So as I was checking off my mental list this morning, doing the Bible Study part, I was knocked over the head by two by four.
Luke 19: 47-48 "Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him. Yet they could not find any way to do it, because all the people hung on his words.
As I read this, I mentally pictured a person holding on to the end of a rope dangling over a deep canyon.
Do I hang on to every word of my Savior as if it is the only source of life?
Do I crave the Word as the Bread that is life and nourishment?
Do I "do devotions" with an attitude of obligation?
Life is the canyon. The Word made flesh is the rope. Me...well, that's me. And I aim to beg the Spirit for the strength to keep hanging on.
