This painting is about how so much more debt and meaning there is to the word of God. It's a given that we should read His word and start knowing what the Bible is about. But this is the living and breathing word of God. It's alive, it's active. And so should our response be according to what we read. It's special, it's intimate and God is reaching out to us through His word. It should be more important than anything. We should be running towards His word, we should want to know it in debt and we should want to be filled with it. Make time and sacrifice to learn and read His word and let your response be active, to put into practice what you read. Ask questions, pray, declare and proclaim His word and be guided by His spirit doing so.
"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:5-6‬ ‭NIV‬‬
"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it-not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it-they will be blessed in what they do."
‭‭James‬ ‭1:22-25‬ ‭NIV‬‬
