Scripture at Sunrise 1.7.10

“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.”  -Psalm 119:18

Al Mohler on Daily Bible Reading:

“I never let the day go by without reading God’s Word and I generally try to get there early and end there late. I’m a night person rather than a morning person so my best reading comes at night.

I would just encourage opening it up, reading it and studying it seriously. See the big picture of the unfolding God’s story. See the individual passages and texts as they begin to open all new windows into understanding who God is and what God does and he expects of us and has done for us. The Bible can’t be boring, not if you understand it. I was reading something the other day—it was an inventory list of things for the temple—and thinking this is the most minute stuff. The laver has to be this size and all the rest. Then you realize that this is a God of such specificity that he’s going to give us everything we need not to get this wrong. I found it fascinating and don’t even know how many times I’ve read it over before. There’s a theology in a inventory list right here. This is a part of the story. And it’s also a part of the story that we don’t have to worry about that anymore. Now that Christ has perfectly fulfilled all that we don’t have to make sure in church we perfectly fulfill all that, we just have to take a Bible and a pulpit and teach.”
