I love that the Bible is so long, so rich, so full, so many books of weaved-together stories, unending. Even if you were to read it all the way through, you can always pick it up and find more knowledge than you ever found the first time. Or second. Or third. How beautiful that God made it that way. Can you imagine if you finished it in a week and then that was it?
I love that not only do long-time Believers provide knowledge to new Believers, but even a 1 minute old Believer can teach a veteran something new. Bring a new thought or feeling to their heart. Open their mind to something they never viewed before.
I love that I can email someone I don't know in real life, and only barely know in online life, and ask a VERY personal Jesus question, and the love just pours out in her response. Without skipping a beat. All typed from a phone. Teaching me and sharing her love for Christ as well.
I love that God provided us with so much room to grow, so much knowledge to absorb, so much of a relationship to learn and draw near to, to the point where we will always have more. Always.
I love that I can read the Bible and get one thing out of a passage. And I can talk with a friend and expand on that knowledge. And listen to a sermon and have even more Truth revealed. And sit at home in prayer and absorb it all together and gain an even greater understanding. A greater relationship with Him.
I love that a sermon from 1971 has the same impact in 2011. Timeless.
Quote from a friend: God is good! He is faithful! And sometimes I think we as believers have to be Jesus in the flesh to each other, too. Without being able to see Him, I think He is revealed so much in our lives in the people we meet and connect with. Which drives me to try to be a good example of Jesus to glorify Him to others and encourages me to reach out to those who can provide insight. And I have been provided many awesome sources that have not failed me in my time of question and need.
What an amazing Bride God has created for Christ. I am not worthy to be part of it, but oh do I appreciate that I am. I cannot even imagine how glorious it will all be in the end, when sin is no longer a part of it.
My heart is filled.
