I’m going to take a bit of a break from sharing on the Holy Spirit this week. The reason is mainly because of some time constraints that I have to today. So I thought I would share a little on the idea that Jesus is the subject of every book in the bible. Oral Roberts published a book with that as its title. I first heard it called The Red Thread. I thought I would share with you one of the lists I have found about how our Lord can be found in every book of the bible. These are not the only ways he can be found in each book; however, it is a list that could get you thinking as you read.

Jesus in Every Book of the Bible

God bless you all. Next week I will return to my ongoing study regarding the gifts or manifestations of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
