The Next time you pick up your Bible to read, stop for a moment and reflect on the blood that was spilled, and the lives that were martyred to freely give us the Word of God today. The Bible is not just a collection of religious history, it’s not just a book of literature, Jesus said, “My Words are Spirit and Life” …King David wrote in Psalm 119:161 & 89 “My Heart Stands in Awe of Thy Word; It is Forever Settled in the Heavens” Then continue to read your Bible with this prospective: His Word WILL NOT return to Him void, but WILL accomplish all that He has purposed!
Ask yourself, does a man or woman die the death of a martyr for just a book? Or did they know something many of us lack in knowing today? Jesus said, I have come in the volume of the book that is written of me, to do Thy will O’ God, and in the end His name is called the Word of God…..John 1:1 In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD is GOD.
For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at MY WORD.
Oh how we need a holy reverence of God’s Word restored within His people. Lord, may our heart’s stand in awe, our lives become one with Your Holy Word, that we may reflect Your love, and Your truth, Your Light, in a darkened world.
In the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ as He prayed in the Gospel of John chapter seventeen, Sanctify them through thy truth: THY WORD IS TRUTH!
The entrance of THY WORD giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
The Bible you and I read today, is the Bible that men, women, and children have and continue to sacrifice their lives for, because they believe in the very Words that God has spoken to us…. Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a WORD behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Isaiah 34:16 Seek ye out of THE BOOK OF THE LORD, and READ: Why? Because they are SPIRIT and they are LIFE!!!
