The word of God is like a lion; you don't have to defend it, just turn it loose." - Charles Spurgeon

Jonathan Edward's own conversion in the spring had given him a inward 'sweet' sense both of Christ and of the way of salvstion. "My soul" he reminisced, "was led away in pleasant views and contemplation of them. And my mind was greatly engaged, to spend my time on reading and meditating on Christ and the beauty and excellency of his person, and the lovely way of salvation, by free grace in Him"..

Yes, My goal is to go deeper into the word. For This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. - 1 Corinthians 4:1. I want to sink in deeper saturation of the Word. I want to let the scripture read me. I wanted to cultivate as a discipline but never really achieved. So i wanna try this method of 'blogging' to help me. The texts Below are not really mine (Ref: From web pages and another person blog.. hahaa)

Know who you are in the WORD....know the WORD completely....and you will find all the answers for eternal life in the WORD.... "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels." - Rev.3:5. If you do not and can not believe the WORD - you are lost forever. "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them" - 2nd Cor. 4:3-4. To understand the WORD of God, you need the Holy Spirit - "For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ." - I Cor.2:11-16. Religion does not know Jesus Christ -".....they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" - Matt. 15:14. Ask the Holy Spirit into your heart, believing that He will teach you all things....then live what He has taught you by the WORD....keeping the faith in Him.

The Sufficiency of Scripture
The uniqueness of Scripture is that it is axiomatic, self-evident truth. Psalm 19:7-9 gives us the most comprehensive statement on the authority and sufficiency of Scripture found anywhere in the Bible.
- The law of the Lord is perfect, RESTORING THE SOUL.
- The testimony of the Lord is sure, MAKING WISE THE SIMPLE.
- The precepts of the Lord are right, REJOICING THE HEART;
- The commandment of the Lord is pure, ENLIGHTENING THE EYES.
- The fear of the Lord is clean, ENDURING FOREVER;
- The judgments of the Lord are true; they are RIGHTEOUS ALTOGETHER.
People whose minds are saturated with God's Word and submissive to His thoughts have a wisdom that in eternity will prove superior to all the secular wisdom in the world. -John Piper
