"The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever."
The picture above is a reminder of sorts to me. I love the "grid" of that window -- not to mention the beautiful stone work around it. At our Bible-study the other night, our fearless leader said something that struck me. She held up her two hands, and intertwined her fingers to form a "grid" of sorts. She said, "The Bible needs to be a grid through which everything in our life is filtered."
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ (as I am), this probably isn't a mind-blowing thought for you. And yet, for me, there was something about the way she held up her hands, and used the word "filtered."
The Word of God is many things. It's God's way of communicating with us, firstly. Also, it is a reminder of Christ's sacrifice on the cross. It protects us from the corruption of the world by giving us clear insights into right and wrong. Those are just a few things. But always, it should be our filter on the world.
I knew this principle. But, I'm a visual person. Seeing my friend hold up her hands in a grid, cemented the "filter" idea for me.
Have you had any great "ahaaa" moments recently?
