John 5:39 (NIV)
39 You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,
When it comes to faith, what part do the Scriptures play? What part do the Scriptures play in your life?
How great is Your Love for us, Oh Lord, that You inspired Your Word to teach, guide, comfort and speak You messages of truth to all mankind? The more I study the scriptures, the more I realize how intentionally it tells the story of Your covenant and love for Your people, for all people through Jesus Christ. The more I study Your Word, the more I get a sense for what is important to You, and those same things are becoming more important to me as well. The more time I spend in the Bible, the more relevant it is to my daily life. Thank You, Lord, for Your living Word. Help me to dedicate quiet time to read the scriptures and to be receptive to Your message today. Amen
