"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high." (Hebrews 1:1-3 KJV) Yesterday was Easter Sunday, or Resurrection Sunday. It is the day set aside that we remember the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus is alive! That's something we should celebrate every day. We know from the Scriptures that after Jesus arose from the grave that He appeared to many and talked with many. This is a true story, not just a fable as some people say. And although we have not seen Him, He still speaks to us today through His word. The Scripture is a record of God speaking to His people. And His word is alive and active. "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do." (Hebrews 4:12-13 KJV) Yes, God's word was preached in verbal form, lived out in person by Jesus, and finally placed in written form which we have today. It is powerful, constantly working in human lives. It shows us where we are wrong in what we do, say, think and even feel. We would like to hide some of our thoughts and actions but we cannot. God knows everything. He knows what is best for us and He wants us to have what is best for us. That is why He has given us His powerful word. He wants us to talk to Him but He also wants us to listen to Him. One of the most encouraging passage in God's Word is where He tells us that it is His inspired word. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV) The Bible is God's love letter to us. It teaches children and adults how to receive salvation, provides guidance for living godly lives and gives us strength, courage, comfort and so much more. However, it won't do us any good unless we read it. And not just read it, but listen to what God is saying to us. People want to hear from God, but they don't want to take the time to read His word and spend time with Him. God wants to speak to us. Do you want to hear Him?
