Do you have a favorite book that you return to again and again? Perhaps it’s one you’ve loved since childhood. It’s a bit simplistic, but significant to you, and while you know it from beginning to end, you return to it from time to time to remember its well-loved story.
Or perhaps it’s a book that made a significant impact on your faith and Christian walk. You know the truths it contains, but again, you find yourself drawn to re-read it now and then to be reminded of its timeless impact.
Far better than novels, stories, or even theological tomes is the Bible. It is the book we can return to over and over and always learn from. Its truths truly are timeless, and they are delivered straight from God himself. It reveals to us our Savior. It exposes our sin and puts on full display the grace of God in Christ that rescues us from that sin. It convicts and comforts. It truly is “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.Isaiah 40:8
Forever and ever, amen.
I hope you’ve had time to read, reflect, and meditate on God’s Word today. If not, please make it a priority. And when you’ve done that, you can always come back to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
- To what are you conformed?
- Suffering may be caused by more than simply trials.
- I’ll just leave this here and refrain from commenting.
- I haven’t had a chance to read this yet, but it looks interesting.
- And I haven’t had a chance yet to listen to this, but plan to.
- What a difference 68 years can make.
- Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
- This sounds delicious. And there’s no dairy!
- Ah, Philippians 4:13. The verse everybody loves to misinterpret.
Do not doubt the holy love of Jesus to your soul when he is laying a heavy hand upon you.Robert Murray McCheyne
