It is the precious old Book my mother read, quoted, shared and dictated the moral direction of her life.I have seen it in every foreign country where I have traveled, perched on lamp table with Gideon stamp on it. I have read all 66 books in the one perfect volume, the Bible. I have met shepherd boy kings, powerful prophets, talking donkeys, fiery chariots and the Savior of the world Jesus Christ.
It has taught me about life and prepared me for death. The Bible has taught me to save and how to give. It has taught me about the beginning and described in detail the end of all things. The 39 books of the Old Testament revealed the laws of nature set by God and records the laws of His word printed for man.
The 27 books of the New Testament teach how the God who made man in His own image, made himself in mans image and entered the human stream of events to die for our sins. There are Gospels and letters, disciples and demons, a baby in a animal trough and a King on a white steed coming to close out the age.
The Bible is the most criticized, scrutinized, loved and hated, ignored and quoted piece of literature ever written. Over 40 writers under the inspiration of the Spirit penned words they didn’t always understand. A period of nearly 1500 years were spanned to collect and connect these truths known as the holy Bible, Gods word.
It does little good to have one and not read it. More important than what others say about is what it says to you. It is bread to the hungry, water to the thirsty, a staff to the weak to lean on, a road map to the pilgrim, an instruction manual for the student and for the seeker of truth satisfaction.
I love this Book. I know it’s Author. I trust it’s content. I am blessed by its comforting words.
It is time for my Bible reading and again, refreshment for my soul.
