I grew up in the Lindsley outside Lynchburg Virginia around the gospel saturated commerce Road liberty University and the was out drinking all the time and they would witnessing to me.

First time I met Jerry Falwell he shook my hand while I was holding a case of beer. My pain other hand, and he said hello to me and and I did not want have anything to do with the Lord.

And when everything to do with liberty of Jerry Falwell for the 12 year girl invited me to church and I was 20 years of age, and things were really rocky at that time and she said I just wish you come to church in the finally on a Sunday night. I I went to a church that started on spiritual journey that I would then realize that I never been born again. I go to church. I've been a church member but I would live in for more. But now I realize I need to be born again.

I got safe and were 15th 1983 and immediately God called me to preach and from there start serving him and then one on this date, the word of the Bible study group of football players over from the University in the summer they had to stay over work out so they may want to Bible study and then one of them asked me how you memorize scripture I say it will you know you want to get the key versus Dale and I have survival kit that I used to help me get key versus Dale I said that I was challenged to memorize the book so I memorize Philippians and simply hear something weird. I would just look at a number and try to think of a first of a go with it the morning at 633 6633. What you think. Yes, there so. So I told these guys that and they said will all right let us pull some numbers that you like to start throwing like the birthday to me and it turned out I was able to just lie For versus so the next day I went and said, with the calendar I had 200 and some of the days already done. I mean I had averse to go with you so that we worked on this back about 2001 that I did this a been doing this number 20 years and people just love it when I put on up with the birthday verse on several days have multiple versus so that's that's good… Like to say May 31. There's not a lot of 531 versus gotta fit the criteria knows one and then 1 to 3112 12 112 31. It only has to get that right your February 29 every four years. Now he's that guy and I have I have a leap your baby's organ to get her birthday second. That's right in the 229 you got some for but but I have that he's that friend member.

That guy your stock in a cab. Can't think of the verse your share Christ with the guy driving I call we call uncle going Dr. Duane Carson and give me a verse quick and I don't ever friend's birthdays were he's shown he just you shine the light of Christ through the word and we have our two of our truth were interns with us who are also host of truthful youth which is our our young people's expression of truth talk Stu Epperson and they have birthdays.

Dr. Carson could we get them assured her birthday and OKC. We got joy Epperson who is my daughter and you have a really good birthday totally birthday is why such a good birthday. My birthday is October 16 and it's such a good birthday because I sat with my beloved Nassau taillight – what can I say, by the way, doing our favorite things were in a coffee shop Moji coffee shop.

Joel 222 and then you need that February 29 229, 228 we got to 29. I don't even arsenal help go into the word on this one and when I say Philippians 21T9 is verse that I like this one.

Let me say this to Gracie. Go to your cousin about so receive him in the Lord with all joy and honor such men as this is on a path for dieters and you choose who your heroes are so his ministry is date the word he's with us right now it coffee with we put them on the spot we put them in the hot seat he's come through big time with our truth were interned joy in Olivia's birthday, Phil Calhoun, when my dear friends for years is been mentoring mentor a friend for years. He is Dr. Duane Carson and take us to the bottom line here Dr. Carson. Your passion for the word of God. I mean, it's fun to connect the dates and it's awesome when I was someone like this and you can say this date corresponds to birthday.

I've seen you do it is so encouraging, but take us to the deeper meaning and significance and import of the word of God connecting to the heart of men and women in young ladies. I think these girls going off to college soon. Watch what, what's the significance for you and what your challenges. Everyone will will appreciate that question because it is more than just a course for the day. It's is when you think about Psalms 1 1911 by word of my head and my heart that may not sin against you. I gotta get God's word of my life so that I can be all warmed to battle the devil Jesus when he was being tempted. He quoted Scripture and this is just another way of being able to memorize Scripture getting hitting heart so that when Satan comes with those fiery darts. He's trying to bring about. Now he's trying to bring about deception know the truth and so nothing is more important for special for young person. From these guys here. There that are working with you young people gotta be memorizing Scripture. Gotta be hiding God's word in your heart and so that's one reason I do this is the easy way to quickly be learning Scripture hears my Bible verse and I know what my verses but then I keep building on that and John told his readers you have overcome the wicked one, because the word of God by you. You can overcome the wicked one if you don't have the word got abiding okay one of our Internet you were interns in host of truthful youth. Joy Epperson is a question gradually so Dr. Carson how do you panic since there's like 66 books in the Bible. How do you choose between the different box. Obviously, the day of the month.

You know will great question and it took some work I went in and took a Bible program and I copied and dropped all the verses into an Excel sheet and then I sorted it by the dates so that I could pick out which verse I thought was the best verse represented that date and it took some work we were able to come up with you again. What we think is the best one. The people will be be used not just the one verse but I verse that speaks to their Harley here here for you. Again, judges 10, 16, it says I can get rid of things in my life that shouldn't be there and I want to commit to serving the Lord. That's a challenging verse rather host of truthful youth. Olivia Fadel is a question greatly and Dr. Carson. So you've given us all the information about how you started doing this all that. So how can we get our hands on this and how can we maybe you know get these daily educations getting these verses centralized or website like a website at maybe Facebook, Instagram page so I know it's donor development. Dr. Carson told one quickly the site and how this is a work in progress but it's coming.

It's working not even a radial program potentially will evening is the big question. Mr. Carson is got to stop doing some other things that we can get focused on put together a devotional book. But if you go to Facebook and friend me on pastor Duane Carson. You can just like that he if you go and friend me on pastor Duane Carson. All except you and then your birthday will come up and I will send you birthday verse and is also data were dot-coms coming to New York and that'll be a place you go one stop shopping for all this and so much on meditation really got into reading the word, studying the word memorize the word meditative rejoicing about something. So how is the word of God informing your heart, your mind, Josh. 18 you day and night. I Dr. Carson in your your spare time you're running awesome Christian school Salem Baptist Christian school. Your associate pastoring with pastor it's over there Salem Baptist Church. Your closing word for one out there will quickly wrap up well again the word of God is your tool ensure if you will. Your armor for handling the temptations that Satan could throw at you and you gonna have convictions established before you face the temptations so you want to begin the word of God into your life as well as God's going to be given all the help you need to face whatever you is going on in your life so the ministry is called date the word worship by way knew us a couple ways because is a word for every day of the year getting the word there, but also for young people you date the word like like to have a relationship with God through his word, how you listen to God as you listen to his word.
