“Close, Open and Point” ?

Absorbing God’s Word

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5

Applying God’s Word

Sometimes, to find a scripture for the weekly “Challenge”, I close my eyes, open my Bible and point. That’s how I found the above scripture this week. :>) Try it!

This Old Testament scripture, from Isaiah’s prophetic vision, describes Jesus laying down His life for us. It’s kind of mind blowing, when we think about the fact that Isaiah lived 700 years prior to Jesus’ birth.

The Old Testament is filled with prophecies that have already come true. It makes me believe those prophecies that haven’t been fulfilled, still will be.

Accounting of God’s Word

Do I only believe that parts of the written word are true or that all of it is true?
