Give Me A "Be"

The Bible is a wonderful book and we often look to it for our source of inspiration and truth, peace in times of trouble and instruction in time of confusion. But who do we make the transition from whats on the page to whats in our life? If we are not careful we begin to see the Bible as our "instruction manual" (which I have often heard it called and it most certainly is) but the Bible is so much more than a book of rules. Wen we begin to approach God's word as a list of do's and or don'ts we miss the heart of what it was intended to be and what WE were intended to be.

Jeremiah 31:33 says - “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

"The Law" (or more specifically God's words) are not something to be seen as outside of us, or as something we go to for information. It is to be who we are.  Gods law becomes not just something we do or laws to be followed but in the New Testament, God's law is talking about what we are becoming. It becomes something that is written on our hearts.

What we "do" no longer defines us as Christians because as Christians who we are is so much deeper than that. We follow God, and to not follow him would be against our nature as followers of Christ. And that is why "Being" is so much greater than simply "Doing"
