• “I don’t really mind if you sing ‘Let His Glory Fall’ in church…but I think His glory will fall if you’ll go out with nothing except a broken heart, and precious seed.” – Jackie Pullinger

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.

Verse of the Day

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. — Matthew 5:11-12 (NKJV)
