A TRIBUTE TO THE BIBLE
The Bible is not an amulet, a charm, a fetish or a book that will work
wonders by its very presence. It is a book that will work wonders in every
life, here and hereafter, if acted upon and obeyed in faith and sincerity.
It is God's inspired revelation of the origin and destiny of all things,
written in the simplest human language possible so that the most unlearned
can understand and obey its teachings. It is self-interpreting and covers
every subject of human knowledge and need now and forever.
As a literary composition, the Bible is the most remarkable book ever made.
It is a divine library of 66 books, some of considerable size, and others
no larger than a tract. These books include various forms of literature -
history, biography, poetry, proverbial sayings, hymns, letters, directions
for elaborate ritualistic worship, laws, parables, riddles, allegories,
prophecy, drama, and others. They embrace all manner of literary styles in
It is the book that reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way of
Salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its
doctrines are Holy, its precepts binding, its histories true, and its
Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. The
Bible contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to
cheer you. It is the travelers map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilots
compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christians charter. Here heaven is
opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand subject, our
good is its design, and the Glory of God its end. It should fill your
memory, rule your heart, and guide your feet in true righteousness and
Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully, meditatively, searchingly,
devotionally, and study it constantly, perseveringly, and industriously.
Read it through and through until it becomes a part of your being and
generates faith that will move mountains.
The Bible is a mine of wealth, the source of health, and a world of
pleasure. It is given to you in this life, will be opened at the judgment,
and will stand forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward
the least to the greatest of labor, and will condemn all who trifle with
its sacred contents.
God has given us His instruction manual for daily living, so every time
you need an answer to a question or just an uplifting word; the Bible is
there to comfort and assure you that all is well. I encourage you to go to
the Book that can calm your fears and show you that no matter how hopeless
your situation may be; there is still One who says "With men it may be
impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)
Whatever the problem or whatever has you worried, God's Word has the answer
of freedom and comfort. Open the Bible if you have not done so recently
and ask the Lord to speak to you through His Word and God will be faithful
to hear and answer your prayer and calm every fear in your heart; for in
Him there is only Peace and Joy unspeakable. (Psalm 16:11)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Proverbs 4:20-22 "My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to
my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst
of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all
John 1:1-3 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were
made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made."
Psalm 119:160-165 "The entirety of Your Word is truth, And every one of
Your righteous judgments endures forever. Princes persecute me without a
cause, But my heart stands in awe of Your word. I rejoice at Your word As
one who finds great treasure. I hate and abhor lying, But I love Your law.
Seven times a day I praise You, Because of Your righteous judgments. Great
peace have those who love Your law, And nothing causes them to stumble."
All scriptures can be found in the New King James Version.
