God’s Big Picture

the promised one book

Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures. And they approached the village where they were going, and He acted as though He were going farther. But they urged Him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day is now nearly over.” So He went in to stay with them. When He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight. They said to one another, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?”….. Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures (Luke 24:27-32, 44-45)

I want my heart to burn as I see this story of God and what he is accomplishing in us through Christ. I don’t want to read a little Scripture and take away inspirational thoughts or pluck verses out of context to make me feel good or meet a need I may have. I don’t want to use it only as a guidebook on how to live or to just settle for knowledge and doctrine. I want to see and understand God’s big picture and who He wants me to see….Jesus!

Jesus is all over the Old Testament and we will begin by seeing him in Genesis. I plan to cover a chapter each week on the blog as an online study and would love to have you join in! I would love to dig into the word together and my prayer is that God will open our eyes and minds to see Jesus and make our hearts burn!
