Excerpt from our Interview — BEEP Model

Kimberley

It’s wonderful to know that in your worst moment God still loves us.

 

Now, we’re going to move on to the BEEP round. Adam will give quick tips on the four disciplines of Bible study, eating healthy, exercise, and prayer or BEEP. So what do you have for us for a quick tip for Bible study?

 

Adam

A quick tip for Bible study is what I learned from my mentors. That is, anytime you approach the Word of God make the desire of your heart to truly encounter the Author. You’re not studying the Bible to know more. Knowledge puffs up but love edifies. So when I come to study the Bible, to study the Word of God I’m coming to know the Father, I’m coming to know God. And I’m seeking an encounter. Whether that’s a new insight, or whatever it is I’m coming to know Him more. So when we come to study the Bible from that approach—because I feel like that’s a big shift for some people—for some people feel like they’re obligated to read the Bible but if you’re coming to be transformed you can never go wrong. I’m not coming to the Bible to get a good sermon or to teach someone something (even though those are good things), my main passion is to come to the Bible to encounter my Creator.

 

Kimberley

Wonderful. And your quick tip for eating healthy?

 

Adam

That’s definitely a challenge, isn’t it? One of the simplest things I try to do is make it simple and not overcomplicated. Not trying to go in for a whole new diet change all at once. I know for my clients it doesn’t really work. It works for some people but one thing I would say is simply add greens. It’s as simple as that. Instead of trying to figure out what to take out or what other kinds of specific foods to add just simply add greens to each meal. Whether that’s spinach or romaine, or whatever it is, just try to add greens to as many meals as you can throughout the day. Because it’s the greens that are going to help alkalize the body. That would be my simple tip for people out there. Simply add greens to your meals.

 

Kimberley

And your quick tip for exercise?

 

Adam

Exercise? This is perfect timing to as it is the New Year. As far as exercise I would say it’s simple again. Just to start somewhere. Whether or not that’s simply going for a walk or going for a run. Because when you start small you are able to build momentum. So my tip for exercise—and there’re a bunch of different types of exercise—just do something. Whether that’s going for a walk, running, or go to the gym. You don’t need to overanalyze it. Sometimes you don’t need a personal trainer, sometimes you do. You just got to get moving. So if you focus on doing the small things you’ll start building momentum and you’re going to be able to succeed in other areas of your fitness as well.

 

Kimberley

Excellent. And lastly, your fit tip on prayer.

 

Adam

I love prayer. I love communing with the Holy Spirit. My tip for prayer is almost the same as Bible study because a lot of times we think in terms of obligation, like we have to pray a certain amount of hours every day. Or we have to pray or God won’t love us. Those are two extreme examples but to once again have the approach to prayer to have joy as your motivation to pray. When I pray it’s a joy because I get to experience the tangible presence of the Lord. So my tip would be to pray with the mindset, the motivation, of joy and pleasure. In His presence is the fullness of joy. In His right hand are pleasures forever more. That’s Psalm 37:4. And when we come to prayer with that sense that man I get to just sit at His feet and just come and soak in the Presence that’s when amazing things start to happen. That’s when we really begin to behold glory and it’s just a different approach than obligation. Come at it with a sense of joy and expectancy that you’re going to experience God’s goodness.

  1. I was really struck by Adam’s suggestion that we come to prayer with joy and expecting to meet our Father there. Too many times I look something up quickly in the Bible or shoot up quick words of request when what I truly need is just to feel His presence. Thank you for the reminder.
