God’s Word

I was reading my Bible tonight. When I got done, I looked at it. I thought about how amazing it is that I have God’s Word in my hands. I get to read it every day. I am so grateful for that.
There are places in this world where it is illegal to own a Bible. About 52 countries. People are in prison around this world that are there because they own a Bible or have spoken about Jesus. People have even been killed for this reason.
The Bible is amazing. It is God’s Word in print. His love letter to us. I love to read it. It’s like a treasure hunt every time I open it. There is so much wisdom there. Life-giving wisdom. Yes, sometimes it is convicting. But God is trying to help me grown & become better every day.
I can’t imagine my life without the Bible. Many things come and go in my life. But I need God’s Word every day & many times a day at that. I need His guidance, love, reassurance, etc. in my life.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. -2 Timothy 3:16-17
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. -Psalm 119:105

  1. You said, “I can’t imagine my life without the Bible.” Unfortunately, most people never take the time to imagine what that would actually be like. Most people DO live their lives without the Bible playing a part, but they do so with the knowledge (whether or not they think about it) that it’s always there, should they ever feel they need to crack the cover – after all, you can find a Gideon-placed one just about anywhere hotel rooms are booked. Yet, to be honest, even most of us in ministry take the Bible for granted – myself included.

    I have been to places where the Bible had been made illegal. I have talked with people who put their lives at risk just to have the rare privilege to read a page or two. I’ve also had tears shed on my hands as I’ve handed a Bible to an elderly woman who had not seen one in 70 years. I CAN imagine what life would be life without a Bible, but I rarely do.

    Thanks for your post. I will start imagining again.
