THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A hospital administrator saw a patient running down the hall away from the operating room.
The patient's hospital gown (split down the back) was flopping in the breeze.
The administrator finally got the patient to stop, and asked,
"Why were you running away from the operating room?"
The patient said, "It's because of what the nurse said. She said, 'Don't be afraid, it's a simple apendectomy."
The administrator said, "Well, an apendectomy is fairly simple, why were you running?"
The patient said, "She wasn't talking to me, she was talking to the DOCTOR!"
And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
Have you ever wondered about how differently people responded to Moses and Jesus?
Moses came down from the mountain after receiving the law, and the people asked him to put a veil on his face.
The glory of the Lord was too much for them.
But with Jesus, Who had just been transfigured on the mountain, the people ran to Him.
The people weren't blinded by Jesus, they were ATTRACTED to Him!
The LAW leads us to the Savior!
The law exposes our sinfulness.
Jesus exposes God's forgiveness.
Through study of God's written Word, the most wicked of sinners will be led to the Savior!
Through study of God's written Word, even the most sanctified saint finds need for a more personal relationship with the Savior!
The written Word of God shows us the "desperately wicked" manner of our heart (Jer. 17:9).
Reading the Word, drives us to our knees begging forgiveness.
However, the LIVING Word of God shows us the "love" of God (Rom. 5:8, John 3:16).
We have Someone to Whom we can flee from our sin and find redemption!
READ the written Word of God, and let His Holy Spirit lead you to the LIVING Word of God!
