Psalm 119:34-35 (NIV)- 34 Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart. 35 Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
If we want to love Jesus with all we have, we should read his Word the way a lover would, as a message from our beloved. Whenever we open our Bibles, we should pray, “Lord Jesus, I’m not just here for these words; I am here for you, and for the love message you want to send from your heart to mine.” God has promised to meet us in his Word, which makes Bible-reading a place to rendezvous with our Savior… When we respond to his invitation, we are loving God. [Loving Jesus More, Ryken, p.48]
How wonderful it is that God has given us his word. Jesus, the one whom we love, is not silent but speaks to us in the scriptures. Let’s respond to Jesus’ invitation and ask him to speak to us today in an intimate and personal way through the scriptures. Spend time reading God’s word. Let’s worship to the song “Loves Goes On”(click here) by Hillsong.
