By no stretch of the imagination are we Biblical scholars, we are just two girls who love Jesus and have a hunger and a thirst for His Word. Scripture Sunday will be a weekly feature in which we share the ways in which Jesus is speaking to our hearts through His Word.
I only referenced some of these verses but I wanted you to have them all.
Isn’t God just the greatest Author of all time?
Watch how He brings it all together ….
and this is only one teeny-tiny example ….
Like LeVar Burton says (remember Reading Rainbow):
“Of course, you don’t have to take *my* word for it.”
You can read it for yourself. (That part I added.) 😉
the Scripture from this video ….
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
Water From the Rock
17 The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, traveling from place to place as the Lord commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 So they quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.”
Moses replied, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the Lord to the test?”
3 But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of thirst?”
4 Then Moses cried out to the Lord, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.”
5 The Lord answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the place Massah[a] and Meribah[b] because the Israelites quarreled and because they tested the Lord saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?”
And Paul, in 1 Corinthians, ties it all together so beautifully, illustrating to us that Christ is the Rock who bridged the gap between the laws and regulations of the Old Testament and the grace and mercy of the New.
For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:1-4
I feel like this whole post is a bit of a hot mess. Here is one of the cuter parts of my mess. You can see why I have to lock the door if I want to get anything done. Quiet time is hard to come by around here. 😉
And here you can take *my* 😉 word for it …..
Take your hot mess to Jesus. And just wait to see what He can do with it. 😉
My name is Tara. I am a mama, a wife, a teacher, a sister, a daughter, and most importantly a follower of Jesus and a child of God. I have two little boys who love to run and jump and yell and scream and seem to love being attached to their Mama; Smith who is 6 and Charlie James who is 3. I have also been blessed with a “bonus” child, my stepdaughter Kaleigh, who just turned 12 and does her best to tolerate the antics of her little brothers.
