"A bible that's falling apart, usually belongs to someone who isn't..."

" A bible that's falling apart, usually belongs to someone who isn't..."

- Charles Spurgeon

So I have to admit that I feel both a little bit jealous and little bit guilty when I look at this picture on my Pinterest ( you should totally find and follow me), because it become clear to me that I am not reading the Word like I COULD be. Yes, I read my bible other than on Sundays. I'm not a luke warm Christian ( at least I hope I'm not in God's eyes), I do follow scripture and embed it into my heart and life, but compared to this bible, I feel like I have never invested myself in any type of biblical study.

THUS THE GUILT.

Furthermore, I can only imagine the fulfillment this owner must experience in their life. Based on the devotion clearly demonstrated. It's obvious that they have dived into scripture, and attempted to embed it in their heart. I want this type of knowledge that is only acquired by those who seek it.

THUS THE JEALOUSY

My cat like self got curious, and I decided to look up some of the scriptures that were captured in this image (though I'm sure it was one of MANY note filled pages).

"But because of this great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions-it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."



Ephesians 2: 4-10



Sounds pretty "note worthy" to me!

Justification!


Yes, that is me! I do not have a bible that looks like this nor does it look any where close to as loved is this. And WHY?! Because I simply don't read it like a life manual as I SHOULD. And again WHY? WELL....





1. Laundry



2. Child Prodigy



3. Cleaning



4. Grocery Shopping



5. DVR Shows



6. Work



7. Commute



8. Family



9. Entertainment every once in a while



10. SLEEP






All of these things are vital to my survival too. RIGHT?!?!?!






God says they are important, but they are not first.






"In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success."



- Proverbs 3:6





SOOOOOO.... Maybe I should strive to have a bible that serves as life support instead of an occasional crutch.






...and that my Dear, was all she wrote...
