Do you sometimes find God’s Word incomprehensible (e.g. Revelation, Daniel); boring/tedious (e.g. lists of names, counts of people); designed to trip you up doing a reading (e.g. Nehemiah 8:4 where Ezra read the Law of Moses from daybreak to noon, with tongue-tripping names)?
Do you skip over it, struggle with it, give up?
Paul reminds Timothy (in 2 Timothy 3:16) God’s Word is useful – all of it – for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction, training – if we want to be one of the people of God.
God has a place in His heart and in His Book for everyone.
God took the trouble to ensure these people were included in His Book. He gives us assurance that when He says that those who are followers of Jesus have their names written in heaven in the Lamb’s Book of Life, it is so!
1 Cor 1:27 ”…but God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of the world and the despised things – and the things that are not – to nullify the things that are…. it is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus.”
We may not have an important family name, we may not live in an area with a good reputation, we may not belong to a large local fellowship, but in Jesus we are one of God’s special people.”
The biggest family in God’s Kingdom are the Arenots.
Praise God that you are important in His sight.
