Message for December 1 - Behold: When God Says, "Pay Attention!"

Hello BBT friends and family.  As I’m writing this, we would normally be at church and about to get started.  However, due to the potential for icy conditions, it was decided to play it safe and cancel today’s services.  I miss being with you and it looks so far like our concern was unnecessary, but we would rather everyone be safe.  I look forward to seeing you all next weekend as we celebrate with Tim and Cindy.  Harvest Oaks is still planning to do the service and dinner for us.  It has been rescheduled for December 8.

A few weeks ago, I was reading in the Bible and a word jumped out at me.  It’s a seemingly insignificant word.  It occurs so often in the Bible that many commentaries and word study resources ignore it. The word is, “behold.”  Look!  Pay attention!  Take note!  Sometimes it’s part of conversations between people and may not have any more significance than when we preface our sentences with something like “look” or “you see.”  But maybe we should look a little more closely when Biblical authors use it to highlight what they have written.  Maybe we should pay special attention when God says, “Pay attention!”  Walk with me through some key places in the scripture when God said, “behold!”  I can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
