The Bible Is Alive and Active

The Bible Is Alive and Active

What’s your take on the Bible? How do you approach it and what kind of role does it play in your life? I believe the Bible is the Word of God and that’s why I want to read it and study it. But it’s not just an old book. The Bible is alive and active even today. And that changes everything, doesn’t it? For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]….

Words Have Power

Words Have Power

This week I’ve been noticing how important it is to decide whom or what kind of talk we want to listen to. Because the messages we receive change us. Words have power, much more than we think. Actually, the whole universe was created by the word of God, Jesus. In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. (John 1:1, AMP,*) By faith we understand that the worlds were…

How to Be in Awe of Jesus Today

How to Be in Awe of Jesus Today

Don’t you just love reading how people flocked to Jesus? How they were in awe of him. Jesus certainly wasn’t a crowd-pleaser but his message and actions were so life-giving and profound that people were astonished. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be one in the crowds hearing Jesus teaching, to be wowed by his life-changing message? Yes, it would. It’d be wonderful to be in awe of Jesus today. Is it still possible? Great crowds came to him, bringing with…

Empowered Living

I love to read the Bible but once in a while I have days that it does not happen. Yesterday, I was already outside heading to the car before I remembered I hadn’t read any Word of God that morning. Yes, we are busy but we can’t be that busy. So I marched back in to get my Bible so I could read even just a verse or two before heading out. I didn’t even take my shoes off (which is…

Meeting God in His Word

Meeting God in His Word

What is your favorite Bible translation and why? A couple of days ago I finished reading the Finnish translation and now I try to decide which translation I will do next. Any recommendations? I need to make a quick decision because I want to return to regular Bible reading as soon as possible. Because it anchors me in Jesus. It blesses me more than I know. So, let me know which Bible version you recommend. I can’t wait to return back…

Eat the Word of God

Eat the Word of God

Do you read your Bible every day? Or do you save it for special occasions? Your answer reveals the health of your faith. Because the Bible is meant to be nourishing daily bread, not fancy cake for special occasions. We are to eat the Word of God daily. “Don’t waste your energy striving for perishable food like that. Work for the food that sticks with you, food that nourishes your lasting life, food the Son of Man provides. He and…

Divine Details

As you might know, I started reading through the Bible once again the first of July. I’m following a reading plan to do it in six months. This means that lately I’ve been reading a lot about God’s instructions for the construction of the tabernacle, the priestly vestments, the altar and its appurtenances, the procedure to be used to ordain the priests, and the daily sacrifices to be offered. You’d think there’s nothing for today’s reader. At least, nothing spiritual,…

Renewing Your Mind by Reading the Bible

Renewing Your Mind by Reading the Bible

How do you renew your mind? How are you becoming more Christ-like day in, day out? There’s no shortcuts here. We can only grow in faith by abiding in God. How do we do that? By practicing ancient Christian disciplines like prayer and reading the Bible. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and…

Heed the Word!

Heed the Word!

It’s almost funny how some odd things of the Bible holds your interest. I’ve been reading the Old Testament in the chronological order and I am almost done, a bit of Nehemiah and then just Malachi left this time around. Anyway. About the odd things that keep you thinking. The prayer in chapter nine in Nehemiah is a powerful prayer…but…there’s no ‘Amen’ at the end. Does it even matter? This is what puzzled me. Amen is a beautiful word meaning…

My Soul Sings Hallelujah

My Soul Sings Hallelujah

I’ve never understood that some Christians can live without reading the Word of God. Do you? How do they keep doubts away? How do they remind themselves of God’s goodness? I truly need to read the Word of God to be filled with the joy of salvation. Let me explain. Just read these three verses: You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting…
