5 Minute Friday - Relevant

Here goes: unscripted, unedited (scary stuff):

All I can come up with, with my head feeling ready to explode due to flu, is as follows:


Is the Old testament relevant to us today?
Yes - in that it points us to Christ, and shows how gracious our God is.  And all those beautiful stories show us that no matter how badly we mess up, there is hope - hope in our redeeming God.

Is the "law" relevant to us today?
Yes - in that it shows us our need of a Christ and a Saviour.  We cannot do anything on our own!

Is the New Testament relevant to us today?
Yes - People haven't changed and neither has God.  We have need of a saviour, Jesus.  And there is much in the New Testament that teaches us how to live our lives with Christ as Lord and Saviour!

Heb 4 v 12:  For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


That's it,
God bless
Tracy
