Use It Wisely!

Open And Use!

I have been getting ready for a new series on CHARACTER that will be coming up in April, and I have spent a great deal of time thinking about our BIBLES!  Almost everyone in America has at least one Bible and everybody in America has access to the Bible in some shape or form.  It is easy for us to look at the Bible as just another good book, but it is so much more than that and we need to learn to see it and treat it in that way!

What The Bible Says: This is what the Bible says about itself in Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

It’s More Than That! The Bible is more than just a good book.  The Bible is God’s Word!  God – the Creator and Sustainer of all things, has provided us with a love letter of written out directions that will guide and grow us to live the most incredible life ever, but we often miss out because we are too lazy or distracted to take even five minutes to pick it up and allow God the opportunity to speak into our lives.

Making Life Better! You’ve got problems and the Bible has solutions!  Take a little time today to get your own copy and invest a little time everyday in reading and taking God’s Word into your head and heart.  It is amazing the difference that it will make in your life!



Hope & Grace!

Hope & Grace!

 I am the proud parent of two amazing little girls!  Gracie is eight and Hope is four.  They teach me something new every day!  They love me with an unconditional love – just because I am their Daddy.  They love to wrestle.  They love movies.  They love video games.  And they love Chick-fil-a!  They would eat Chick-fil-a for every meal – every day.  I used to think that they liked Chick-fil-a because of the playground, but that’s not it.  They like Chick-fil-a because of the chicken!  Every time they get nuggets with Polynesian sauce – it is all good – every single time!  They know what they like and they trust what they like and it fulfills and fills them!

This is what God and His Word does for me!  When I was younger, I had a youth leader who taught me how to go to the Word and hear from God.  When I learned how to open up the Word and hear from God, my relationship with God went to a whole new level.  Now I go there every day, because I know what to expect and I know that it is going to be good – really good!  I have been going back to God and His Word every since before I became a teenager and I have never walked away dissatisfied!

Go enjoy a Chick-fil-a today and also take some time to meet God in His Word!  You won’t be dissatisfied!
