Establishing Connection…


2016 03Mar MSM FeatureI used to be a lot more concerned with which version of the Bible I delved into…accuracy is important, but so is retention. It’s imperative the Word and the Spirit make a connection that resonates and impacts our lives. Of late, I have had a growing appreciation for reading from The Message and comparing the language to other translations.

For me, this helps bring scripture to life in terms I can better relate to. Can one really go wrong pondering and meditating on the Words of Life?

I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11 (NIV)

Below is a passage I have been giving a lot of thought to lately. I love this concept!

I call to you, God, because I’m sure of an answer. So—answer! Bend your ear! Listen sharp!

Paint grace-graffiti on the fences; take in your frightened children who are running from the neighborhood bullies straight to you. Psalm 17:6-7 (The Message)

Grace graffiti? Let’s all meet in the alley after dark, and bring your spray paint! What does the story of YOUR grace graffiti look like?
