😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. Granted, I haven’t read it completely through a multitude of times, but I’ve read through the Bible enough to know that I will never completely understand the Bible in my lifetime. What I do know is that as I grow more in the Spirit, I’m able to understand how the Lord uses His Word to enlighten and encourage me to share Him and grow our relationship even more. Last week I read in Deuteronomy 6:4-7 how we are to love our Lord with our whole heart, soul, and strength. We are to keep this command upon our hearts and share them at every moment possible. When we sit at home. When we walk along the road. When we lie down and when we get up. We know this, right? But how about 6:8-9? We are told to tie these commands (love our Lord with all our heart, soul, and strength) as symbols on our hands. Bind them to our foreheads. Writes them on our door frames and on our gates. Our minds can so easily be turned and swayed. God knows that we need to keep physical reminders in front of us at all time. Have you ever noticed how a sports fan has the jersey, hat, mug, keychain, flag, bumper sticker, phone app, etc. that always opens the door to conversation? Way back in Deuteronomy, Moses is telling us to surround ourselves with these types of symbols, so that the Lord is ever present and at the forefront of our minds. That we have these reminds to allow us to share our relationship with Him at every moment. How many times do you look at your phone a day? What if you made a picture of Jesus your home screen? How would that change your thoughts and interactions? What if you wore something every day that pointed to your faith? How would that open conversations about Him? What if you changed your ringtone to a Christian song? How many more times a day would that song draw your thoughts closer to God? Share with me the different reminders and symbols you keep in front of you, that daily draw you closer to our Lord and encourage you to share Him with others? Bless others and be blessed.
