A Bazillion Times Upon a Time

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…..there lived a prince who was in love with a girl, she was beneath him, so he had to give of himself to make her more than she physically was, to be his bride…no wait…I mean, there was a father who had two sons, one was his favorite and his brother was angry and jealous, so he killed him, or tried to anyway…no, that’s not quite it…. oh YES! there was a good master who had this evil little minion that betrayed him and tried to take over his kingdom….no….maybe there was a group of little good guys who were being picked on by the big bad guys.  They were outnumbered, out-weaponed and out-strengthed, but because they did the right thing, they won despite all odds.

How is it that we ignore that every story ever written is grounded in the Word of God?  It’s no longer “Once upon a time…it’s become a bazillion times upon a time.” There may be details that make it seem different, but any story stripped of its “clothes” will always come back to the Word.  SO, why is it that we read the Word of God differently from all other books?  Why do we fail to keep all the details gathered together and at the front of our mind, so that we don’t even think to put the details of, say….Deuteronomy 29:29 together with Ephesians 3:5 and 1 Corinthians 2:10?  Or why do we neglect to read it as though it were our own personal history?  And why is it that we are ready to believe Romans 10:9, but not so much Luke 10:19?

Why is it that the world is so drawn to the Word of our God, that they can’t write a single thing that isn’t somehow taken from the Bible, yet we may go days or weeks or even longer without ever opening it ourselves?  Instead let’s act like that which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us); that which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
