When we told you about the power and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not telling clever stories that someone had made up. But with our own eyes we saw his true greatness. God, our great and wonderful Father, truly honored him by saying, “This is my own dear Son, and I am pleased with him.” We were there with Jesus on the holy mountain and heard this voice speak from heaven. All of this makes us even more certain that what the prophets said is true. So you should pay close attention to their message, as you would to a lamp shining in some dark place. You must keep on paying attention until daylight comes and the morning star rises in your hearts. But you need to realize that no one alone can understand any of the prophecies in the Scriptures.
2 Peter 1:16-20
When you read the words of a stranger, you miss much of the meaning of his writing because you don't know the author.
Understanding the Words of the Bible is the same. If you are without faith and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ the Bible is puzzling and perhaps even totally confusing.
Reading love letters that were not addressed to you may be instructive and even entertaining, but you will not be blessed like the one to whom they were written!
When you turn your heart to Jesus Christ and then turn your mind to reading the Bible, you will find that every Word written in Scripture is a love letter written especially for you!
"Lord Jesus, thank You for showing Your love for me in every possible way. And thank You Lord for expressing Your love for me in every Word of Scripture. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
