, since Shiloh has been deserted. David wants to get a word from God. Ahimilech asks David why he’s there, and David lies to him. He tells…

NewLSFB301: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – Job 4 and 5

Don’t you just love it when someone starts a conversation with you by saying, “Can I say something to you without you getting mad?” You know it’s going to be one of those conversations. That’s how Eliphaz, one of three friends that came to visit Job, began his discourse. That’s just how I would want…

NewLSFB300: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – 1 Thessalonians 1-3

Just a short background on 1 Thessalonians before I share a few of my thoughts from today’s reading: It is thought by many scholars that this is the oldest of Paul’s letters (or epistles) to the churches. Thessalonica was the major city in Macedonia when Paul wrote to the church there. The church had as…

NewLSFB299: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – Job 2 and 3

I want to focus on the exchange between Job and his wife in chapter 2, verses 9 and 10. It said: “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and…

NewLSFB298: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – Colossians 3 and 4

The main verse that just caused me to almost stand up and cheer was chapter 3, verse 2. Here it is again: “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” Remember, yesterday I spent the entire day writing and producing an episode of the Lifespring! podcast dealing with the SCOTUS decision…

NewLSFB290: The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible – Song of Solomon 4-6

As you probably know, this book can be read from at least two levels: As just an account of a bride and groom from the purely human level, or as an allegory of the love of Christ for the church. Both interpretations are beautiful, and both have merit. As I was studying it again, in…
