This question also reminded me how reliant I have become on technology yes I have numerous Bibles, commentaries to help me when I’m preparing a sermon. But how would I cope if the internet went down / was wiped when in conversation with an unbeliever, new believer? I know I will not be a person who can recite numerous Bible verses in conversation, but I want to be able to paraphrase Bible verses and be able to reference which book they can be found in.
We are called to be His ambassadors 2 Corinthians 5:20 “So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” [NRSV] Ambassadors are sent by their government, company to rely a message sometimes written, other times verbally. We are to proclaim God’s message to the lost and we can only do so if we take time to learn Scripture, and live it out in our daily lives.
This week think, which Bible verse keeps you on track with God when your going through struggles? And how many Bible verses do you know either word-for-word or paraphrased knowing which books of Bible they are in.
