“COME TO ME…AND LEARN OF ME.” Matthew 11:28
How often do people ask, “What are you reading?” Sometimes the question is, “Who are you reading?” Besides God’s Word—the Bible, my answer may be Thomas Watson, Horatio Bonar, Charles Spurgeon, or any of the Puritans or Reformers. Last year it dawned on me that I have never heard anyone say that they are reading Jesus Christ. This set me to begin and record my study on what He specifically spoke and taught. This has opened a new world to me beyond what anyone else teaches.
I am amazed at the many blogs that are witnessing to the name of Jesus Christ. I am blessed and encouraged to read how He is working in the lives of the younger generation, leading them to seek “higher ground.” He is bringing many out of the modern church to find the true “manna” from our heavenly Father. Instead of letting them feed on husks He is giving His children the “bread of life,” bringing to reality the truth of His Word that, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
News and music blogs seem to be the most popular. Jesus came to proclaim and show us the most important news of every day—“Glad Tidings of the Kingdom of God.” Luke 8:1 Jesus puts a “new song” in our hearts. Heaven is opened that we may hear the angels singing, “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty! Who was, and is, and is to come.”
Jesus said, “MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE.” John 6:36
We who live on Jesus Christ—in Christ, and Christ in us—are JESUS’ BLOG.
His words become our words; His life becomes our life.
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord:
I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds.
And I will be their God, and they shall be my people”
Hebrews 8: 10; 10:16
From the apostle Paul’s blog—“And he (God the Father) put all things under his (Jesus’) feet and gave him to be head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him WHO FILLS ALL in ALL. IN WHOM the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple to the Lord. IN HIM you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.” Ephesians 1:22,23; 2:21,22
“And you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” 2 Corinthians 3:3
Speak to my heart, Lord Jesus, Speak that my soul may hear;
Speak to my heart, Lord Jesus, Calm every doubt and fear.
Jesus, Jesus, Speak to my heart, I pray;
Yielded and still, seeking Thy will, Oh, speak to my heart today.
B.B. McKinney, 1886-1952
