2014년에 자가출판했던 저의 묵상집의 내용을 여기 조금씩 올려보고자 합니다.
지금 생각하면 이런 뻘짓(?)을 했는지 모르겠지만, 글쓰는 걸 좋아하던 열정이 있던 제 30대 때 한때 모습입니다. 책에 실렸던 그림들은 Mary Bailey 화가이신 분을 고용해서 만들어진 것입니다.

Jesus is the center of the Bible. I believe that every story in the Bible revolves around the story of Jesus. The stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and David are like the planets in the solar system and Jesus’ story is the sun. Planets do not have their own lights. They shine in the dark night because they reflect the sun’s light. Like this, other stories in the Bible can be properly interpreted through the light of Jesus’ story. Other stories are access points to Jesus’ story, which is huge and great, beyond human comprehension.
If you ever tried a book called “Where’s Waldo?”, you probably know the thrill when you find him. I felt the same way. You won’t find the name Jesus in the Old Testament. However, His name is all over the stories in the Bible. When you walk into the garden called the Bible, every single leaf that reflects light in the spring breeze is whispering the name of Jesus. Every single rock on the ground and cloud in the sky sing His name. I found that everything in the Bible eventually points toward Him.
My life story, which used to be a wandering meteor, is now settled in the orbit of Jesus’ story. I hope my life reflects His light and can be understood and interpreted in His light and serves to point others to the greatest story of God.
