left comment on website…I use NLT Abundant Life NT as an evangelistic tool…not as slangy as “the Message” but down to earth verbiage for everyday people”…tnx for this version….also use in my house churches as a discipleship tool…they read 1 subheading worth of verses a day and ask: “why was this written 2000 years ago”, “what does it have to do with life today”, and “how does it impact my life today in particular”…we use the results as a group for discussion and “life worship change” where we do one thing different because of our understanding of the above readings each week…tnx again…IHS..paul

I just posted Jeremiah 33:3 and I discovered the NLT when I started attending Celebrate Recovery! I loved the translation so much, I haven’t used anything else but the NLT study bible for the past 2 years!

I first started using the New Living Translation (NLT) in 1999. I received a copy just prior to going on a mission trip to Mexico. I remember reading this new translation, and how it made me feel when I was able to read scripture in a way that I could fully understand.
A few years later, while in college, I was studying the original Greek text for a class. I remember comparing what I translated for the class with how the NLT translation read. It was then that my connection with the NLT was made solid. Everything that I was translating from the Greek was near the same with what was written in the NLT.

Now, I am a U.S. Army Chaplain serving in the Middle East. I use the NLT in everything I do. I quote from it, study with it, read from it, and conduct a weekly Soldier’s Bible Study with it. I have passed out hundreds of copies of the NLT, which were donated by Operation Worship. I carry one of those camo Bibles with me everywhere I go. It has started to show signs of ‘character’, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I believe that it is a testament to how much I rely on scriptures. The pages are dirty. I had to reinforce the cover with camo tape so it would not fall apart. I have had written many thoughts and notes on those sweat stained pages. This Bible will continue with me through this whole deployment, and then it will retire to a shadow box to be a reminder for years to come. It has been my companion through a lot of β€˜stuff’. God’s word has and will always be my greatest comforter.

Posted to the Facebook wall! Our church ( uses the NLT version for all of the teachings. That is how I first became introduced to it. It’s a great translation! It’s easy to understand, and that is why I recommend it to everyone now. We use it in our youth ministry and the students find it easy to follow, especially if we have one of the great student versions, like the “Student’s Life Application” handy. πŸ™‚

I posted on James 1:17. I love the NLT – it makes reading and understanding the Bible so clear to me!

Posted in Facebook: Colossians 1:16 is a foundational verse for me. It shows Christ not only as the Creator, but He is also the Sustainer, the Reason for, and the Omega-point for Reality as we know it. When a brother was reading the letter to the Ephesians from the NLT I also saw Christ and His Church in a clearer way in the NLT’s “expanded” phrasing. Maybe one day the Lord will send a NLT bible my way . . .

I just posted about my first copy of NLT…. God Bless.

Alright I posted. The NLT made the bible become more of a personal story for me. It is wrote in a way that it is not stressful to read and it makes it feel more personal, just like our Father is. He is a God that loves us, care about us, and is relational with us. Thank You NLT. Pslams 119:11

Upon completing Bible School and giving my initial sermon I received several gifts. The New Living Translation Study Bible was one of the best. It helps me to prepare my sermons and challenges me to study the Word in depth. It also gives great commentery as well. I wrote an affirmation called “Dont Get Too Close To The Mirror” and I used this scripture: Isaiah 66:18 (NLT) reads β€œI can see what they are doing, and I know what they are thinking. So I will gather all nations and all people together and they will see my glory.” Praise ye the Lord!

My 2 favorite verses from the NLT are: John 6:66 “At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. And John 15:5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. These 2 verses tell us plainly and simply that Jesus isn’t concerned with having a ton of half-hearted posers and that Jesus wants to work in each of us to bring Glory to Himself. The NLT has become my Bible. I am so thankful for the NLT; it stays true to the Word and is understandable in a way that will bring anyone closer to Jesus.

I posted my favorite psalm 118 verse 1. I have a very old NIV (1986) student study bible that was my favorite study bible. I would like to rec a free NLT. I’ll eventually buy one if I don’t win one. I also read it in the you version on my IPad.

I just posted 1 Corithians 13: 4-7 — 4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

The word of God is truth, we just have to read it and allow God to revel His truth to us. Sometimes it takes years for us to understand the truth about God’s word it’s our response, our understanding, our humbleness to God,when we allow God to refine us, we are more humbled to then be able to lead others to the way. the truth, and the life, Jesus Yawah

I have left my message on facebook about the potter I believe that just as the potter had to start over with His clay so did God with me when I became His child. But I also know He wasn’t done with that clay now as I humble myself God is changing my thought as I allow Him to refine is work.
