God’s word (scripture) is like a two-sided billboard that stands at the edge of a great chasm. On one side. the side pointing out across the great chasm are scriptures that speak to the lost (those people who are on the other side of the chasm from God). Scriptures that call out to them… pleading and warning His creations to come across and to be saved. On the other side of the billboard are scriptures that speak to His people (those whom have come across the chasm and are now saved)… Scriptures that strengthen and develop us in our new stance.
