2 Corinthians 3:14
But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ.
In Christ we can now receive insight and revelation of the things of God, for God’s Word is foolishness to those who are perishing, but God reveals all things He has freely given to us (believers) through the Holy Spirit who now lives in us. When you open the scriptures you can fellowship with God. Don’t just read the Bible, listen to what it says. God’s Word is God speaking to you. When you go to the Word of God don’t make it a religious duty. Go to the Word just as you would go to a friends house to spend time with them. Give the Word your full attention.
When you go to the house of God have your heart set on hearing from Him. For example in today’s society how often do you see two people at a restaurant and one person is talking but the other person is looking at their cell phone. You are not going to hear all that God is trying to say to you by sitting in church looking at your phone or thinking about other things.
Jesus one day went into the house of Martha and Mary, two sisters, and Martha got distracted trying to serve everyone, but Mary sat at Jesus’ feet taking in every word. Jesus said Mary had chosen the one thing that was needed, hearing from the Lord. So don’t get distracted when coming to the Bible or when hearing God’s Word preached. Jesus said he who has an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church, let him hear. So listen with all your heart for the Bible is God speaking to you.
