Prodigal: Sometimes the flock seems to be over there, and I am over here.
Me: Yes, that seems to be the case…what is really the truth?
Prodigal: Yes, I need to be reminded.
This is from the book Men of Faith: Jonathan Edwards by David J. Vaughan
Resolved, to study the Scriptures so steadily, constantly and frequently, as that I may find, and plainly perceive myself to grow in knowledge of the same.
We have God’s word so that he can speak to us so that we can know His thoughts at times. We have words that have touched christian men, and women for centuries. You have studied his word for years, but it can still touch your heart. It can still teach in a moment where you need to grow.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
