I was thinking of Christians, love for them from Jesus, so strong.
How much I wanted to say this so often, these days.
Read the Bible, especially the New Testament which will help us walk today.
Read all the Bible, but read the New Testament, a lot, and get it in to us. Don't leave off the New Testament and instructions in it.
It will keep us, by the Holy Spirit, in our walk today.
It is instruction in our walks today and balance for our walk and protection.
Bind the Word of God to us. Treasure her.
Everything the Lord has said in the New Testament is true for today.
To read the Bible protects from the counterfeit. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth.
To read it over and over to study to show ourselves approved, a workman not ashamed, but rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
I wanted to say, if I could say anything right now to Christians, to not forsake reading the New Testament, but bind it to us, and read it more and more.
Read the whole Bible, and donít leave off the New Testament, it is for today. Bind the Word of God to us. Treasure her.
There is safety and protection in getting the Word of God into us.
The Holy Spirit will bring it to our remembrance.
As I was saying that in my mindís eye, about the need to read the Word of God more and get it into us, and now especially seeing the need to read the New Testament more and more, which I see often left off, it became the Word of God in Proverbs, and I understood the father talking to his children.
I knew that father by Jesus Christ, talking to his children and admonishing them for their good and wanting their protection.
Listen, my sons, to a fatherís instruction;
pay attention and gain understanding.
I give you sound learning,
so do not forsake my teaching.
When I was a boy in my fatherís house,
still tender, and an only child of my mother,
he taught me and said,
ďLay hold of my words and with all your heart;
keep my commands and you will live.
Get wisdom, get understanding;
do not forget my words or swerve from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;
love her, and she will watch over you.
Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
Esteem her, and she will exalt you;
embrace her, and she will honor you.
She will set a garland of grace on your head
and present you with a crown of splendor.
Listen, my son, accept what I say,
and the years of your life will be many.
I guide you in the way of wisdom
and lead you along straight paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;
When you run, you will not stumble.
Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
guard it well, for it is your life.
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked
or walk in the way of evil men.
Avoid it, do not travel on it;
turn from it and go on your way.
For they cannot sleep till they do evil;
they are robbed of slumber
till they make someone fall.
They eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
They do not know what makes them stumble.
My son, pay attention to what I say;
Listen closely to my words.
Do not let them out of your sight,
keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them
and health to a manís whole body.
Above all else, guard your heart,
for it is the wellspring of life.
Put away perversity from your mouth;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead,
fix your gaze directly before you.
Make level paths for your feet
and take only ways that are firm.
Do not swerve to the right or the left;
Keep your foot from evil.
