There is no magic hocus pocus in reading the Bible. The living Word of God is there, but you must step aside and allow the scriptures to work in and through you. Self must take a back seat (even get in the trunk). As Paul said, “I live, yet not I but Christ lives in me”. As Christ followers, we can do all things, not through self, but through Christ. The Christian life is designed for Christ, through the Holy Spirit, to be in charge. We must diminish and He must increase. Our efforts are in vain, but through Christ we will obtain.
Words from “Big Yellow Taxi”by Joni Mitchell
“Don’t it always seem to go,
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Till it’s gone…”
What is most important to you today?
Cherish today…what may be gone tomorrow.
Time is fragile…
Time is limited…
Once it’s gone, you can’t get it back.
“You don’t miss the water until the well runs dry.”
