From the Pages to the PERSON

We see a printed page displaying a brand new car. The printed content provides a picture and an explanation of the car’s beauty, power, reliability and safety. However, for all the good things about the car, it is not any use to us until we experience it. Likewise, Scripture speaks about Christ’s beauty, power, trustworthiness and the security that He offers, but that is basic information. It is absolutely true information. It is needed information. It is valuable information. It gives us the basis for deciding to receive the offer of a saving, personal relationship with Jesus as our Savior and Lord. Unlike the newspaper information on the new car, that which Scripture offers is paid for in full and comes to us as a gift. I think Mary A. Lathbury had this in mind when she wrote, “Break Thou the bread of life, Dear Lord, to me, as Thou didst break the loaves beside the sea: beyond the sacred page, I seek Thee, Lord. My spirit pants for Thee, O living Word.” We see a “character” picture of Jesus and we learn about Him and from Him in the Bible. The next step is for us to act on the information and become related to the Person. Following that, in prayer and in the Word, seek His Presence regularly. Be not like those whom Jesus addressed in John 5:39-40, (Ye) “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me and ye will not come to Me, that ye might have life.” Selah! It would be foolish to look at the new car and settle for knowing about it, when you could actually have it. It is eternally fatal for us to know about Jesus and yet never to receive Him as our Savior and Lord. Let the pages bring you to the PERSON.  Ron
