Out of all the things I could possibly love & be devoted to in this world & beyond, it is in the pages of Scripture that I find the written instruction to place God first of all & above all in each area of my life.
A Makers instruction comes that I might understand the purpose, design & intent of the creation. It is not left to chance or luck. The information is provided & given as the Creator is genuinely connected to the creation just as a child is genuinely connected to the parent. In this there is mystery, in this there is love, in this there is care, in this there is discipline & concern. When there is transgression there can also be redemption…in this there is Christ & Christ alone.
To not know Christ or willingly forsake His direction & call is to travel a wide road with many on a pilgrimage or celebration of things discovered but not understood. The void not being identified or appreciated the pilgrimage continues on, always learning but never understanding.
He said, “Go and tell this people:
“Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6: 9&10
Jesus spoke in the Old Testament as He did at Creation as He did in the New Testament as He does, praying now in heaven.
