by John Ide
The Bible is not just a book that is to be read like any other. It cannot be skimmed through or treated in a casual manner, it is the Word of God. It has such a depth of meaning, such a storehouse of God’s grace that it must be read carefully, reflected on, chewed over and digested. Then—just when we think that we have got all that we can from a particular passage…the Holy Spirit shows us something more…for it’s a living word!
What follows are some reflections on a few verses from God’s Word. But reflections are only seen on the surface—there is so much more if we will take the time to look below the surface.
