MORNINGTIME 2557
 
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING. John 15:5. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH. 2 Timothy 2:15. Without Christ, the Bible is a book of stories and fables written by old dead people. It has no relevance to anything because none of it can be proven, or so I've heard by my unbelieving friends who are doing their best to try to push God out of their life. And that's not working very well at all. But to the Believer, the Bible, the Inspired Word of God, is packed full of Faith Building true stories more relevant to today that this morning’s newspaper. Christ is Life and the Bible is Full of Christ. Why are there two such extreme different points of view? To those people outside of Christ, there is only death and destruction with only one nagging reality they can't shut out. That reality is a need for Christ with no other understanding of Him. They can work hard to try to silence that Knowledge of the Need For Christ, and that is hard work. Otherwise, they will start to follow that "Need" to possibly, Salvation. Most purposefully, eventually, shut down that wooing of the Holy Spirit, but it takes some serious work to do so. But to the Believer, those stories are True and the facts are Real, because all those stories deal with, among many other things, the emotions and human nature of people, throughout Time. Their hurts, loves, fears, and joys back then are all the same today. King David sinning, and Repenting, hits the same nerves today as back them. We can feel just what he felt and fully relate to all he went through. Human nature doesn't change and his Answer then is the same Answer today. That Answer is Christ and Him Crucified. Throughout ALL of history, Sin is the problem, and Christ is the Answer. He Is how to, Be Blessed.
