Speaking about the Bible, a saint once said, “I have no greater pleasure than to be in a nook with the Book.” Do you have that mindset?
The Bible is the book that the martyrs held onto as the flames crept closer and closer. It’s the book the saints put their head upon as they went from this world into the next. It’s the book for which John Wycliffe, Jan Hus, and William Tyndale gave their life’s work—and in some cases, their lives—getting it into a language people could read. It’s the book that gives bread to the hungry, water to the thirsty, life to the wayfarer, strength to the weak, and a weapon to the warrior. It is the living, breathing, dynamic Word of God.
God’s book rejoices the heart. It is completely trustworthy. There are over 6,000 promises in the Bible, and not one has ever been broken.
