More than words from the distant past …

“I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel” (1 Kings 6:13).

These words come to us from such a long time ago – yet they are more than words from the distant past. The Holy Spirit speaks these words of encouragement to us. He takes words from the ancient past, and he brings them home to our hearts. For us, they become more than words from the past and words for the past. They become the living Word of God – words that call us on into God’s future, with great expectation of his abundant blessing.
