WHAT A GIFT!
As I read my Bible this morning I was thankful for the privilige to read it without fear of imprisonment or death. I know that sounds harsh, however...how often do we take for granted that book that sits on our shelf or coffee table! There are places in the world where Christians are not so blessed. They have to hide the WORD of GOD. They cannot openly read their Bible. How thankful should we be that we can read GOD'S WORD out in the open if we choose?! What a blessing and a gift from GOD! So when will you open GOD'S WORD to see all that HE has for you?! Will you choose to begin at the beginning? GENESIS 1:1 In the beginning GOD...Will you jump right to the Gospels? JESUS said to her," I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in ME, though he may die,he shall live.And whoever lives and believes in ME shall never die. JOHN 11:25 JESUS promises everlasting LIFE with HIM! Will you go to the book of Daniel to read about Daniel's friends? Do you know who Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah are? What about the lion's den?! Will you read Revelation? I will give you a clue..JESUS IS VICTORIOUS! PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD! Open GOD'S WORD now! TODAY! There is a plan and a purpose in GOD'S loving WORD! HE has a plan for your life so that you should not perish and if you trust in JESUS CHRIST as your SAVIOR already ...be encouraged by HIS LIVING WORD! Open GOD'S WORD and trust in HIM alone for your future and your hope! Don't look to this world for help, you will not find it.GOD IS IN CONTROL OF ALL THINGS! IT IS TO HIM THAT WE SHOULD LOOK TO FOR OUR STRENGTH AND FOR HELP AND HOPE! HE is a loving and merciful GOD WHO has given us a glimpse into HIS heart by giving us HIS WORD! I encourage you to read GOD'S WORD today! You will find TRUTH there! May GOD bless you!
