Hi, I’m Mike Gantt and this is my week in review for the week ending Friday, August 8, 2014. The purpose of this podcast is to review all that I have published in the previous week through my blogs, my podcasts, other social media such as Twitter, and, sometimes, even my comments on the blogs of other people.
To paraphrase Paul from Philippians 3:1, “To say the same things again is no trouble for me, and it is a safeguard for you.” Moreover, Hebrews 2:1 says that “we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.” That is, there’s a tendency to forget what we’ve learned unless we review it. And in several places in the Gospels, including Matthew 13:12, Jesus said, “Whoever has, to him shall more be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.” Thus, reviewing what we’ve learned not only helps us to retain it, it’s also the way we learn new things from God. “Out of the old comes something new, and out of both come all things true – at least when it comes to the things of God.” Let’s therefore now go over the things we’ve heard in the last week and see how much we have retained, how much we can retain, and how much more we’re able to gain.
