Actively living Scriptures!

God wants us to be an active part of scripture. Deuteronomy 30:14, "The word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it."

Micah 3:8, "I (Faith) am filled with power--With the Spirit of the Lord--And with justice and courage."

Micah 4:5, "Though all the peoples walk, Each in the name of his god, As for us (Faith), we will walk In the name of the Lord our God forever and ever." It's a choice. What god are you walking with?

Romans 11:36, "For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen." Notice the wording--from, through, and to, all encompassing of the past, present, and future.

I am learning how to take scripture and own it! :)

In closing, this weeks prayer, as part of the First Cup readings had the following portion of "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem."

The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight...descend to us, we pray; cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us today...O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel.
