Sixteen years ago, my boyhood love for God’s Word had sadly diminished. The example of my grandparents had been forgotten. Then, in the midst of a crisis, I was challenged to systematically and thoughtfully read the Bible with the simple intent to know God.
Last week, we noted that the early Church was formed by the proclamation of God’s Word. Thisis not new to the New Testament. Already, in Genesis 1, we read how God spoke and male and female were created. God’s very words are creative, they bring life! Yet, it is not life in the singular. It is life in community.
