First ... This week's Recipe 4 Holiness will post tomorrow, we were away for the weekend. Just love Summer!! Going to share a little of my 're-version' story!
Scripture. God’s Word. The Bible.
What do those words mean to you?
Do you consider the Word of God as useful in your own daily life? Does it seems strange that an ordinary book on your shelf could be so important to every day decision-making, behavior-choosing, life-happenings?
If I were asked this in 2005, I would have answered with a resounding, “no way, it is just an old book with old guys’ opinions in it.” That was of course before I actually read it; and long before someone explained how the Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit and then I witnessed God using it to introduce Himself more deeply to me. How can I even put into words what it is like to sit with the Bible, open up a page (even a seemingly random page) and have a message jump off the pages that you KNOW is just for you — for that day and in that moment? It is amazing . . . it is crazy but hard to deny the Divine intervention when it happens.
What other book on your shelf can you pick up day after day and learn from, be moved by, feel as if someone is talking JUST to you? For me the answer to that question is NONE! No other book draws me in – every day – like the Holy Bible. None.
How does that happen? How does one move from not even owning a Bible to having multiple ones; and some so tattered I have to ‘retire’ them? Let me share how this happened to me:
