There is a legend (maybe true) about two cardinals of the Roman church who were observing some work being done on a new building – a basilica. One commented to the other, “No longer do we have to say, ‘Silver and gold have I none!'”
The other cardinal responded, “True. Nor can we continue to say, ‘In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.'”
If your study of Scripture isn’t leading you into real-izing (bringing into real life) the sort of supernatural fellowship and activities you encounter there, you may be missing someOne.
If you are stuck reading the Book as if it were an exciting novel, and find yourself wishing at times that you could have lived in those days, ask for the rest of the story. The people in those days longed to see these days.
The rest of the stories happen today and tomorrow. They have your name written in them. And the names of the fruit you leave when you are done with your part.
Brace up. Breathe deep. Dive.
