Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Simon James-Morse (Minister of Goldstone Church)
Speak Lord, We are Listening
Then he said, “When I was with you before, I told you that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and in the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
Luke 24:44-45 (NLT)
We live in a world of information overload. Yet, with all this information, we can still feel ‘out of it’. It requires effort and constant updating to knowing the latest sports scores, or the most recent political development, or the latest fashion trend. Ironically, even within a day, this highly sought-after information will often be irrelevant.
Although timeless, the Bible competes with all these other attention-seekers for a moment of our time. Yet, when we finally get to the Bible, many parts can seem mysterious. We are often left with more questions than answers.
So, it is a great comfort to know that God wants us to understand Him. In the Upper Room with His disciples, Jesus “opened their minds so they could understand the scriptures”. Jesus revealed God’s eternal truths to ordinary people.
And it is the same for us today: God wants us to understand Him as we read the Bible. Of all the information that bombards our mind, what we need the most is a word from God that we can trust. The greatest ‘update’ that we can receive today is the Bible – God’s Word for our soul.
What is God saying to you today through His Word in the Bible?
Almighty God, thank You that You do not remain silent or distant. Thank You that You have chosen to reveal Yourself through your Son, Jesus, and through Your inspired Word. Guard my mind from irrelevant and irreverent data and open my mind so that I can understand Your Word more fully. Amen
