Random Reading by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/13/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What would happen if you randomly pulled things out of the refrigerator at lunchtime?

“What kind of sandwich are you eating?!”

“Looks like I’ve got some jelly, mustard, whipped cream, uh . . . something from a green container. Want a bite?”

“YUK!”

Nancy: As crazy as that sounds, we can take a similar approach when it comes to reading the Bible.

“Well, let’s see. This is as good a spot as any. ‘And the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD . . .’”

Nancy: If we take parts of the Scripture out of context, we could miss the meaning altogether. We need to read systematically. Verses make sense in light of chapters. Chapters make sense in light of whole books.

If you’re not in the habit of reading systematically, could I encourage you to choose one book of the Bible? Read it through to understand the big picture. Then carefully study it, and savor the details that you find.

  • “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Verse of the Day

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. — Acts 20:24 (NKJV)
