Bible Challenge - "FOOD AND DRINK "Part 3
Good Evening to All!
I like these Bible Challenges because they really help you "get into the Word". We all have heard the "stories" of Noah's Ark, how Jesus turned water into wine, the Prodigal Son and many other parables and happenings. We have memorized verses like ; The Lord is my shepherd . . . , Make a joyful noise unto the Lord . . . , For God so loved the World . . . and many, many more. What we don't remember are things like the following questions, which make us have to delve into the Word of God and look into the scriptures. While we are there sometimes we get so interested in what we are reading we just keep right on going. Before we know it, we have read the complete chapter. THAT IS WHAT I AM AFTER. I would like to get people RE-interested in reading God's Word and finding out how we came to be. That we DID NOT COME FROM APES, there was NOT a BIG BANG that just happened. Our planet was meticulously created because God looked upon it and said "this is GOOD", and we were lovingly formed by God and He breathed His breath of life into us. Therefore I feel that it is important that we know more than just "highlights" of His Word. If it was not important to Him for us to know, He would not have included it in His book.
