Jesus is revealed from cover to cover in the Bible.
Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Thank You for today. Teach us love and teach us to see Jesus from cover to cover as we read Your Word. We need more love and more Jesus in the world. Help each of us to stop taking offense at our neighbor and start showing love to them instead.
Empower us to love the unloveable and empower us to look the other way when faced with temptation.
Feed our hunger with more Jesus.
No matter what the hunger is for, feed it with more Jesus. Jesus brings joy, peace and righteousness. These are things we need in this world.
Father, use each of us to penetrate the darkness. We need Your help to become the brightest light we can be. You are our power source to make us bright. Give each of us a deep hunger for more Jesus and let Him become our greatest desire. Let Your Word become our greatest treasure.
All glory and praise goes to You. It is in the holy name of Jesus Christ that we pray.
Today’s Transformation Tip
20 Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet’s own understanding, 21 or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.
2 Peter 1:20-21
We need an experiential knowledge of the Word of God. The more we read the Word, the more we will understand it. I heard once that the first time we read the Word, we get an understanding from a historical point of view. The second time we read the Word, we get an understanding of Israel’s role in the Bible. And the third time we read the Word, we get a better understanding of Jesus Christ because we start to see Him from cover to cover.
Jesus is revealed in Scripture in every single book of the Bible.
We see Jesus in Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, etc. etc. etc. We’re told in John 1:14 that Jesus is the Word so it really shouldn’t be a surprise that Jesus is hidden all throughout each written word.
As you start looking for Jesus when you read the Word, you’ll get hungrier and hungrier for more. And may it be a hunger that will never be satiated. Spend a lifetime getting to know the Word intimately. It is our protection against deceit.
Not one word is placed incorrectly in the Bible. We are told in the verse above that all Scripture is God-breathed. Men may have been holding the pen but God was guiding their hand as they wrote each book.
Get grounded in the Word today.
Stay in the Light and Love always,
