different views with the same love~

I love the four gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, four men the Holy Spirit used through their writing to share with the world Jesus. What is cool about these four gospels is they are all told by different men, in different ways, in different views, but they all come together as one story telling about the life, the death and the resurection of Jesus. They told the same story from different points of view. Many have a favorite gospel, one that seems to speak to their heart. Just as if there were an intersection where an accident had taken place, and there are four witness' to this accident, all seeing from different points of view, but all seeing the same thing, write down every detail they see and hear. They have all told the officer what happened, they had all seen it, now the officer can gather the information he needs, knowing they are reliable sources, and with all their reports, he can now make out his statement with the best evidence possible. Just as with our minds reading the gospels, we too can read all different four and learn so much more by bringing them together. God did this for us, He knew we are all different and we all learn in different ways. What an amazing gift He has given to us. Four beautiful gospels, written for us, His children to learn about His life and His ministry. He is the greatest teacher we will ever have. Its time to sit at our desk, open our bible, and begin our great study that will only bring us closer to Him. I can remember a time in my life where studying was not a top priority of mine, therefore my grades showed just how much effort I put in. You receive just how much you put in. I could have made straight A's, but I chose to focus on other things. Today I love learning, I love sitting at my desk, diving in to His words and learning so much. Just as then, what we put in we will receive. Just as my lack of studying then showed, our lack of studying God's word show also. Dive in to those gospels today, reach in, open your heart and you will pull out so much knowledge, you will only yearn for more. "Be diligent to present yourselves approved to God, a worker who does not need be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15 "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that a man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
