Sometimes when a verse arrests my attention, it feels like God put it there just for me. He is speaking directly to me, my life, and I am seeing rich, wonderful applications of His word. The depth of this passage or that detail of the story, is so amazing. . .maybe no one else has ever noticed it!
And honestly, it used to deflate me when I would have a spiritual insight and someone else had already thought the same thing. But somewhere along the way, it ceased to be disappointing and instead became even more exhilarating: there were two of us!
The omnipotent, all-knowing God of the universe Who taught me this truth in His word, taught my brother or my sister in Christ the exact same thing. Now that's an amazing God! When He speaks to us, He has a purpose: a command to follow (as Numbers 4:49 repeats twice), an attitude or thought process to change, an encouragement to give, something that sculpts us more into the image of Jesus Christ.
The riches of God's word are not a hidden or personal collection for some cellar or safe room. They are a treasure that we get to put on display for the world (Matthew 13:52).
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
