Do You Feel Far Away From Jesus?
|Do You Feel Far Away From Jesus?|
I have heard, that the Bible is the most published book we have, but, on the flip side, it is the least read book we have. How SAD! We have this amazing gift from GOD, yet, most of us take it for granted. Take a look at how hungry the people were at Ezra's first church service (Read scripture below)
They did not have publications of the Bible to hand out, they had to attend a gathering to hear the word of the LORD. When they heard the word they lifted up their hands in worship, then, fell face first to the dirt in humility. When they heard the word they were deeply convicted. Their dirt began to turn into mud. But, Ezra, the priests, and the Levites help the people see the grace, mercy, and forgiveness of GOD. Their sadness turned into joy and a celebration to GOD.
You have this amazing book that Ezra reads from (The first 5 books of the Bible). Plus you have 61 more amazing books! When was the last time you Opened the Bible? A year? A month ago? Last week? Yesterday........ Never? If you want to have a relationship with the GOD of the universe, if you want to see HIM move powerfully in your life, it will NEVER happen if you do not Open the Book. Since I have started to read the Bible everyday.... twice a day, I have been blown away at the knowledge the Holy Spirit has given me. Once you experience a taste of GOD moving in your life, you are addicted. It is the most amazing experience you will ever experience.
If you are not on a reading program we can suggest one. If you can't find the time to read everything on that program, that is OK, read what you can. If you fall behind do not try and catch up with your reading, just jump to the current day. The point is to spend sometime in The Bible...... Time with Jesus! If you do not have a Bible. Please send us a message on Facebook, it is a gift from GOD. No one should be denied this gift.
And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was above all the people, and as he opened it all the people stood. And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and all the people answered, "Amen, Amen," lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground. - Nehemiah 8:5-6
