This 'n That {Part 2}

Here are some more resources to help you with your Bible Bee study!

A Bible Bee alumna has been writing about each week of the study on her blog.  The posts are always really good (and the photography is, too!).  Her most recent post is about how we have fullness of joy by abiding in Christ.

Zach Baas, a Senior contestant, has a page on his website where he shares study resources, including resources like Blue Letter Bible that can be used every year and Quizlet sets specific for Bible Bee Locals 2016.  Check out his website at http://zachbaas.com/forthebee/.

A friend of mine shared some great notes from John MacArthur's commentary on her blog.  This part of the commentary is based off of John 14:14, which tells us that if we ask anything in Jesus' name, He will do it.  "What praying in Jesus’ name really means is that we should pray as if our Lord Himself were doing the asking."  How true!

One of my favorite albums is based on the book of Romans. And one of my favorite songs from that album is based on Romans 8:31-39.   The song is a beautiful reminder that nothing can separate us from God's love.  Make sure you have the lists in Romans 8:35-39 nailed before you listen to this, though :).

If you don't already have a Scripture Typer account, be sure to get one!  Using Scripture Typer by itself will not be enough to know your verses word-perfect, but it's a fun supplement.  If you join the Bible Bee group, you'll also be sure to hear about all the latest Bible Bee news from the Message Wall.   The groups rankings offer some friendly competition, too.

Joshua Bontrager, who placed fourth last year at Nationals in the Senior division, wrote some study tips on his family's blog.  I think that we all need the reminder of the 6th tip: "Remember the purpose of studying God's Word: to know Him more."  With only a little more than two weeks until Locals, it's very easy to get sidetracked by the competition and wondering whether this or that will be on the test.  But in the end, what really matters is that we honor God through it all and grow to have a greater love for Him.

Yes, I did say just a little more than two weeks.  And now I should probably go study before I have time to think about the competition.
