Story of the day:  Seeing God

     “There is a story about a teenage boy who was deeply interested in scientific subjects, especially astronomy.  So his father bought him a very expensive telescope.  Since the young fellow had studied the principles of optics, he found the instrument to be most intriguing.  He took it apart, examined the lenses, and made detailed calculations on the distance of its point of focus.  The youth became so absorbed in gaining a technical knowledge of the telescope itself that he never got around to looking at the stars.  He knew a lot about that fine instrument, but he missed seeing the wonders of the heavens.

     As Christians, to know all the facts and figures contained in the Bible is not the end for which God has given us this Book.  The purpose is that we might see God and know Him.”  Michael P. Green

Quote of the day:  D. L. Moody

“The Bible was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.”

Bible verse of the day:  1 John 4:16

“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.  God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

I praise You with my whole heart and I am so thankful and grateful for the love that You have for Your children.  I pray that my heart will continue to be filled with Your overflowing love and that it spills over into every area of my life.  I pray to not be distracted by the things of this world, for in doing so, I will miss out on seeing You and knowing You more.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen
