Another great resource

It never ceases to amaze me how God brings things into our lives at the perfect time.  I have now been reading and studying the book of Philippians for two months and honestly I feel like I am just getting started.

Last Friday I read a tweet from John Piper that he was about to teach the book of Philippians at a conference starting that evening.  I checked out the link and it turns out that he was planning on teaching through the entire book of Philippians verse by verse over the course of 5 sessions.  So this past weekend I watched some of the sessions and they fired up my desire to stay in this book. 

In the first session John Piper starts off the evening by quoting the entire book from memory, and the passion and emotion in his voice, inspired me to really double up my efforts at memorization.  So far I have half of the verses I had planned to memorize committed to memory, so I still have a ways to go in this regard.

Here is the link to the conference audio, it is well worth the time to take a listen.
