“Jesus provided far more God-revealing signs than are written down in this book.” John 20:30
We live by signs–road signs, signs above stores to give us a hint what’s being offered inside, signs showing us where to enter a building, and from inside, how to exit. Jesus provided proper signage for Christians to use throughout his ministry, and as we open our Bibles, the signs are readily available to lead us through our spiritual and faith journey.
Do we need signs in bright neon color today to notice them? Our lives have gotten so multiple dimensional that I often miss the obvious instructions. “Enter here…drop your recyling in this bin…left lane for the airport.”
When I discovered The Message Bible, it was as if it became the “neon signage” for my faith journey. The words flashed in my mind and went directly to my soul. Sometimes, we need to shake up our soul to receive God-revealing signs.
Lord, be with us in whatever way we can see you best. Amen.
