It is always interesting to give our spin on life, what we go through, or what conclusions we come to about others; however, nothing is more exciting or important than the word of God.
Today let's get in the word. There are six scriptures listed below. Over the next week, let's look deeper into the chapter and what is going on. How do these scriptures speak to you? For those that are new to the bible, let's learn a few new scriptures. For the veterans, let's revisit some bible verses about mystery.
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets.
Amos 3:7 ( NIV)
19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
11 He told them, "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables
Mark 4:11 (NIV)
2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,
Colossians 2:2 (NIV)
16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:
He appeared in the flesh,
was vindicated by the Spirit,[a]
was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory
1 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
9 he[a] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
Ephesians 1:9-10 (NIV)
"We all have access to the word of God, but will we take the time to read it? We make time for what we want, yet expect God to be at our beck and call. We won't fast unless it is convenient for us. We won't read the bible or pray because we are too busy. Yet, we talk about loyalty and being treated fairly. The question for the day is, are you obedient?" - Alston Shropshire
