Discover…the word means ‘to
come upon, find out, make known or realize, especially for the first time’.
We all like to discover things, whether it’s a new restaurant, a new recipe, a
collector’s item at a yard sale, a shortcut that saves us time, whatever.
We’re always looking for something new, something different. We get bored
with the same old things all the time. We get restless when we get in a
familiar routine. We want out…we want to be rescued. We want new and
different and exciting. We’re constantly on the lookout. The world
knows this and that’s why technology is ever changing, always introducing new
things they want us to believe that we have to have. But the truth is many
of those things we can do without…and it wouldn’t hurt us a bit. But there
is one thing…something you may already have in your possession that is alive and
ever changing. No matter how many times you go to it and use it, it never
wears out, it never becomes outdated or obsolete, and it never becomes boring.
And it’s something we can’t live, not truly live without. That something is the
Bible, God’s holy word. No matter how many times you read it it’s never
the same. Now, the words themselves don’t change, but their meanings do.
Herein lies the magic; the mystery. How can the words remain the same, but not
their meaning? Because according to John 1:1 “In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” God’s word is alive.
It’s one of the ways that He speaks to us, if and when we let Him. His message
to us changes as our lives change. The decisions we face, the choices we
make, the condition of our hearts, the situations in our lives…all these things
God knows. And when we seek His face and search His word we can find all the
answers we need for everything going on in our lives. As we open our
hearts to Him, He opens our eyes to discover things that were once hidden,
things that before we couldn’t understand. Each turn of the page brings
new discoveries, the pages springing to life in our hands! It’s filled
with life examples for us to follow, warnings about the enemy and what to stay
away from, scolding when we don’t obey, God’s promises, His grace, mercy and
love…oh yes… LOVE. The whole New Testament is God’s love letter to us. He
wants us to open it and read it often. He wants us to keep its words in
our hearts, to cherish it because it is a rare and precious gift; the only one
of its kind. This gift is ours for the taking. Will you accept this
gift? Will you take the time to open it to see what you might discover?
We’d like to invite you to join us each weekend at 4pm for Discovering the Word
Each week we seek to discover more about God and His word and what it means for
us today. We’d love for you to join us and we’d also love for you to share any
questions you may have or ideas you may have for an upcoming program. This
program isn’t just mine and Alan’s. It’s yours, too. Won’t you come be apart?
Again that’s every Saturday and Sunday at 4pm on wvsgradio.com. Come see what
