Matthew 22:36, "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" We are like electricity, in that we tend to take the path of least resistance. The Pharisees asked the question to trap JESUS, but they really wanted clarification for themselves. Do you remember when you started reading the Bible, everything was so new and fresh. It could leave you in tears or just simply awestruck! The revelations you had were so clear (Truth) that you could not contain the desire to tell everyone what has been revealed! Then, we became a little (or a lot) lazy and preferred to have someone else "interpret" or tell us what the Scriptures meant. Ah, "interpretation", the explanation of something that is not immediately obvious. No where in any definition do we see a similarity or cohesiveness between "interpretation" and TRUTH. The WORD in the Bible is alive; it speaks for itself, it is communing with GOD directly as HE alone gives us a foundation for knowledge, to know the AUTHOR our CREATOR and let this understanding govern our lives and our decisions. The Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) all tell the life of JESUS but not exactly the same way. But their descriptions do not change the TRUTH, that JESUS lived, was the SON of GOD, worked miracles and taught HIS Disciples. Need someone to explain the Scriptures, then rely on the best COUNSELOR, THE HOLY SPIRIT. The revelations and understanding you receive from reading and praying the Scriptures are from GOD. Don't turn over the responsibility of knowing what the Bible says to someone else. You will find that reading the Bible for yourself is THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE. AMEN!
Psalm 139: 23-24
