Have you ever received an email with a quote, story, or scripture reference from a friend that was just what you needed and the words hit you right where you were? GOOD! We need one another and more importantly we need Jesus to get into our stuff.
While there are many cute quips on Facebook, Twitter and in my inbox that I enjoy, you and I have a Book full of great sayings, stories, wisdom, advice, inspiration and conviction. So, if you enjoy those little emails and Facebook quotes why not get the whole story? At times we do need something quick and to the point but we also need to fill up on vast offerings from the Word. Snacking is fine between meals in this case. What if you and I would sit for a while to feast on a whole meal and not skip meals or snack on junk food all day long?
Wouldn’t Jesus Himself get into our stuff? Yes, by His Word and through His Spirit, to bring sustaining words of mercy, grace and love. Our cup would overflow and we’d get down to some serious business as Jesus sheds light on our darkness.
What is your “stuff” today? Would you take time to talk to Jesus about it right now?
If you’re hungry for more of Him, may I suggest Proverbs 3 (the whole chapter)?
It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. Prov. 3:8 (NKJV)
