church today

you tuck them in, and it just gets un-tucked. no helping it.

for sabbath school the study was ‘the word in our lives’. everyone shared a favorite verse that had impacted them. it was neat how versatile the bible is and how it can so poignantly effect so many different people. good things.

“he has told you, o man, what is good; and what does the lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your god?” micah 6:8

“see that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is god’s will for you in christ jesus.” 1 thessalonians 5:24

“trust in the lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the lord and turn away from evil.” proverbs 3:5-7

“for i am confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of christ jesus.” phillipians 1:6

to name just a few. it was great to be convicted again of the power of god’s word in people’s lives. sometimes i read the bible just for information and sometimes i slug through it not feeling that bright, but it’s good to know that the power of the word is not in my ham handed attempts to wrest something from it but in the word itself. i read the bible, not because i am confident in my ability to understand it or enlighten myself, but because i am confident in the god who gave his word and that it will not come back to him empty.
