Selah Moments

The Invitation is set

While doing some reading for a particular class at the seminary, I came across a portion of the Scripture that I had read before, but which somehow surfaced in a new light. This is one of the reasons why I love the Bible. It never changes, yet every single time we approach it, it sheds light, and we gain a new perspective on it.  The Holy Spirit speaks directly to us.
