John 14:21

"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me" (John 14:21).
It struck me anew this morning how important it is for God's Word to be so strongly fixed in our minds that it becomes the dominant influence in our thoughts, our attitudes, and our actions. By bringing God's Word to bear on specific situations that arise in our lives we develop convictions. By knowing God's Word we thereby know God's will in a situation. It is through God's Word alone that our minds are reshaped and our values are renewed. Posted by Picasa

Is that your Bible pictured? I'm curious because some of mine look like that inside (shameful though it is to say, I also have used highlighter pen in them!)

God Bless.

Joe said...

You are so right! We need to read God's word, study God's word, lean on God's word, understand God's word and live God's word.

ukok, thanks for dropping in for a visit. Yes, it is my Bible and like you, I too have highlighted areas. I've used different inks for different years until I began repeating colors. :)

Joe, always a pleasure to hear from you. Thanks again for mentioning my site at your place!
