“Scripture Glasses” ~ John Calvin

“…[God] added the light of his word in order that he might make himself known unto salvation…”

For as the aged, or those whose sight is defective, when any book, however fair, is set before them, though they perceive that there is something written are scarcely able to make out two consecutive words, but, when aided by glasses, begin to read distinctly, so Scripture, gathering together the impressions of Deity, which, till then, lay confused in our minds, dissipates the darkness, and shows us the true God clearly.  (John Calvin, the Institutes, I.VI.I)

and you thought it was just “devotions”…

Question: What has God shown you about Himself this week in your personal bible study?  What has God shown you about your relationship to him, and with him, this week in your personal bible study?
