Eyes to See (February 3, 2012)
If I am not careful, I can easily fall into a trap of coming to the Word of God to learn something, to deepen my theology, to sharpen my defense of a doctrinal issue, to beef up my evangelistic efforts, to find a good insight for a Bible study or sermon, and other similar motives. What I can lose focus on in the midst of all of that is that it is in the Word of God that I should be encountering Jesus Himself. Growing to love Him more. Hearing what He has to say to me each and every day - for my growth, not for my ministry alone.
A basic, yet wonderful lesson that I need to be reminded of over and over again.
