While I believe everything that a person needs to live well can be found in Scripture,
that is not the purpose of the Bible.
Tim Keller shared this week a quote from @TonyReinke that struck me. He said,
“The way to joy isn’t something Jesus tells us about; the way to joy is Jesus.”
Jesus doesn’t show us the way, He is the way.
Jesus doesn’t just lead us into truth, He is the truth.
Every book of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is God revealing His Son Jesus.
Devotion time is not a time to “read” the Bible, it is a sharing of time with the Word made flesh.
The Word Became Flesh
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Word Made Flesh
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Time to meet with The Word.
