Months ago I stumbled upon this book. Bought it. Put it on my shelf until I had time to dive into it.
Dive Deeper: Finding Deep Faith Beyond Shallow Religion by Jenifer Jernigan
Monday I picked this book up for the first time since it was placed on my book shelf and began to read it. Tuesday I sat down for Lesson 1 which went through Ephesians 1:1-2:
1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
To God’s holy people in Ephesus,[a] the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
When I originally saw that the entire chapter was over these two verses I wasn’t too excited, but as I started to follow the D.I.V.E. acronym I was excited about these two verses. D.I.V.E stands for Define, Investigate, Visualize, Embrace. With each set of scripture Jernigan walks you through these steps.
It has been YEARS since I have spent the time to break down scripture this deeply. It had been two hours before I even looked at the clock during my devotional time on Tuesday. It was amazing! I am excited to get back into Ephesians today with Jernigan by my side. I highly recommend this book if you are needing to ignite a passion for God’s word again in your life, if you are wanting to learn how to study God’s word for yourself, if you just want to know God more!
