The Bible isn’t just a collection of heart-warming stories. More importantly it gives us clues on how other people, just like us interacted with a real God who knew their highest thoughts, deepest worries and darkest sins – yet still loved them and longed to bring them into a full experience of His love and power.
Our God communicates through words we understand. It is our sacred responsibility to respond to Him, not with grand-sounding speeches with little true meaning, but with words of faith from the heart – this is the message of Luke ch. 18 v. 9-14.
