It had been a long time since the friend had seen HOBO-A. Though time brought them together again in the park, sitting on a park bench. HOBO-A had his Bible and a cup of coffee with him, at the present moment. The park had a glow of sunshine about it's surroundings. HOBO-A asked the friend, about the Bible itself.
The friend said, that it seemed to him the word of GOD scribed by called people. LAWS, history, and the ways of GOD, for man to follow. GOD, chose a people, starting with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to be an anchor of the people of the earth. Blessed people, for following GOD'S ways. GOD gave them Israel. Sort of the anchor land for GOD and his chosen people. All ships have anchors, and it's very important. The earth is the ship and Israel is the anchor.
People though, being people, stray from things.The Bible is the iron for the anchor. If people get lost, the Bible is the maintenance for the anchor and the ship. The manual to put it in lay mens terms. You have a question, the Bible has the answer. HOBO-A, you like myself go astray, and the Bible has the path to follow.
Jesus, in MARK: 8-34, deny yourself, take up the cross and follow me. Jesus asked and called people to follow him. As the anchor, a way of stability in following Jesus. A way of life, denying yourself from the world of lusts and wayward paths, leading to damnation.
HOBO-A, you get lost, have a question, GO TO THE BIBLE. The anchor of the ways of GOD. The teachings of GOD. The way GOD wants all people to be. BUT, we have to make our choices in life. My advice, FOLLOW JESUS.
