THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A woman went to the doctor because she wasn't feeling well. He examined her, then left the room for a few moments.
When he returned, the doctor gave her three bottles of pills. He said, "Take the red one with a glass of water each morning. Take the green one with a glass of water each day at lunch. Take the blue one at night with a glass of water."
She was very surprised to be given so much medicine. So she asked, "What's my problem, Doc?"
He said, "You're not drinking enough water."
As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.
Water is a good mirror, especially a cool, well-shaded pool.
When one looks into it, his face looks back at him.
We have a mirror in our house that is surrounded by many light bulbs.
When one looks into that mirror, he can see all the blemishes in the skin.
The Word of God is a mirror, especially when read quietly, accompanied by God's Holy Spirit.
When one looks into "the perfect law of liberty" (James 1:25), his heart looks back at him.
In other words, the Bible is a very bright light from God which exposes all our blemishes.
The Word of God cuts deep into our souls and shows whether our heart is right with God (Hebrews 4:12).
The Bible is a mirror that reflects our heart comparatively with God's heart.
Jesus loves us and died for our salvation.
He desires to "..sanctify and cleanse us with the washing of by the Word.." (Ephesians 5:26).
The more we study and learn God's Word, the more we will learn how we are missing God's purposes for our lives.
This invokes change in us to conform to the "image" of Christ (Romans 8:29).
The question is, are we drinking ENOUGH WATER?
