Jesus’ view of Scripture was the linchpin on which His entire life was based. He was constantly saying, “Gegraptai” (It is written). Each time we encounter the Word of God, an unseen world of spiritual forces is at work. The new year will be filled with new battles, and we must be ready! If the Word doesn’t guide us, our emotions inevitably will. Let’s start the new year with new lenses and have our affections re-directed back to Him.
