Are you amazed and horrified at the Word of God?

Would that the Word of God had this effect on me!!! Dear Lord Jesus, who IS the very word of God – cause me to tremble at your word and never cease to be amazed and horrified at what it portends and pronounces!

“I came home to my house and saw a New Testament lying before me. I took it up and there I met with that first chapter of John, and I took the book and fell a reading: ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’ Upon reading this my body trembled, my soul presently was amazed, and for all the day I did not know where I was. I was struck with such horror and amazement that it shook every joint of me and my heart trembled within me, and I knew not where I was all the day long.” ~ Franciscus Junius, Huguenot scholar and theologian (1545 – 1602) Quoted by Jeremiah Burroughs in “Gospel Fear”

  1. And behold, this Word receiveth sinners and eateth with them.
    Come and dine the Master calleth, come and dine..
    I believe I will.
