A CHALLENGE

A CHALLENGE

Spirituality does not come
From reading the bible thru,
It comes from a heart that’s right with God,
That reflects in all you do.

But I’ve found a joy in reading it thru,
So I’d like to offer this challenge to you.

When was the last time you went down into Egypt,
With Joseph, as a slave in a caravan?
Then watched as he told his brothers
Who sold him there,
It was all-apart of Gods’ Plan.

Or when was the last time you walked with
Joshua and Caleb, as they viewed the promise land?
Or stood as David told mighty Goliath,
“This day shall the Lord deliver you
Into my hand”?

Have you recently seen as the lame man walked,
Or Jesus made the deaf and the dumb to talk?

Heard blind Bartimaseus cry
“Jesus thou Son of David have mercy on me”?
Or watched as a man turned back,
And with a loud voice glorify God,
This one who was healed of lepercy?

The woman of Canaan said Lord just a crumb
Is all that I asked of thee,
“My daughter is Grievously vexed with a demon”
And I want you to please set her free.

Some of the greatest stories I’ve left untold,
But they’re far more precious than rarest gold.
They could put a twinkle in a little childs’ eyes,
And warm up even the hardest heart that’s grown Cold.

But I’ve found a treasure only a heart can hold,
But when I try to explain it, it cannot be told,
Can’t be given away, or ever be sold,
But it’s a treasure that will never grow old.

But I’ll keep my treasure, for I’ve grown to love,
The stories, which tell of Gods’ Gift From Above,
And I’ll search yet again, just to walk with my Friend,
And together we’ll stroll from beginning to end.

Here’s my challenge to you, take the “Bible” off the shelf,
Open Its’ Pages, and read it for yourself.
Look for "The God Of The Ages" on each of Its’ Pages.
Find Jesus within, make Him your Friend,
Then you’ll be off on a journey
That will never end.
A-men?
Samuel L. Saalwaechter

Psalm 119:162
I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

Psalm 19:7-11
7. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. King James Version (KJV)

Wow! A treasure indeed. As I grow in the knowledge of the Lord, I realise how important it is to feed on His word. I enjoy walking with my Saviour through the pages of the bible, though I find that I don't get to do it as often as I would like to. Thanks for the challenge.

Here’s my challenge to you, take the “Bible” off the shelf, Open Its’ Pages, and read it for yourself.

I hope everyone who reads this challenge of Samuel's will take him up on it. There is no finer reading available, for the Holy Bible is God's Book to us. God authored it through His inspiring Godly men to write what He gave them.
Thank you, Samuel.
Thomas
