As you may have figured out if you have read my blog a few times I am a Christian (or as I prefer to call it a “Christ-follower”). I believe there is a difference between evangelizing and proselytizing. We want to be able to listen to one another and grow from the diversity of our world, faiths, and cultures. One of the things I think is crucial to every Christian’s journey and integration with believers and seekers of all persuasions is to take time to be in the Word. The Bible is “The Word” in that it contains the very essence of what Christ wants to communicate about God to us – Old and New Testament. It communicates deep penetrating truths that we should want to mine every day. It changes lives. I’ve encouraged lots of people to set a plan in motion to be in the Word every day all year long. Ask me and I will get you a Bible reading plan for 2015.
The Word gives power, insight, and teaching – even to unbelievers. God has broken many a heart and turned many people into trailblazers of faith who have approached the Word with doubt or question. God is not intimidated by your questions. Jesus came to seek and to save and the best lives are lived like that. We seek to save lives – change destinies – reverse negative directions. I want to invite you to send me questions anytime as you read. I will have an answer – it may be out of my own searching or questioning but I will answer you as authentically as I can. But let the Word speak to you and draw out of you the very best. There is deep wisdom just waiting for you so dig in.
“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12
