The call for every believer is get ready for a new experience of life day by day.  How fascinating that our 7 x 9 x 2 Bibles seem to have endless--even eternal--revelation regarding God and His system.  We will never get over the good news that gushes from it as long as we view it.

The Word of God is the most mysteriously and consistently flexible document to ever hit earth. Its Truth is so alive that while we look at it we readers are being studied by it.  The Bible is not Heaven's Journal as if it is merely the morning paper.

This thing breathes.

I'm guilty of reading the Word of God to support my pet convictions.  When that goes on, church rust settles upon my heart. After awhile, repeated posturing to convince God to say what we want Him to say, rust surely shuts down our abilities to be mobile as well as builds resistance to making perpetual adjustments.

It is true.  The Word of God never changes.  It is also true the Word of God is revealed to continually change us.  We are warned by His revelation to never change what He says.  The rub is when man rusts in the twenty-three things he knows well and shuts down a willingness and desire to explore what else and where else God leads.

Of course the religious scene is packed full of us; both liberal and conservative.  To our demise, each of those can live only by comparison to one another.  The free-flowing Word says that those who measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves to themselves, they are without understanding...II Cor. 10:12.  

God Truth is true.  After decades of enthusiastic study, it turns out that I am still one of His very dumbest. This can be seen clearly and quickly by watching and listening and reading my stuff.  However, I fit in because of the very nature of God's invitation.  I share this with you because God doesn't call us to be experts in Bible.

He calls us to respect it and stick with it tighter than rusted laziness which hinders our appetites to learn of God in His immaculate spiritual formation that is new everyday.
