August is the perfect time of year to vacation by a lake. Cool waters lapping the shore soothe tired feet and take stress away.
God’s Word is so much better than a lake in August! When His people grow weary of this worldly rat race and the stress of sin, Scripture can transport them to a place of peace and joy, a place where their sin is recognized, forgiveness is sought, and redemption received. God has given His people His holy Word, a sanctuary in this dark world where we find His truth, mercy, and grace. How do we know this? The Bible tells us so!
“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).
