Good Morning May 22

Some people have felt that if you read the Bible through once you really don’t have to read it again. But the Bible is not like any other book. When one reads a novel, even a good novel, they know the story. They may read it a second time at a later date, but that is pretty much it. The Bible can’t be set aside that easily, even when one knows the basic story. We call it the Word of God, and for good reason. It is. God is speaking to us in many and varied ways. Further, it is a book that God, Himself, uses to speak to our hearts. The Holy Spirit uses various passages to speak to us at different time and in different needs. A passage that is read ten time will have a new and deeper meaning on the eleventh reading. The Bible is our food for life, and one can never exhaust is nourishment.
