2 Timothy 3:16 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, (NIV)

I’ve never been able to read the same book twice nor watch the same movie twice.  It took me awhile to learn that, because I’ve read the entire Bible, it’s not in the same category as other books.  Because it’s the living word of God and because it’s only through the interpretation of the Holy Spirit that understanding can come, every time I read the words in the Bible my understanding changes, actually deepens, as the Holy Spirit interprets it to me at the present point of my life and my ability to understand.  When we open the pages of the Bible we must first ask the Holy Spirit to give us understanding.  Every word we read is a word for the day.  Without the Holy Spirit the words on the pages are only words.  Every day, as we open the pages, let us do it with openness to the Holy Spirit to show us how to apply the words we read to our lives this very day.
