“So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken” (John 2:22).
The reading, teaching, and preaching of God’s word is intended to transcend the moment; offering a cumulative and, sometimes, delayed effect. The portion of scripture that might, today, seem dry and irrelevant will someday, unexpectedly, give birth to comforting illumination, meaningful insight, and renewed commitment. Stay in the Word. More importantly, let it stay in you. It is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.
