Becoming A Character In The Bible

Becoming A Character In The Bible…

When I was a child, my parents called me Eddie. They bought me a children’s book called “Eddie goes to Washington.” My Father wrote an inscription, noting that the boy had my name.

So when I read that book, I could picture that I was that boy going to Washington DC, to the White House, and meeting the President.

Today they actually have children’s books that insert the name of the child in the books, so the child feels part of the story.

Herein lies a secret to reading the Bible. Don’t just read the Bible as if it’s a book about other things, other people, or general principles.

Read it as a Book that’s about God and you. God so loved… Eddie, Jim, Susan, Linda, that if… Bill, Maria, David, would believe in Him… Take it personally and specifically.

Whenever you read of anyone, whoever, or whatever applies to you, insert your name into the Holy Word and see what happens.

Put your name in the Book, because you are in the Book. Get yourself into the Book and the Book will get into you.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John15:16

Today, read the Bible by inserting your name into scripture. Make it personal, make it about you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
