Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me"
The religious experts of Jesus’ day had made a big mistake in their approach to Scripture. They thought that life was in the understanding of the words. But the words were lifeless without the Word. Jesus told them that the Scriptures testified of Him.
The casual reader may not see this, but the true seeker of God knows that we must bring God’s words to God, the Word, Jesus our Christ. We read the Scriptures correctly, in the Spirit of God, when we see them as a continuous testimony of Jesus Christ.
When we bring the Scriptures we are reading to Him, our living resurrected indwelling Savior, His light, wisdom, and spirit fills us with the true life of God’s Word, Christ Himself. Hallelujah!
