Fading Existence

As the flower of the field he shall pass away. It’s petals wilt and the beauty of it’s appearance is destroyed. So too is the man in the midst of his pursuits. At the very moment everyone is looking on in admiration at it’s beautiful face it fades away to nothing

Revelation Gift

January30

ScriptureI have heard the arguments that God speaks to each individual in a personal way… I do agree with the statement, but I disagree with where I have seen so many take it.

Just because God may speak to one person more through fasting and another more through worship does not discount the fact that Scripture is relevant to everyone. I find it so disheartening to hear Christians state that they don’t read scripture because it doesn’t speak to them. I want to plead with them to realize what they are missing.

I will admit that there are times that I have to remind myself what a gift I have and that I should take full advantage of it, not just doing my daily reading, but by really being hungry for His Word, but I would like to throw this analogy out there:

You are completely head over heels, crazy about the love of your life whom you adore. Your lover pours out an expression of their love and devotion in a passionate attempt to make their feelings known to you, but instead of listening to or reading this expressive account, you decide that since your love language is acts of service and as such you don’t really need to hear it, you just want to see it.

How much would you be missing!! Our King is infatuated with His creation and has made an awesome attempt to make his feelings known in an understandable way, but so often we cast aside this treasure. If we really thought of Him as a lover we would read His letter over and over again in joyous thanksgiving for such a gift.

I have heard such things as ‘we can’t, as humans, understand God and as such, it would be arrogant and wrong to try; and that God will always be a mystery to us. Yet, while we cannot fully understand God – as Scripture says, we see through a glass dimly – we should take full advantage of the extent to which He has revealed Himself to us through His Word. How great is His love that He would make such an effort to reveal it to us.

Ok I suppose I am through with my little passionate display :-).

Oh and on a completely unrelated topic, this was fun.
