Seeing Yourself in Scripture

Convicted

Have you ever read a passage that really hit you between the eyes? You saw yourself in it because it convicted you (Hebrews 4:12).

For example, we read what James teaches about the tongue (James 3:1-12) and realize we need to work on this.

Or we may identify with Peter who claimed he would die with Jesus but later denied knowing Him.

Equipped

Positively, God’s word equips us. It shows us how to deal with an unreasonable boss (1 Peter 2:18-21). It gives us reason to rejoice when unbelievers badmouth us (Matthew 5:10-12).

In these and so many other passages we can connect with what we read and take new heart.

If we haven’t seen ourselves in Scripture lately, maybe it’s time to take another look!
