I was tuning a very nice woman’s piano today and conversing about the Word of God. I had opined how we do not have the reverence of the Word that they did in the Old Testament.
The woman pointed out how lucky we are to have the Word available to us whenever we desire to read it. She is both right and wrong.
In Nehemiah, someone had to read the Word to the people and there were others to help them to understand. Today we can read it ourselves and read a commentary if we have questions.
Sounds good, right?
It isn’t. The Word is no longer precious or rare, now it is ignored or used as a telephone book. (Which we no longer use either).
What good is having the Word, if it is not giving life to those who have it? How many are studying to show themselves approved?
They would sing scripture all day, we want more verses, never mind what the Word says. We know better. It saddens me to see how little the Word affects today’s Christians.
If we disagree, we throw it away. Again We Know Best! Lord help us, please. May the Word come alive in our hearts and minds. May it changes us, into Your Image.
Thanks for visiting,

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
