Alpha Episode 6. How & Why Should I Read The Bible?




The inspiration for this dish comes from Psalm 19 7- 11 and 1Peter 2:2


The law of the Lord is perfect,

refreshing the soul.

The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,

making wise the simple.

The precepts of the Lord are right,

giving joy to the heart.

The commands of the Lord are radiant,

giving light to the eyes.


The fear of the Lord is pure,

enduring forever.

The decrees of the Lord are firm,

and all of them are righteous.

They are more precious than gold,

than much pure gold;

they are sweeter than honey,

than honey from the honeycomb.

By them your servant is warned;

in keeping them there is great reward.


~Psalm 19: 7-11


1Peter 2:2 Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation.
