Coming alive

I love it when I read a portion of scripture and it comes alive again. Take this well known passage from Luke 11 and read it as Eugene Peterson puts it:

“Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This is not a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your little boy asks for a serving of fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? If your little girl asks for an egg, do you trick her with a spider? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing—you’re at least decent to your own children. And don’t you think the Father who conceived you in love will give the Holy Spirit when you ask him?” (Luke 11:10-13 MSG)

What do you think of that? Awesome hey?

Next time you read a verse and it comes alive for you please send me a message and let me know.

Living in Grace
