The blessings of the Cross - A LIVING WORD
 
"You were not redeemed with corruptible things, but with the precious blood of Christ. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God."
- 1 Peter 1:18-21
 
It has been written, "The Bible speaks in hundreds of languages to the heart of man. Above the cradle and beside the grave its great words come to us uncalled. They fill our prayers with power larger than we know and the beauty of them lingers on our ear long after the sermons which they adorned have been forgotten. They return to us swiftly and quietly like doves flying from far away. They grow richer as pearls do when they are worn near the heart." Now we may say: "All this is true and all this is wonderful. God has really been kind to us in using our language, our limitations of human speech, to tell us His pity, His love, and His heart." I am unable to add anything to this great revelation.
 
Mysteriously, there IS something else. After all, many of things said about . . .

Mysteriously, there IS something else. After all, many of things said about the Bible can also be said about other great books. They, too, have lifted, inspired, and comforted. There is, however, one thing about the Bible that no other book has or ever will have, where it stands completely alone. The Bible is Jesus Christ! In, above beyond, and beneath the words is Jesus Christ. It can, therefore, be understood only on our knees. As we feed upon it, we become aware of great hands, powerful and real, drawing us toward the bleeding and glorious face of Jesus  Christ. The final sense of the bible always lies beyond, beyond the words, the ideas, the events which are but signs in which the eyes of faith detect the person of the Only Son, the Holy One, the Redeemer of the world.
 
Christian friends, let us therefore give our lives in full surrender and obedience to the One who gave His all for us.
 
Just as I am, without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bid'st me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Jesus gave His all for me, how can I give Him less?
