Scarlet letters, written there in the Book
Teachings of the Lord, here have a look
Wisdom beyond the finite scope of man
Conveyed by the One with nail pierced hands
Lessons for a follower’s fertile heart
Knowledge of God’s Kingdom to impart
Shared with all those He calls in love
Insight delivered from Heaven above
Do not focus on the “Thou shalt nots”
Nor search for hidden agendas or plots
In scarlet letters, it is all laid bare
A guide for a soul to get from here to there
Scarlet letters to stand out bold
To highlight life’s lessons as Jesus told
Written so simple, yet deeply profound
To free those whom the enemy has bound
Brothers and Sisters,
One could spend the rest of their lives studying only the scarlet letters in the Bible. I am sure some studies have been done and books have been written. Reference material is good to aid in studies, but I find that it is through my personal studies that I learn the most.
The funny thing about the Bibles that have the Lord’s words written in red is that even the lost give them reverence. It conveys an importance to all who see these bold highlights. The entire Bible is important because it is the Word of God, but I find that the highlighted red letters cut to the chase. Salvation can be found in the scarlet letters.
Keep serving with all your heart, soul, body, and mind.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I never thought about it in that way before--the scarlet letters, being Christ's words. I find red hard to read, so have always preferred to read a Bible that does not have red lettering. But I shall look at it in a different light from now on. Thanks for your message....Helen
There is a Christian song "Make it a Red letter Day." We need make every day a Red letter day! And when we don't the Spirit reminds us with persistance! Hope all is well with your and your family. God Bless you and you continue to serve and write for Him! Love Danette
AMEN Brother - My Preacher likes to say "Make it a red letter day!" This was a wonderful poem but my favorite line was this: Salvation can be found in the scarlet letters. So true and beautiful. Thanks for sharing what God has shown you. Love in Christ,
Yes, reading the Words today that Jesus spoke so many years ago works almost like a time machine when the Spirit reveals its teaching to my heart. It's as if I am sitting at the Savior's feet drinking in His Words of knowledge first-hand that ultimately give me hope, healing and the security of my own Eternal Life. Thank you, Christian for this word today and blessings from Above as you serve our Lord. Jody
