Day 2 - On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
Two Turtle Doves
The Old and New Testaments, which together bear witness to God's self-revelation in history and the creation of a people to tell the Story of God to the world.
The Word of God, the Holy Bible, God's Message - Whatever you call it, it is the truth. All of it from Genesis to Revelation. When it is closed and sitting on your coffee table, it's still true. If you turn to page 157 or 345, it's still true. When it says God created . . . that's true too! In a day and time when people want proof about everything, what can we say - what can we do? Where is the proof?
We are the living proof that the Bible is true. When we hid the Word in our hearts we begin to live it's truths out in our world. There is no way that the world can't notice the difference. When the world says lie, we tell the truth. When the world says cheat, we say don't. When the world says take it all, we say give it back.
When people ask why, 1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
