I just want to thank Colin Smith for using his gift for teaching the Bible. His insights are so amazing, I have been listening to his podcast every time I take my walk & it has been the biggest blessing ever! I have enjoyed listening to “Heaven, So Near – So Far.”
I grew up in the church but I never saw the love Jesus showed to Judas. I always imagined Jesus having a frown (like the look on a parent’s face when they are disappointed in or fed up with their child) on His face as He gave Judas the bread that he dipped in the whatever it was. I never realized that the giving of the sopped bread was a display of His love for Judas. You know, you hear those things so many times & seeing the “frown” on Jesus’ face was what I had ingrained in my head ever since I was a kid because Judas was about to do the unthinkable.
Like I said, it never dawned on me that the giving of the sopped bread was Jesus showing His love, wow! What a loving Savior we have! That was one example of how I learn something new from Colin Smith every time I listen to him. I am ordering the book & audio because I have so much enjoyed listening to it on the podcast plus I have a prodigal child, so I think it will be good for him to listen to it too. I have also ordered the one about the thief on the cross as well. So I plan on having our family listen to both. If you could pray for my son, his name is Sam, I would be in much appreciation. But thanks again Colin for letting the Lord use you! The truths that you have “unlocked” have been such a blessing to me. I can’t thank you enough for putting the time in & hard work to study God’s word so you can unlock these truths for people like me. What a blessing. I thank God for you!
