Nothing is more wonderful than the Bible. We can build our lives on the promises of God. As we read in Heb. 4:12-13, that word is alive! It speaks to all people wherever they live.
The Bible also demands a response. God's word is a discerner of our thoughts and intentions. And one day we will give an account of ourselves before God. In that day, nothing will escape him. As we see below, God's word (logos) of revelation will be answered by our word (logos) of explanation.
A new year prompts questions. Sometime, maybe this coming year, Jesus will return as King and Judge, and he alone will sift the wheat from the chaff in my life. Jesus didn't say when that would be, he just told us to live in anticipation of it at all times.
I don't know about you, but I think it's time I had an honest, no-nonsense, face-on-the carpet talk with the Lord. Does he reign supreme over every detail of my life? I want to live in anticipation that he could come back tomorrow. Or today. I want to be ready.
