Now take a few minutes and consider John 17 (here @ Bible Gateway); focus, if you will on John 17:21 – 24 (here @ Bible Gateway).
Now consider John 16:13 (here @ Bible Gateway).
Jesus, through His life, death, resurrection, and ascension has brought us into unity with Himself and the Father. Further, He has sent the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth.
We are unified with Christ, we have the Holy Spirit to lead us through the Book He inspired. Through Christ we have immediate access to the Father. Why would we want to revert to having one man meet with God and then tell us what He had learned?
Why would we insist on ecclesiastical layers of insulation between us and the Word of God? Why would we turn to books about the Bible, when we have not only the Word of God, but resident in us the One who inspired it?
Is it fear?
If so, of what are we afraid? We have a loving God who sent His Son to die for us while we were helpless, ungodly, sinners, and enemies (Romans 5:6 - 10 (here @ Bible Gateway)). Do we think that He would react negatively to us trying to get to know Him better through His Word and His Spirit?
That seems to be either lack of trust, or maybe, just laziness.
Is it that we are not sure we know how?
That is easily remedied. Contact me. I will help you.
