Go to God's word. It will bring light to your path.
The Bible is the #1 best selling book of all time. Year after year it continues to show up on the best seller's list. Millions of people throughout the world own a Bible, but many don't understand its value, its importance. The Bible is taken for granted, tossed to and fro, and an object, in many cases, that just collects dust.
The Holy Bible is the written Word of God. The Bible was given thousands of years ago to bring hope, knowledge, and instruction to generation after generation of readers. The Word is life. The scriptures are given for help, understanding, and healing. It is amazing that a portion of scripture will give exactly what we need for whatever the current situation. The words remain the same but it molds to the present need.
The Bible is our history book, our weapon of defense, our instruction manual. The Bible explains our past, assists us with the present, and foretells our future. What an amazing gift from God. How truly precious this gift really is.
I enjoy creating scrapbook pages. I put a lot of thought, time, and money into the projects. They are important to me. Those who have handmade gifts, letters, and cards from loved ones treasure these possessions, because of the effort, thought, time, and love poured into them. Their gifts are priceless and irreplaceable. Well, the Bible was our gift from God. Think about the love, time, effort, and for some writers of the Bible, the hardships, pain and suffering endured. Some even lost their lives so that the Word would be placed in our hands and pierced into our minds and hearts.
Our Bibles should be our most prized possession, an absolute treasure. They should be handled with care and reverence. The Bible isn't just a “book,” it is our map to eternal life. It is our inheritance.
I think to most people,
the Bible represents death;
after all, they usually just
see it at funerals, and the
like. So, they're kind'a
afraid of it. I know I was.
The best thing to do, is get
into a group Bible study where
you're reading it with other
people....and then, you realize that it represents
just the oppposite: life.
