Letter about getting to know God personally...


Mon, May 11th, 2015
Posted in Wykoff Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

One of the joys of my life is reading the Bible. As I daily open the scriptures, I find its words bring comfort, encouragement, guidance, and also correction. The Apostle Paul wrote: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (II Timothy 3:16-17)

While I especially enjoy reading the New Testament with its focus on Jesus Christ, I also find reading the Old Testament to be valuable. Concerning these historical accounts, Paul wrote to the Romans: “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance

and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)

As I read the Old Testament, I recognize that it contains not only the history of Israel, but also many civil laws that were provided to the Jewish people as they came out of Egyptian slavery to provide a legal system to help govern them. I also recognize that Jesus Christ fulfilled the Old Testament through His death on the cross - replacing the regular animalsacrifices required in the OT - and that persons today are called into a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.

I would encourage you to read the Bible - recognizing that it is the word of God. Allow God to speak to your heart and guide you as you get to know the Author (God) in a personal way through what He has written.
