Gathering Together

 

Delight Yourself in the Lord:

·         The love story between

In His Word

 

But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. (Psalm 1:2 Amplified Bible)

The Bible is a treasure chest full of golden nuggets of wisdom, a hymnal of praise, worship and adoration songs, a book of parables, healings and teachings. It is a book of love and hate, war and peace, romance and anger. God gave us:

The story of Creation

Recounting of the Israelites journey

The Leaders/Judges

The story of King David

The beautiful Psalms

The wise Proverbs of Solomon

The story of Esther

The trials of Job

The love story between Christ and His church – Song of Solomon

The Prophets

The story of Jesus, found in the four Gospels

The visitation of the Holy Spirit

Paul’s letters to the churches

The letters of Peter, John and Jude

The book of Revelation that reveals Jesus to the world in the final days

These are only a few of the treasures found in God’s Word!

 

The only way we can know His story and His teachings is to study His word. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. (John 1:1-2)

 

Almighty Father, thank you for your Word. I thank you for the lessons you teach us through your Word. May my mind always be open to receive what I read, my heart always be ready to believe and my hands and feet ready to carry out the instructions in your Word. I love you, Abba Father. Amen.
