• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

New and Old Treasures by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/21/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: As believers in Christ, why should we still read the Old Testament?

“Well, I’m sure there’s some good stuff in there—if you can get past all the laws.”

Nancy: If you’ve never experienced the richness of reading the whole Bible, you don’t know what you’re missing. There are themes running through the Bible that are woven together like a tapestry. By looking at the big picture, we can appreciate the beautiful story of redemption that God has given us.

“I guess I mainly read the New Testament. I don’t know.”

Nancy: Personally, I find it helpful to read in both the Old and New Testaments at the same time. It’s amazing how the Old sheds light on the New and vice versa.

Jesus said, “Every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”

Have you been appreciating both the newer and the older treasures found in God’s Word?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
