THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Some of our "upity-ups" in Congress caused millions of dollars to be spent
just so you can talk to a LIVE person at the IRS.
Personally, I'd rather call and here an automated voice saying,
"We're sorry, but that number has been disconnected!"
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of
Christ Jesus my Lord:
In connection with the devotion “You STILL have a LOT to LEARN,”
Paul's statement in the Scripture above indicates a decision that is sacrificial in nature:
Everything else takes second place to learning more about our Lord, Jesus.
Jesus is revealed in the Bible.
You can KNOW Him PERSONALLY!
Have you set aside a time in the day when nothing is allowed to interrupt your study of God's Word?
Is it important enough to you that learning of Jesus takes priority over "all things?"
The farther we travel down the road of Bible study, the more exciting is our journey!
The Word of God reveals:
the power of our Lord Jesus, in creation,
His love displayed, seeking sinners in The Garden of Eden,
the nature of His holy righteousness, in the books of law,
His gentle kindness toward mankind, in the books of history,
the joyful praise of saved people to an omnipotent, omniscient Lord in the book of Psalm,
expectant anticipation in the books of prophecy, which help us endure today,
the personal, sacrificial atonement of our Lord in the Gospels,
and, the instruction of our Lord in the epistles.
Through dedicated and determined Bible study, we learn so much about our Lord Jesus.
Indeed, the knowledge of Him is "excellent!"
Without knowing our Lord, how can we be His servants?
My prayer for all Christians today is:
"17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." (Eph 3:17-19)
