Clarus ’11 is Now

2011 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Clarus 11

Today begins our three day conference on the nature and importance of Scripture. Given our theme, “Scripture: God Speaks,” we will be learning about and reflecting on what God has said about what His Word is and what God’s Word does. Like Psalm 119,  Psalm 19:7-11 not only tells us what the Word is, but stirrs our affections for God’s Word in doing so. Today especially, this is a good Scripture with which to start our day:

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise  the simple;

the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;

the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and drippings of  the honeycomb.

Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.

May God grant us to see His Word better for what it is through our time together this weekend. May we know its perfection, its purity, and its truth. And may God’s Word revive our souls, enlighten our eyes, warn us, and be to us far sweeter than honey.

The Books and Resources Room opens at 4:30 and the first session begins at 6:15. Tickets are available online or at the door.
