Words of Grace

“He plants the words [of scripture] full of actual graces as we read them and suddenly undiscovered meanings are sown in our hearts … reading with minds that are at prayer.” Thomas Merton

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Have you sometimes noticed that a verse you’re read many times seems to jump off the page with new meaning? When we read the Bible with minds that are at prayer, we meet God. A message he hid there through the ages comes alive in you. God loves you that much.
