Depth…

One of the things that always surprises me and delights me about Scripture is the way that seemingly simple lines of Scripture contain great depth. My Dad famously preached a sermon on the word “The” in a certain verse of Scripture. One word contained a whole sermon.

So I loved when I came across this little diagram. It’s a line that most of us know very well. It’s a line I can’t read without singing the little worship chorus that contains these words.

Look at the depth of this little phrase! The numbers of things it tells us, especially when read in light of the rest of Scripture (which is the right way to read Scripture…not isolating a line, but holding it in tension with the other things the Bible tells us).

So my prayer for you until tomorrow, dear friends, is that you may be still, and know that God is God. With all the depth contained in that simple phrase.
