Hold out your cup

God pours grace and peace into our lives. Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way; life can be pretty rough at times. But through it all He is pouring grace and peace. I need to hold out the vessel of myself, my life, and allow him to fill my cup. And then I need to share it with others.

Eph1_1-2
Ephesians 1:1-3 (New Living Translation)
This letter is from Paul, chosen by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus. I am writing to God’s holy people in Ephesus, who are faithful followers of Christ Jesus. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.

 
Ephesians 1:1-3 (The Message)
I, Paul, am under God’s plan as an apostle, a special agent of Christ Jesus, writing to you faithful believers in Ephesus. I greet you with the grace and peace poured into our lives by God our Father and our Master, Jesus Christ. How blessed is God! And what a blessing he is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in him.

 

 

Why study the Bible this way?

If you take it into your mind and heart enough to translate it into a picture or word, it becomes part of you. If you add a sentence or two of explanation, you then engage another part of your brain which cements God’s words even firmer into your heart and mind. If you want to remember it, you can think of what you drew.
