The Bible is not the book of the month. It is the book of the ages.
No book has ever had as much opposition as the Bible. Men have laughed at it, scorned it, ridiculed it, burned it, and made laws against it. Many a man has preached the funeral for the Bible. The only problem is, the corpse has outlived the pallbearers.
The Bible has survived, and it is applicable today. Any child of God can open the Bible and know more about what is going on in this world than all those in the Pentagon and White House put together.
Psalm 119:89 says, “For ever, O LORD, Thy word is settled in heaven.” I have preached this book long enough to know it’s not like any other book. We read other books, but this book reads us.
The Bible has power in it. What kind of power? Saving power for the sinner. You will not be saved and you will not get anybody else saved apart from the Word of God, because we are “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23).
