I believe this is a very important combination...
In reading in the gospels, which are always my favorite, because they are the chronicles of Jesus life on earth, we read about his ministry and the miracles and the people's responses to them… There's so much to learn from Jesus's amazing life and his unfathomable sacrifice for us all.
The Bible says in 1 John 4:17, As Jesus is, so are we in this world.
So if we're to be like Jesus, then we should study what Jesus did while he was on the earth. There is so much to learn, but we can ask for wisdom and great understanding because the Bible says God will give it to us liberally!
The story of Jesus healing the 10 men with leprosy in Luke 17 always surprises me.. there is so much to learn about God's grace, the abundant love of Jesus, about stepping out in faith, and about having a grateful heart.
