In Other Words

"Ancient words, ever true
Changing me and Changing you.
We have come with open hearts.
O let the ancient words impart."
Lynn DeShazo

It is a Book that was written over a period of 1,500 years. It has about 40 different authors. Yet it is one complete book with no contradiction. It is an ancient book spanning vastly different times yet always relevant to the people who read its powerful words. It's words and truths have always been life-changing. They continue to do that to this day.

The Bible is God's word to us. It is Spirit-breathed. If we come to its pages with open hearts, we hear the voice of the Author, and we are changed. It brings light to a heart darkened by sin and separation from the Father. It gives instruction to those who believe in Him. It gives comfort in sorrow and hope when all seems lost.

"For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
It is indeed alive and active. I have come to its pages in time of deepest need and found there just exactly what my broken heart needed. I can come to the same passage at a different time and have it speak to my heart in a whole new way. Its truths pierce my heart when I am wandering down a path that leads to destruction. It teaches me things that enable me to grow in wisdom and knowledge.

I love the written word. I am so thankful the ancient men were obedient to the call of the Spirit and faithfully recorded the words He spoke to them. Their voices echo down through the ages - and we are so blessed.

And we receive His Word and pass it down...thank you sweet Linda, so your blog and your sweet comments on my blog. You're right, we're going to miss Chris' parents dearly. His Dad is turning 80 this year and has emphysema, so he used an oxygen tank here this time; but it was just very hard for him to breathe. We nearly clipped some wires on their vehicle(hee hee) to keep them here :)
Love you much!

Hi Linda-

"I can come to the same passage at a different time and have it speak to my heart in a whole new way." I absolutely agree! That is why it is the living word. It molds itself to what God needs us to hear at a given moment.

What a quote...

What you said is so true. I have even found that one verse can speak to me in different ways at different times.

It always amazes me how the Bible can have all the answers to today's question just like the answers it had to the questions from so long ago. It never changes.

I agree with every word and yes we are so fortunate to have this very special Book. It is a blessing indeed.

This is so very true. Thank you for sharing.

Makes you wonder what the world as we know it would be like if we didn't have this book! xox

Beautifully written once again. Isn't it amazing how we suddenly see something we've read a hundred times and it jumps out and changes our lives?

At 6:32 PM, Blogger Julie said...

I couldn't agree more, Linda. Knowing The Author is really our most important goal. Well said!

I never cease to thank the Lord for His Word!

Beautiful, Linda!
The Word of God is His love letter...and at the same time, so powerful!

"If we come to its pages with open hearts, we hear the voice of the Author, and we are changed. It brings light to a heart darkened by sin and separation from the Father."

Oh, this really spoke to me! I just love the way you said this. Amen and amen. What an awesome post!

How beautifully written, Linda. You are right, His Word is comfort and peace. I have had it too that even though I read the passage many times, sometimes it gives me a different understanding; a deeper understanding of His heart...

Blessings to you and yours.
