Scripture as Remembrance

When a loved one is absent, especially is they are far away, we keep some pictures of them. It is an act of love, and something we need, to bring out the pictures and look at them regularly. So, when we study the words of scripture, we remember that God is real though hidden. I find that closely, slowly, repeatedly, thoughtfully lingering over the words and puzzling out their meaning and significance is what brings his Presence near.

    Hi Derek,

    I’m unlikely to take your course (nothing personal, I just don’t have the personal, financial, and family “bandwidth” at this point) but the quote is very insightful, so I took it for my blog post today on Chayei Sarah.

    We must remember that God is with us. Even though it’s not easy, we must remember that He is with us in our daily lives and that he loves us very much. The Bible is like a picture, we look into the bible to read about God. Even though He may not be visible, he’s in our heart and daily lives. We trust in Him because we have refuge in Him and believe in our hearts 100% that He is with us.

    ” All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, throughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
