The Living Word

I love the vision of Scripture being breathed out by God. Remember the Bible verse from Job on Monday’s post. If breath is life, and Scripture is breathed out by God, then (I believe) that’s one of the reasons we see Scripture as the Living Word.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
2 Timothy 3:16 ESV

I read a Tweet the other day that said something to the effect, ‘You can never finish reading the Bible because the message changes everytime you read it.’ Isn’t that so true? Every time I read Scripture I find brand new nuggets of information, wisdom, and direction. God speaks to me/us through His living word. That just amazes me! Dive in and see what He’s wanting to say to you.

Make a prayer list of everyone you know who is suffering from breathing problems, illnesses, diseases. Keep it with you and/or share their initials in the comments. Our church family lost another member yesterday. She died in her sleep. Please remember her loved ones in your prayers.

Please join me this week in praying for everyone on all of our combined lists. Let’s lift them up to our loving Heavenly Father. Let’s petition Him for their healing, that the breath of the Almighty gives [them] life. Let’s also pray for the doctors, nurses, and medical support teams who care for our loved ones. May they be given strength and encouragement. Join me in praising God for His love and guidance through difficult times.

My prayer list is:
M.W., L.O. & son, B.E.’s son, B.W.’s brother, C.W.1, C.W.2, members of S. family, K.D., members of M. family, T.C., M.H., L.P. family.
One woman’s list includes K.S. & L.S.
Another woman’s list includes M.W., B.F. family, and LT family.
