Watchful Wednesdays – How Can I Learn Scripture?
I found this blog today more than stimulating. Ann Voskamp really hits the truth in her post at InCourage. All quotes are from her post.
What if Jesus’ Word was more than useful to us? What if it was beautiful to us?
What if God’s Word was more than a manual in our lives — what if it was the masterpiece in our lives — that made our lives a masterpiece?
Ann questions whether we see Jesus as “useful” or do we adore Him. If we are using Him to make our lives better we are missing the whole point. We need to love Jesus – and get to know Him better through His Word – so we can be strong in Him.
This is a wonderful way to learn Scripture.
Christ’s weapon against Satan in the desert was memorized Scripture. And if you aren’t memorizing Scripture — what IS your weapon in your battle? Where is your defence, your arrow, your hope? We have got to do this thing. It. is. our. life.
This is the year we pick up a sword, that we carry our arrows, that we take aim —-
This is the year that we would fly.
