I love the Word of God. Not out of expectation or obligation, but because it speak to me and opens my life to truth. I like to write verses on post-it notes and put them on the wall in front of my study desk. I was looking at all of them tonight and I thought about how they would mean nothing to me personally if it were not for God's great mercy. He shares His Word with me and He makes a way for me to live and experience His truth. I have no right to even speak His name or hope for salvation, but through Jesus Christ, God has drawn near to me and I can draw near to Him. His Word is alive and I can live in it because God is merciful. I can know His promises of hope and salvation and grace and kindness and goodness and love are for me.
