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.
Did you ever stop to think: WHY did people run FROM Moses;
but, they ran TO 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 Jesus IS the Lord!
And, when He came down from the "mount of transfiguration," people ran TO him!
Moses represented the LAW.
Jesus represents God's FORGIVENESS.
The LAW of God reveals and exposes our SIN!
Jesus reveals and exposes God's loving FORGIVENESS!
Through study of God's written Word, the most wicked of sinners can be led to the Savior!
Also, through study of God's written Word, 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.
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!
