The 66 books of the scriptures that God inspired 40 authors over 1500 years, in three different languages, on three different continents to write reveal the nature and desire of our God. He also saw to it that these particular writings would be preserved through many years of people trying to eradicate them and those who believe in them. He did this that we sitting here today might still have an opportunity to read them and come to know the creator of all who loves us so dearly that He would send His Son so that we might be reconciled first to Him but also to one another. It still amazes me to think of it!
If there is a theme to be seen in the Words of our God it is “reconciliation.” That we, who are separated from a holy God, might come into fellowship with Him once again and having received His love might be able to extend it to others. The very cry of Jesus’ heart as He was about to go to the cross was that we might be one as He and the Father are one. What keeps us from this?
