You Are What You Read

12 Jan

God’s Word:I John 2:1-17

God’s Message to Me: (My interpretation of what God is saying to me through these verses)

The world is full of books, written for a variety of purposes.  Books to inspire, books to entertain, books to deceive, books to teach evil, books to teach how to do things, etc. etc.  My caution to you is to avoid the books that proclaim evil as good.  And how will you know how to differentiate between evil and good?  Only one way—read My book first of all.  My book is My love letter to you, to guide you down the path of a joy filled life and to avoid the pitfalls the world offers. I offer you My love so you will have an abundance to share with others.

My book offers you hope and a future of peace in the midst of life’s storms.  It offers you the pathway to heaven—into My presence for eternity.  Read My book first and let it guide you in your choice of additional books to read—for you become what you read.

You can identify those who read and do what My book teaches.  They are those who love others, family, friends, all they meet.  My book teaches you to love one another so that others can see the light of My love also.  You will learn in my book that by loving the world ways and goods squeezes My love out of your life.  The world wants its own way, wanting. . .wanting. . .wanting.. . .more and more things and to feel important. . . . wanting everything for one’s self. These wants of the world isolate you from Me. My book teaches you the important things to want in life—want what is good, pure and holy and share My love with others.  What a wonderful world that would be!

God’s Question for Me: How long has it been since you opened My book and let Me speak to your heart?

God’s Promise to Me: My Word will give you a hope, peace and joy that is “out of this world” and far surpasses any temporary joys other books may give you.

My Song to God:

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path

When I feel afraid
Think I’ve lost my way
Still You’re there right beside me
And nothing will I fear
As long as You are near
Please be near me to the end

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path

Now I will not forget Your love for me and yet
My heart forever is wandering
Please be my guide and hold me to Your side
And I will love You to the end

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet
And a light unto my path
