reason #348 why I love the Bible

A good friend of mine started her application to a PhD program in NT with the true statement that the Bible can be a pain in the ass.  In a word, yes.

But we stick with it.  I stick with it.  (She does too, just in case you were worried.)  I stick with it for more reasons than I can count.  The reason for today is because there are times when you run across a line with startling beauty.  It catches you off guard and points you to the beauty of God.  Like this one in 2 Peter 1:19.  It ends with my (current) absolute favorite image for Christ.

You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

 

This, says our Bible, is what Christ’s coming will be like in our hearts.
