As Though For the First Time

In college, I read Frederick Buechner’s Longing for Home and underlined these words he uses to describe a wonderful preacher: “His passion was in his oddly ragged eloquence and in the way he could take words you had heard your whole life and make you hear them and the holiness in them as though for the first time.” I thought of teachers and writers and preachers who made me feel this way.

What a gift! I am so thankful for those people the Lord used to make the Bible come alive. I pray my own words could do this for others.
