It consists of 3-dozen-and-three Books which all center on the same truth. Its history is clear & its purpose is wonderful. Sadly, though, the Old Testament often gets passed by or written past for something a little more current, or a little more relevant, or a little more . . . promising!
But whether negligence stems from ignorance or indifference, not spending time in the Old Testament does us a massive disservice as we forgo the comfort and forfeit the benefit of God's gracious promises made to people like us.
So . . . let's take time to marinate in the promises contained for generations & made by the God who refuses to lie; and let's take time to celebrate those promises made to us, & let's take the time to share those very same promises with those, with all, for whom our Jesus came. And, dear friends, he came for all!
