No scripture in the entire Bible has been quoted more than John 3:16. In it, we see the heart of God, the passion of the Christ, and the hope for all humanity. But I’m not referring to this specific “3:16” but to another.
~ 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. ~
Charles Spurgeon said, “A Bible that is falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.” The falling apart would probably come from pages folded in order to remember favorite stories or passages, notations in places where there’s no room, binding weakened from turns, folds, placement, etc. and you get the picture. A person who has submitted to the truth that the word of God is the sustenance of life is the person who God reveals himself to and uses to build his Kingdom.
When Satan tempted Jesus to turn a stone into bread (which substance is more important) Jesus resisted the temptation by quoting Duet 8:3, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but every word that comes from the mouth of God.” The mouth of God is the BIBLE and it doesn’t shut up! It the wisdom of life, the standard for living, and the regiment for living righteously, so that as his workmen we execute his will and way on Earth as it is in Heaven.
COTHA family, let’s cling to every word that has come from His mouth so that people see Christ in us. Because after all, you are what you eat.
Psalm 34:8 O Taste and see that the Lord is good. In His presence and with His people.
