Do you know the RED letters?

Book piles in the wild 5

Not all book are necessarily supported by this site.

In this day and age where knowledge is so accessible people are reading anything

Even some Christian leaders are giving messages that are boarding on self-help rather than Gods help and it can get confusing.  Unless you know the things that God or Jesus said then you don’t know the difference between what is crooked and what is straight.

We are starting to forget the promises of God because we’re not reading the promises of God and meditating on them and letting them soak into our soul… or as Eugene Peterson the writer of The Message Bible says in reference to reading the Bible he says “Eat this book”…

Are we reading fast food Bible rather than getting our teeth stuck into the succulent tenderized piece of Gospel. Are we reading a second hand view of the Gospel rather than getting stuck in and see what Christ says directly to us

Are you listening to the watered down, ‘makes me feel good’ type of words written by the latest international best-selling author … or are you going straight to the source.

There are some really good authors, and there are a whole lot of others that are just a waste of your time and a waste of your money… choose the books you read wisely.

Do you know what are the promises of God are?

Have you read Gods commands?

Get into your Bible… take note of all the red parts and take special note… these are the words of Jesus… read them… soak in them.

If you don’t have a Bible that has the words of Jesus in red… then get a highlighter and in the time your reading your Bible go through and highlight the words that Jesus said.

If you are looking into what Christianity is… don’t look at Christians, we get it wrong often too… just like hundreds of heroes that we read in The Bible.

If you are searching for God read the words of Jesus.

  1. Great encouragement Goose. Have you heard of the Green Bible? Similar to the red letter edition, but a little different… http://www.greenletterbible.com/

    It includes the following “distinctive features”:
    * Green-Letter Edition: Verses and passages that speak to God’s care for creation highlighted in green
    * Contributions by Brian McLaren, Matthew Sleeth,
    N. T. Wright, Desmond Tutu, and many others
    * A green Bible index and personal study guide
    * Recycled paper, using soy-based ink with a cotton/linen cover

    • ha ha… no I had never heard of it…. classic!
      Although I would have to say, as important as it is to be stewards of this world, wouldn’t a version that highlights the promises of God or the encouragements be of more value… what has the most eternal value?

      • Classic indeed! I bet like other green waste, it composts really well… ;o)

        If we’re talking eternal value, I’d be going for a version that highlights the gospel message – the power of God for the forgiveness of sin. I’m guessing Romans 6:23 would be well and truly highlighted in that one… :o)
