God's Love Letter, The Bible

The Bible! more precious than fine gems and gold
The hopes and the glories its pages unfold
It tells me of Jesus and of His great love
It leads me to heaven where Jesus sits up above

Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

In this dark and cruel world we are living in we NEED God's word like never before. The Word will be a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. Many are seeking God but can't find Him because they aren't reading their bibles. The Word is our hiding place and shield from the fiery darts of the enemy. Mat 4:4, 2Ti 3:16,
Psalm 119:105, Psa 119:114

The whole of Scripture is but one entire love
letter, dispatched from the Lord Christ, to
His beloved spouse!

The Word of the Lord is . . .
a light to guide you,
a counselor to counsel you,
a comforter to comfort you,
a staff to support you,
a sword to defend you,
a physician to cure you!

I encourage you to. . .
search the Scripture,
study the Scripture,
meditate on the Scripture,
delight in the Scripture,
treasure up the Scripture!

So that. . .
your blind minds may be enlightened,
your hard hearts may be softened,
your proud spirits may be humbled,
your sinful natures may be changed,
your defiled consciences may be purged,
your distempered affections may be regulated,
and your poor souls may be saved . . .

Give yourself up to . . .
to the reading
to the studying,
to the pondering,
to the believing,
to the practicing,
to the applying, and
to the living up to the Scripture.

Turn A Page

Turn a page to hear a voice
Of One who helps us make a choice.
Call upon His name this hour
Be saved by His grace and power.

Turn a page to read some more
Of golden gates beyond a door
A door still open for those in need
Of sins forgiven and being freed.

Pages flow perfectly into each other
Encouraging us to love one another.
Turn another, ponder and read
And on His Word, begin to feed.

Living words will take hold
Granting us faith to then be bold…
Bold enough to honor His book
That draws us deeper for another look.

God writes upon each seeking heart
And changes us to become a part
Of His family joined with holy love
Who are entered into His book above.

Seeds of faith are found on each page
Planted in souls throughout each age.
Golden pages help us to see
The glory of eternity.

Psalm 119:140
Thy word is very pure:
therefore thy servant loveth it.
