...It's....ALIVE!

appropriately, my first comment on our "deep study passage" is this:

God's word is so rich...so deep...so amazingly full of life and lessons that it will be no problem reading this one passage every day for a week (or for a year) and getting something "new" out of it each of those days.

we can emphasize different words...we can use a different translation...we can put it in our words...we can read what others say about it...we can think about the original human author's thoughts...or what his reader's thought...we can apply it to our own situation...we can remember a time when this passage was (or could have been) helpful to us...we can imagine a situation where this passage would be important to us.

God's word is living and active! it doesn't sit idly by. it is real and true and really true. it is God speaking to us...His children! oh, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the children of God! and that is what we are! His children!

and He speaks.

the words of a hymn:

"speak my Lord, speak my Lord;
speak and i'll be swift to answer Thee!"

amen.
