THE LIVING WORD
“Study to shew thyself approved
unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15
I have heard many people say and some say it almost in a bragging manner,
“I have read the Bible through more than once.” That is wonderful!
We should read our Bible but my question is, “Are you spending time with
the Living Word?”
Jesus is not only the Written Word; He is also the Living Word. I
have not read the entire Bible through word for word. I have tried
many times but I would always get stopped when I got in the Old Testament
where there is much law and history.
I do know the Heart of the Living Word! I know what makes Jesus
happy and what makes Him sad. I don’t always please Him because I am
human. However, He knows my heart and He knows how much I love Him.
Please keep reading your Bible but also spend time with the Living Word.
Allow Jesus to rise with Joy in your heart. The Bible says that the
Joy of the Lord is our strength. Let others see the Living Word
shining brightly in what you say, where you go, what you watch, who you
associate with, and what you do.
