here @ Bible Gateway) came up in the reading plan I have been following for the past three years. True to form, the Lord showed me something I had never seen before. This time, however, I did not make it much past the first 4 verses (here @ Bible Gateway); which depending on how the version you read deals with the Greek, is the first couple of sentences Peter pens to the recipients.
What I saw is not the point. The fact that I saw it, that it was new to me after so much engagement and exposure to this letter is. As I turned to the book I wondered if, in fact, my experience of seeing something new would again hold true. As I shared, I didn’t make it past the first two sentences.
In Psalm 119:18 (here @ Bible Gateway), David prays that the Lord would open his eyes so that he could behold wonderful things from the Law, His Word. That’s the point. This Book, the Bible, is unique. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, revealing the nature and character of God, with unfathomable layers of knowledge of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
I am continually stunned at its depth.
