I love the Word of God…the more I read it, the more I love it and Him, the Person of the Word…Jesus! He is the Word of God,( John 1:1) and His job as the Word of God, revealed in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, Rev 1:1 is to make God known. Jesus communicated (semaino in the Greek – to give a sign, signify, indicate to make known) to us the unfathomable, by making it fathomable through Himself. He manifested Himself and spoke in stories that we would understand, so we can get to know God!!
Jesus came to save and set free, and in doing so, let us know the Father. (Jn 14:6-11) So, this summer, as you spend your quiet time with the Lord and His Word, read it afresh, with a knowledge that God wants to be known and can be known! He sent His only Son into the world, so that we can know Him, the Father. Spend some time this month lounging with your Bible, and allow the Word of God to come alive for you as you do so. The time you invest in getting to know God through the Love Letter He wrote to you will not return to Him empty (Isa 55:11). Enjoy getting to know God more!!
