So I'm snuggling into my chair and I'm going to share with you, my dear friends, a precious gift I received.
My Bible is a "red-lettered" edition, which means that the Words of Jesus Christ are in red type. And of course, since Jesus' recorded Words are only found in the New Testament, the Old Testament is black lettered.
Over the years I've wondered why all The Words of God - in the Old and the New - weren't printed in red. After all, Jesus IS God, right? The Father and Jesus are ONE. Are they not?
"Hhmm", my heart would ponder...
Every now and again I would google, searching to see if there was a red-lettered Old and New Testament Bible. Surely there must be!
A couple of weeks ago I read something. Somewhere. And again it sparked my investigative search. Usually I would search through page one, and maybe two, of the Google listings, and that would be it. This time, I went further.
And guess what I found?
A King James Version Modern Version with ALL the Words of God in red. Old Testament and New. I was beside myself with glee.
Of course, I purchased it.
As I carefully opened God's Holy Word, I ran my fingers over the untouched-by-man Word of God. I felt honored to now own such a Bible. I opened to Genesis. As my eyes beheld, "Let there be light", I think my heart skipped a beat and I almost cried.
Yes, ALL of God's Holy Words are in red!
I've read my Bible cover to cover only twice in my almost 30 years. Shame on me. But, now it is time to do it again. In my new Bible.
As I take in all my Heavenly Father's Words in red, I know I will glean Wisdom and Understanding from His Truths.
Truths spoken, then recorded for me.
My mind will be renewed and my heart transformed.
Thank You, my Father for this precious, precious gift! Word of God speak, for Your Servant shall hear.
It's perfectly still out, not a creature is stirring. No cars running, because they can't go anywhere. As the sky lightens, I behold God's beauty and sigh.
All is well...
Thanks for coming by to share in this with me this morning. May your Sunday - and the week to follow - be blessed by the black or red letters of God's Holy Word.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
