Good Morning March 18

My daughter was once talking with someone about reading the Bible. They said, “Once you’ve read the Bible through what’s the point of reading it again. You already know what’s there.” They were treating the Bible like a common novel. Once you’ve got the general story, that’s it. Put it aside. I’ve been reading or hearing the Bible read for more than 70 years, and still find it a thrill. Within the last week a Jewish Christian pointed out a truth about the Old Testament that I had not seen before. It was like finding a new gold coin in a corner of the house. Our pastors, whose lives are spent in the Bible daily, get together annually for further lectures and discussions about God’s Word. That is the point. It is God’s Word, and God cannot be exhausted. Genesis tells us that God walked with man in the Garden before the rebellion. They talked together. Jesus walked for many hours with His disciples. They talked together. God has continually desired to share truths of His life with the people He created. That has not stopped down to this very day, in your very life. Stay in the Scriptures. It is a treasure to be mined.
