A little hand-painted sign in a country store reads: “A candle begins as a piece of string dipped again and again into wax. With each dipping, more and more wax forms about the string, so that in the end, a light may be lit that burns softly and brightly.”
If each day you dip yourself into God’s Word, this soaking in the holy oil of the Holy Spirit will mean that the spark I offer in these Firestarters will set the fire of God’s love in your heart and keep on burning. So be careful about what you dip into. Let’s drop into Jesus so that nothing but Christ’s love burns within us.
By the way: today you will read a whole Book of the Bible in a minute or so!
Thursdays are dedicated to the New Testament except the Gospels.
In the season of Advent to Epiphany, we read the letters of John and Jude.
This is a sample of a new version of The Bible Through the Seasons as a daily family devotion. An ebook is planned. I’ll keep you posted! –Pastor Nick
