Hungry?

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory. John 1:14 Jesus is The Word. If you were to approach the Bible like we approach Jesus think how alive it would become to you.  "In Him (The Word) was life" John 1:4.  The words of the pages of this book can be alive to us. It has the power to change your life as Jesus did to first save you.  Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart and watch your life transform and the world around you shift. Get started: Make a Plan: Choose a bible translation you like, a regular time & place to read your bible and pick a bible reading schedule (see YouVersion for ideas) - plans build habits that build your life. Vary your Read:  Read large sections – get the overview, culture, stories, God’s master plan.  Read

The Script for your Future

Apparently many actors have signed up to Steven Spielberg’s movies without reading the script first.  A couple exceptions would be John Hunt and Ray Winstone – in these cases it is reported that a suited man was flown over to them, handed them the script and upon completing the reading the suited man flew back with the script.  Actors sign up because Spielberg is the genius of the cinema world. Most of us sign our lives over to God because He is God before we have read much of the script … its called trust – you CAN trust Him.  But once you have placed your life in His hands to then try & live out the scenes of your life without reading the script over & over would be like an actor saying now that I am signed up I still don’t need the script – the spirit of Spielberg lives in me
