01 March: Limiting the Transcendent

With the end of an incredible era in yesterday’s Breadcrumb, I’m doing something today that, at first glance, appears to be illogical. We’re taking a huge leap, fifteen centuries into the future…

READ JOHN 1:1-34  Make notes, if you’d like, of what stands out for you. Feel free to use the “Leave a Comment” box below to also write some of your thoughts.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

In the Beginning was the Word

In the Beginning was The Word

When those claiming to follow the Creator God give equal time to all 39 books written and preserved up until our modern calendars began, a deeper story can be seen from the very beginning. It’s a story that’s played out on physical stage by a physical nation. But the remaining books show that, although created in our Maker’s likeness, it’s not possible for any human to fully speak, behave and think like Him.

However, the story was never meant to be limited to surface value only. To limit the Creator to the first five books – or to limit HIStory (history) to a purely physical/national drama thereafter – would be limiting our transcendent God. However, in order to release the Creator God from the box we’ve put Him in, today’s reading is about starting from the beginning again. Going back to the Book of Genesis Chapter One and, this time, understanding HIStory from the side of the Playwright, the Narrator, the Director, and the One who’s making it all happen – that is the Father of Creation and His Word.

But what about your thoughts – can you tell me what today’s “breadcrumb” is? Leave a note in the “Comments” box below to tell me what you think of today’s chapter.

Wanting to speak directly with the One behind the words? The rest of this webpage uses Jesus’ own prayer to help…[a]

THE LORD’S PRAYER:

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

Lord God of our ancestors, You’re the God who’s in heaven yet You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in Your hand and no one can withstand You. [2 Chronicles 20:6]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • The World: Pray for the government of Bangladesh[b]
  • Your Country: God’s Will in National/Global affairs
  • Yourself: Love for fellow believers
  • Your concerns for today
As a father has compassion on his children, so You Lord have compassion on those who fear You. You know how I was formed, You remember that I am dust. [Psalm 103:13-14]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Help me to be kind and compassionate to others, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave me. [Ephesians 4:32]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

Father I’ve seen what You did in the past and how You’ve carried me on eagles’ wings and brought me to Yourself. [Exodus 19:4]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”

When Jesus was questioned, tested, tricked or in His hour of great need, He always spoke things that were previously written in God’s Word.[c] Following these memory verses from ten topics, will help you learn 52 verses from the bible in a year! THIS WEEK’S MEMORY VERSE: Topic = The Creator’s Will

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” [Romans 8:28]
