Today, I was looking through my library and pulled out a book I had forgotten I owned. It was an exciting discovery, even though the book had been there for years. When you have a library of 2,000 books, sometimes, this happens. You forget what you have purchased in the past.
I came across the title of a book I really wanted to read. I knew the book would be hard to find, but I was going to start looking for it. While going through my library, I found the title of the book I was looking for. It had been under my nose the whole time. What I wanted was already mine.
It’s the same when we receive revelation from the Holy Spirit. To us, it’s new and exciting, but the truth had been there all along. The Bible is written and broken down into the Old and New Testaments. We understand that a testament is a will that is left to someone. When someone passes, they leave their last will and testament for their heirs.
The Bible says of the believer that we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ Jesus. That means the Bible is the last will and testament Jesus left to us. When Jesus died, the will was put in force for every believer. What a joy to grow in grace and discover there’s so much more to His Word and nature. Every day can be an exciting day of new knowledge of our great redeemer.
I’m still learning NEW things that happened to me when I was saved at 7. The process of renewing the mind is simply finding out what is already ours in Christ.
The Bible says in the book of Romans, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern, what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” This adds so much weight to the truth in the Word that says, “I will answer before they ask.”
Jesus already paid for my sins before I even knew I needed a Savior. He truly answered before I ever asked.
Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” By studying the Word of God, the saved can find out what is theirs in Christ.
That peace, hope, love, acceptance, is already in your library of faith. It has been purchased by the blood of Jesus.
