While walking on the treadmill this morning a phrase came to me..."live by the Book" and right after that another phrase..."live IN the Book".
The Book is the Bible...God's Word to us. It's our map, blueprint, a "lamp"...a "light" to the path of our life's journey.
Living IN the Book, to me, is a step further than just living by the Book. Living IN the Book is learning to see with our hearts, seeing through the eyes of God. Simply taking Him at His Word when our physical situations and surroundings seem to be contrary.
It's living by faith...faith in His Word. His Word is more sure than what our physical eyes can see.
That's how He wants us to live.
