John Bradshaw - Machu Picchu
You could just about imagine the awe, the wonder Hiram Bingham experienced. Went on an exhibition in Peru, he came across Machu Picchu, ruins of what was once a magnificent Inca settlement high in the Andes. Bingham was an historian, and a lecturer at Yale, he became the first Westerner to see Machu Picchu. But he definitely didn't discover it. The locals knew it was there, it seems others had traveled there too. He simply uncovered what already existed.
That's the joy of Bible study: the truth is all there, the great stories, the accounts of the life of Jesus, the miracles, creation - all there, and waiting to be discovered by you. So what are you waiting for?
2 Peter 1:4 says, "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises..." The promises are great, and they're precious, and they're yours. Go make some great discoveries today. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written.
