One of the things I have been doing over the past year is listening to the Bible as I drive to and from school. I live 110km from my school I work at, so I have to find things to keep me entertained on the 75 minute drive.
I have listened to all of the New Testament in the last year and I am on my second go. The other day on my drive home I listened to Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians. I turned on Galatians as I left school and as I drove down my street I finished Colossians.
Recently as I was driving it really hit me afresh that all of these books are actually letters that were read out to the churches at the time. Not everyone could read or write, but they could all listen and take it in. So in a way I am hearing the text just like the people 2000 years ago.
I actually use the YouVersion Bible app as it connects via Bluetooth to my car sound system. I set it up before I leave and I can put my phone in the glovebox, so I am not tempted to look at it while driving. We have big fines for this where I live and it is not safe too!
Next time you are going on a longer drive I would encourage you to give it a go. It is a great way to be filled up on God’s Word and renewing your mind as you drive.
Just before I finish I need to make comment on the beautiful red Corvette Stingray pictured above. Yes it is me, but no it is not my car sadly. Someone drove through town and I got talking to them. He asked if I wanted to have a photo in it. I jumped at the chance!
