The Bible is so packed full of truth, full of life. Why? Because it isn’t merely words, it is THE Word of God.
There are so many historical aspects in the Bible, so many ways to get caught up in the stories, the characters, the definitions, the interpretations. And I love doing all of those things. But,
I never want to get caught up in anything in the Bible more than I am caught up in Christ.
The Bible is my direct map to Jesus, it is my path of truth leading me directly to The Truth.
If I want to know God more, I just have to open my Bible. In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God. The Word WAS God.
•When I open my Bible, I am opening the heart and mind of God.
•When I open my Bible, I open an endless stream of knowledge and wisdom.
•When I open my Bible, I open a gateway to eternity, both the past and the future.
•When I open my Bible, I open my strength, my comfort, my covering of protection.
•When I open my Bible, I open my adoption papers that remind me that I have been chosen and given a priceless inheritance.
•When I open my Bible, I learn what true love is. It isn’t a feeling that comes and goes, it is a choice to be there no matter what, to do what is necessary, to give Your life if that’s what must be done for the One Whom your Soul loves.
Every story points to Jesus.
Every character points to Jesus.
Every word points to Jesus.
All the advice I could ever need, all the purpose and contentment I could ever want is found in these words, because they point me to The Word and HE is everything I need. ♡
