1:12 dig in to the Bible


It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

I am constantly amazed at the things that come out of the Bible as I seek God.  Yesterday was one of those days where something caught my attention early in the day.  One verse (the next one below) held my attention and worked it’s way through thoughts and even some conversations.

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

Then another thought hit me.  Go look at other 1:12 verses.  That was a trip that took me in several different directions, brought strength and gave me insight in to other things going on in my life.

So, I challenge you to dig in to the Bible.  Start in the book of John or maybe Proverbs and read.  Let God work it in your heart and mind.  The truth of God, the Word of God, makes a difference in our lives as we let it sink in.

Read on.  May God do what He does so well!

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours.

We can say with confidence and a clear conscience that we have lived with a God-given holiness and sincerity in all our dealings. We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom. That is how we have conducted ourselves before the world, and especially toward you.
