But be sure you live out the message and do not merely listen to it and so deceive yourselves. For if someone merely listens to the message and does not live it out, he is like someone who gazes at his own face in a mirror. For he gazes at himself and then goes out and immediately forgets what sort of person he was. But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out — he will be blessed in what he does. James 1:22-25 (NET)

The Bible is the perfect mirror. When we read it, it shows us what kind of people we really are. It also shows us how God can fix our problems. This website is meant to encourage reading and studying your Bible as well as providing some materials to help you in your study.

You can read articles I have written on various subjects.

You may also be interested in another project of mine: The Daily Bible Reading podcast.

My latest material is found in Facebook Live videos of classes I am teaching. You can watch them and participate live on Tuesdays and Thursdays at https://www.facebook.com/joelsbiblelessons/. You can see all the recorded videos there or see them organized a little better on the video page of this site. If you are signed into Facebook, you can Like the page and should be notified when something new is posted there.
